The trio of boy cats discovered that the house is a pleasant place to be on chilly evenings or whenever a nap is needed.
A favorite place seems to be on top of the piano.
Sadly, Nellie became so relaxed there after breakfast yesterday that he rolled off and landed in a large 'beefsteak' begonia. Nellie was unhurt but the plant lost about a dozen leaves. [Sigh]
Such are the hazards of living with cats!
Little Edward, cozy on cushions.
With the suggestion of frost for Sunday evening, G. and I cut zinnias, roses, cosmos--anything we could salvage.
[It didn't frost!]
A tin cup full of roses--ignore the coiled hose in the back of G.'s truck--definitely not photogenic.
Autumn is my favorite season--I love the rich, mellow colors, crisp air, blue-sky afternoons.
J. cut the kale crop with the trimmer--G. has taken it home to can.
The back of her truck was laden with flowers and tender garden produce.
Pebbles, the elderly horse, prefers cooler weather and is more spritely than during the long hot summer.
Heuchera/Coral Bells. I lamented that this clump had been 'lost' to the heat and prolonged draught.
It was a delight to find these renewed plantlets when I cleared away some encroaching grass.
[So much for the laborious weeding and many bags of mulch--it appears the weeding is all to do over.]
The long view toward Payne Janes Hill.
