Autumn in the Garden

A View of our Lagoon
Such a gorgeous autumn day I decided to spend some time in my poor neglected garden.  I needed to weed out my herb/veggie bed so I can plant some winter veggies.  In the middle of it is my Rosemary bush and it smelled so good, need to bring some in to put on my pork roast tomorrow.  Pulled up some mint, it goes wild if I don't weed it down some.  The scented geranium is still smelling good, but it'll die if we don't move it to the greenhouse for the winter.
Stopped to take some photos around the yard, not many leaves falling yet, lots of acorns though.  We had a deer in the yard yesterday cleaning his antlers on one of our small trees, Mac tried to get a picture, but all you can see is the tree he's shaking.

  2. I'm trying to get my garden sorted out before the winter sets in too. I'm making progress but suspect that some of it will have to wait for Spring. I love the smell of rosemary, have a big old bush of it near my back door. It was a twig when I planted it many moons ago and it has survived some very hard winters so I obviously chose the right spot for it.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
