Veterans Day

Why does this have anything to do with Gardening? Well if it were not for the Veterans that have fought for our Freedom, we would not have the privilege to garden as we want. Freedom is not free. I love our Country. I desend from a long line of Veterans in my family, going all the way back to the American Revolution. Yes, I am a proud member of the D.A.R. I am proud to be an AMERICAN!!!!! Today I just want to say how proud I am of all the men and woman who continue to serve our country and keep us all safe here at home. Thank You!!!!! God Bless You!!!!

Hanging On

This apple seems to be holding out for a frost. Normally we have a frost before the 15th of November. The fall weather has been pretty crazy here. We have had 80+ daytime temperatures and 38-40 temperatures at night. I am enjoying it while it lasts, because I know soon it will be raining and cold everyday. Can you believe it's only two weeks until Thanksgiving? Where has this year gone?

What can you do with a penny?

I wondered that many times over the years. Well one day I was on Garden Web and someone had covered a bowling ball with pennies. It was so awesome!!!!! I decided to round up a few pennies and make one too. I think I actually used around 6 dollars worth. I did two layers of pennies on my ball. Here is what it looks like...

Recycled 4 Garden Art

I am rusty and twisted and I was recently released from a dark warm place. Now I hang free and blow in the wind! Can you guess where I came from?
The "thing" is from the inside of a water heater! Did you guess correctly? (-:

Skatin' Into November

Hard to believe it's already November. This year is almost over. Two more weeks and I will have a week off from work! Yahoo!!! This time of year is always busy at school. It is also busy in the yard. I have been trying to keep the leaves cleaned up every week. It's a worthless job because almost before I finish mowing the lawn there are new leaves falling to replace the ones I just sucked up in the lawnmower. But for that little bit of time the grass is all pretty and clean(-: Soon the rain will come and I won't be getting out in the yard as much. I will miss that. The temperature has been perfect for working in the yard this week, 80+ degrees. I have a ton of things to get done before the winter arrives. Hopefully when I am off on vacation I can do everything I want to do. I will be counting the days until then.(-:
