Hello my friends!Several of you have checked on me via E-mail because I haven't posted in awhile. Thank you for being concerned about my well-being. I'm feeling quite fine! The truth is I've been too busy enjoying Life to write about it! We had a visit from my friend, Mary, and her husband last week. It snowed while they were here! In just a few days, fall changed into winter at altitude. Since then, we've had balmy, sunny days, but a bit of snow still remains on the ground around the house. Perhaps this will be our winter's base - but I'm waiting to sow my perennial seeds until I'm sure.
We've had some frequent visitors to our yard in the past couple weeks:
This tiny fox shows up in the late afternoon.
It pretends to be nonchalant, but sneaks hopeful glances at me.
|Got any fox snacks?|
Finally it moves on to find more productive "hunting" grounds.
Small herds of deer arrive late in the day.
They're very interested in what's left in my garden.
|Snort! Oh, it's only you, Barb! You startled me.|
|I used will power when these were blooming - but surely you can't begrudge me now!|
After a slow spring start because of all of last winter's snow, my gardens bloomed nonstop until the snow fell. I've made a garden slideshow which I'll keep on the sidebar a couple weeks for anyone interested. Special thanks to my Blog friend, Christine, whose album, FRAGILE BEAUTY provides the background music.
