A Wonderful Autumn Day

The garden may be over for the season but Autumn is still a wonderful time to be outdoors.  Yesterday was one of those days!

And that was in the shade!

10 26 Laundry A perfect day for bedding on the clothesline.

10 26 Back view
Leaves are quickly covering the ground.  Oh, and acorns too!  I think there are approximately 3 trillion of them in my yard.

10 26 Elsa 
Elsa (aka City Dog) enjoys nature’s bounty of acorns as toys.

10 26 Brug
The brugs are enjoying the weather – no longer panting from excessive heat.

10 26 Watering
I don’t ever recalling having to water in October!

10 26 Geranium
Geraniums really seem to enjoy cooler weather.
Last year I was in a little store where they bring in their geranium flower boxes and over winter them in a window.  Even though it’s a drafty spot, they survive and actually thrive.  I may try that this year.

I hope you are enjoying good weather too.

The First Miner Rescued in Chile

The first of the Chilean miners was rescued from the San Jose mine about 1 1/2 hours ago.   The thought of being contained 1/2 mile under the earth's surface for 69 days is much more than my mind can fathom.

Please pray that the other 32 are brought home safe and sound to their families.
