Counting Down

I was so surprised to realize that this is my 499th post on this blog.  I know that by some standards, it's not a landmark, but it did take me by surprise.  My next blog post will be my 500th!  I have really enjoyed doing this.  I am infrequent, but hopefully, you always find something to take away from it...and hopefully, it lightens your spirit for just a moment in the day.  That is always my hope, anyway.

We have been cleaning up our yard.  The Summer is over and Fall is well on it's way to being Winter.  Though our days our sunny and the leaves are at their peak, many are falling and creating wonderful piles to rake.  I hate to see it go.... but we plan to follow the sun this year and head to a warmer climate for a bit.  I shall blog from there and share new adventures with you.

Leaves are filling in the nooks
and crannies of the garden

Newer leaves seem to land
on top of the older ones,
creating great mulch for the garden.

The view over the back fence
create a beautiful tapestry
of golds and greens

All of our bins are filling up with
bits of the garden
and flowers, past their prime.
