It Ain't Over Til Its Over

I think all touches of Summer are finally gone!

Here is the last Zinnia from the summer and the first Camellia blossom of the Fall and Winter:

We were still getting tomatoes and green peppers from the summer garden, but when we had our first real "frost and freeze warning" last week, my hubby went outside and picked the rest of them. There were many green tomatoes which will ripen eventually. I will either use the green peppers fresh or freeze them.

Yesterday's wind and rain storm have blown almost all the leaves, pine straw and STICKS from our trees. The yard is a carpet of nature!

So, yes, I think summer is really over in my neck of the woods.

That's the difference between living in the South and living in the Northeast! Everything here is pretty much dead right now.

Those flowers are absolutely gorgeous by the way.

Oh,thanks for the reminder! I need to get the rest of ours off too. We have a few more tomatoes growing.

Are you getting hammered tonight? We lost our power.

Hi Debbie,
Summer isn't over in Texas.It is still at least 75 here. I thought of you today. I spent all week putting off a chore and today I made up my mind to get it done. It took me 10 minutes to complete and a week to put if off. LOL

She's Here! Victoria!

Its been an exciting week! Victoria arrived on Monday and I kept her brother for 3 days. Only bad thing is that today I am home from work ...
