wow, what a bloom!
The gardener sold vegetables for a long time. This year she raised flowers to sell instead. All that the deer won't eat
Steady rain today.
Excellent choice - vegetables pretty much look alike - that flower is really remarkable
Raising vegetables and then have them eaten by deer must be rather frustrating. And that flower is so beautiful.
My deer, who unfortunately hasn't come back, seemed to like the WEEDS
i glanced out the window early to be met with a gaze from a doe and her rather large fawn. i thought they lost their spots soon enough, this one looks almost as big as its mama they went back to nibbling at the lawn/grassy bit until un-nerved by the human staring at them ; hurried away into the woods.
now we have to look Monday in the face
Monday went by but Tuesday is staring just like it. It is a bit chillier these days, still not much rain, though.
But we are still spending much time in the garden, being indoors at daylight feels cooped up after a summer spent out of doors.
Today the chestnut tree is trying to murder us - the chestnuts are coming down with such an impact (and make so much noise hitting the wooden deck) that Jette ducked behind me.
How does Tuesday do that
wh-oh bad tree!
Are the chestnuts worth keeping?
Rain continues, sometimes teeming Light drizzle not too bad, temps warm <---- perfect for.
My cat spent all of summer outdoors, has resigned herself to staying in on rainy nights. She avoids any little bed we put for her. Last night she slept on my knitting needle case I'd left on the work table. It is a roll of corduroy. Quite a cozy mattress?!
VERY bad tree :thonktree:
Cats will be cats - Ms. Kristi Belle has decided she really, REALLY likes the cat cave she wouldn't deign to go near originally. It is now her favorite place to nap in the afternoon and doze in the evening.
well, that was an excellent acquisition, then a roll of corduroy, though, sounds like a rather uncomfortable place. But cats are unfathomable.
The chestnuts are horse chestnuts, but I keep them for a while because they look like the surface of old and beautiful wooden furniture … until they shrivel up.
When they are fresh off the tree they feel nice, too - all smooth and firm. Nice to keep in the jacket pocket for a walk to fondle
Sad about the earring, Moo. I find it’s always the ones you like that vanish; the ok ones stick around forever.
Back down at Mums for two weeks; work has been chaos computer-wise. Firstly my PC suicided (fatal error) and it took them over a week to send a new one and reinstall most of my software. Then - ta-dash - Two lightning strikes in 6 weeks, we’d only just got everything almost back up when the second one hit and took us out again. Nobody willing to do anything for several days as we were getting a whole new bunch of hardware, which has arrived and is all in and looking pretty, but we can’t use it as we still have no internet (tech support from the I-net provider is pants) which means we can’t even log onto a computer because they need the internet to authenticate our log in credentials!! All at the point where we have a month to do our annual reserve reports! Ok if you can go out and build a fence instead, but all of my job needs the computer! How long it will all take to reach an operational condition when the internet is back us anyone’s guess! So sort of happy to be out of it!
meanwhile I’ve decided to resurrect my blog.
