We're sure glad we have a young man with a healthy appetite living with us again. Corey is good to help eat up the leftovers; however, his bowl isn't usually this big.
About 3 days before the first snow storm, Dad burned the huge pile of prunings, clippings, trash, etc. that had been accumulating for 5 months in the barn yard. Wish all the little Yahoos had been here to run around the fire hollaring!
This is the most beautiful rose I raised all summer, though it actually fully bloomed after the first snow fall. It is from one of the least expensive rose bushes I ever bought and is also the hardiest. It also smells the best. Wish I knew its name. Grandma Murphy would have loved it!
This is what our yard looked like the day after I cut my last roses. It took about a week for the rose above to fully bloom, but it was a glorious end to summer. We also enjoyed the heavy snow storm, which was beautiful in its own way.
