It warmed up a bit today, and it was clear and sunny, a good day to do some work in the yard.
This morning I cleaned up the patio under the cedar tree, which is very messy, and then collected all of the yard art and glass flowers to be stored for the winter. Tom moved pots and tender plants into the greenhouse.
At noon we had son-in-law Corey over for lunch and then Tom took him to the airport to fly back to Colorado. Parting from his family is very hard on him, but until a job opens up here, he has to hang on to his job there. We can all only hope it won't be too much longer.
This afternoon I took my camera out into the yard again. The colors have intensified since the last time.
There are still a few roses.
I discovered a bird's nest which had been well hidden in the kiwi vine.
The dogwoods are coloring up now.
The full moon maple show will soon be over.
Then I went for a long walk in the neighborhood and in the nearby park.
It's still green in the woods.
Tom prepared a planting area and got some hydrangeas planted. He worked harder than I did. But the walk was wonderful!
