|Sunday afternoon sunshine after several wet rainy days|
The gardens are put to bed for the winter, the garlic planted and mulched. The new upper kitchen garden is ready for it's big debut next spring. Flower beds cut back, roses still need some mulch..but hope to get to that this week. Ramblin Rose will get her winter cover soon, and hopefully survive the cold, lonely months! Sure would have liked to take her out once more, but Lord willing next year! Woodshed filled and kindling at the ready. New flock of *chooks* (I love that Aussie name for chickens) are 5 months old today..and if I don't see some eggs soon..gonna try squeezin them! Love their distinctive personalities..and the TWO roos get along well... so far! ;o)

I love Autumn, it is my favorite time of the year...and October is my favorite month
We married 39 years ago on October 16th
Some autumn beauty and blessings....
The last of the roses....
Nature's bird baths from the autumn rains
drying clothes in the crisp autumn breezes
Getting ready for cozy fires .....
planting garlic in my new kitchen garden....
Last of the autumn blackberries put into a pie
Last few trips down to the lower garden to glean
and put it to bed...
To everything there is a season
