I wish I could smell them now, but I've caught a head cold. 'Caught'----what an odd term that is. Not to sound Andy Rooney-ish, but who sets out to 'catch' a cold? Have you ever seen anyone actually chase a person with a cold in the hopes of acquiring their germs? "Don't run away! I want that cold!!" Or has anyone ever tossed a cold to you so you could catch it? (Wow, I have been sitting around thinking way too long....it's scary here in my head.)
As odd at is sounds though, I'm ok with the cold, because at least I know what it is!
The weather here has been nice for the last two weeks. Let's see what else is going on around here while I've been fermenting; I'm curious:
The River Bed is going strong, mixed orange and yellow Inca Marigolds and Angustofolia Zinnias and somewhere in there, Victoria Salvia with a dash of purple ageratum.
Berberis thunbergii 'Golden Nugget' foliage almost as pretty as a flower.
I'm thinking about taking the 'Annual Holiday Family Photo' this weekend for the Christmas card...shhhhhhhhh........don't tell our sons, I can hear the groans already---but it would be nice to do it now before everything is frozen, including us, standing around trying to look warm.
The woods across the road-- I am having such a hard time believing the leaves are gone, but I will get a grip, I promise.
It was starting to get quite dark and also raining. The larch lit up nicely when I used a flash and it also illuminated the rain drops.
I took a picture of the rainbow but it is very faint:
So, I guess that's about it. Now head on over to Fertilizer Friday at Tootsie Time and see what other gardeners have blooming!
