Thank you friends for listening to my whining and worrying, then leaving me such sweet and helpful comments. I appreciate you so much. Especially, knowing there are many folks out there on medications they had rather not be taking, but have no choice. Still gotta make that hard decision of whether or not to take the Prolia shot. :(
Poppy says, "take the shot"! Poppy also said, "Mel, you've got to stop working around here like you are twenty years old. Stop trying to build a wall, Mrs. Trump"!
Actually, he was referring to this little natural fence I've been working on. You see, I got the idea from Happyone, you can see her blog here. Her natural fence is wonderful!
This area slopes down hill, so the fence is a little taller than it looks in the picture...
and in the woods, I came upon this...
Why, I see a teeny tiny table...
a teeny tiny table set with four soup bowls? Aww, the little soup maker ran away, losing some of her corn. I must have frightened them away.
This little mushroom table was just so cute. I couldn't resist adding a few dishes and dropping a little corn from my feed bucket.
Oh, when I was a little girl, I could spend the day sitting on the ground in the fallen leaves, up against the sunny side of the house where the cold wind couldn't hit me, playing with acorns and stick dolls. There was nothing like those golden fall days and I was perfectly content to play there alone.
It's windy and turning cold here, but it's pretty. All the colored leaves are falling today. Looks like they got together and planned it this way.
Also, looks like this will be the last of the pink (Willie) til next spring...
all the pink petals covering the ground were almost as pretty as the flowers.
and one sweet little rose...
It's pretty scary to think about leaf raking time, and it is now upon us. Will I even know where to begin? Maybe we will simply have lots more 'natural' areas in the yard and leave the leaves alone. :)
Better get busy.
