This Week in the Garden

Oh I do love the colors of fall.... today is the day... I always know winter is on the way when KD blows out the sprinklers. I know you're picturing him down on the ground with his lips up against the underground sprinkler lines, but we're high tech now, he got an air compressor for Father's Day last year. So now it's just the flip of a switch. Men like their power tools. I don' t know what it is, but every Friday when the Canadian Tire flyer comes in the paper, all the men are glued to the tool section. I know this for a fact, because I have seen it time and again in other homes than just my own! I guess it's sort of like women and their Tupperware parties, imagining all the storage possibilities and kitchen organization they will achieve.

My asters are so purple, they are almost hard to look at. But yesterday, I saw my sister-in-law's and they are much fuller and more bushy than mine. I don't know what I'm not doing right.
lThe burning bush really is this red, it's SOOC, I didn't tamper with it!

I seem to be followed every where I go. It's like I'm the queen or something!! Give me some space black dog! The kids call me the "mothership". When HE sees me, they always say, "the mothership has landed", and I become his world. Funny I'm not his world when a flock of quail are across the street and I'm calling him to come.

Ok, you're just bragging now.
