I hope you’ve had a great weekend!
My daughter and I have been busy this week winterizing everything before
the big freeze. It’s getting colder and colder each night and we were afraid the
fountain would freeze and break, so we finally got around to taking it apart and putting it away for the winter.
In it’s place my daughter arranged some pumpkins, gourds
and burlap for a fall display. The dried one, that looks like a snake, came from a fall bazaar last year.
I would love to try my luck at drying the two larger ones.
Does anyone have any special tips on drying gourds?
All the leaves have fallen from the trees in our neighborhood except for……
this Gingko tree. It’s one of the showiest trees on our street.
Did you know they can live to be a thousand years old, mainly, because they are
resilient to diseases? I think I need to take some gingko… for sure!
Their leaves also have such an interesting fan shape, along with the different shades of soft yellows.

While driving and listening to the radio this week, a listener called in and said,
“did you ever notice how beautiful nature is, right before it dies?”
Hmm….I never thought of it before.
When I heard the temperatures were going to drop below freezing,
I picked every single flower I could find.
Are you looking forward to winter?
Every day look a a beautiful picture, read a beautiful poem, listen to some
beautiful music, and if possible, say some reasonable thing.
Thank you for stopping by….
Have a good week!Pin It now!
