|Fall color on trees in my back yard|
We have moderate color on the trees in the area now, and soon we will be at peak color. I have noticed leaves accumulating on the ground for at least a week. Soon the yard will be blanketed with them. The following photos show what little growth is going on in my gardens.
|The last rose is blooming on the very old rose bush in the back yard garden.|
|I purchased a pot of mums from the grocery for table decor for a party, and then planted them in the back yard garden.|
|The Carolina jasmine vine that was severely damaged by the snow and cold last winter has rebounded and attained a lot of growth up the fence and arbor. But it produced no flowers this year.|
|There are various mushrooms growing in the lawn, but I haven't seen any in my gardens this year.|
|We have been seeing lots of deer feeding in the woods behind the house.|

I dread losing daylight savings time next weekend. To me that signals that winter is coming fast. I will savor the warmth of the afternoon sun as I walk the dog for the last few weeks until winter descends. Happy Halloween.
