*sigh*



*oooh*



*ahhh*



It's 73 degrees. A high today of 83 will usher in a cold front that might bring showers Wednesday afternoon. The rest of the week will be cooler. Wood will be split very soon.

The ooohhhh flowers made me sigh with delight. I already love your purple flowers, but those pink ones are just wonderful.

I mowed this morning, after doing some rearranging in our little screened porch off the kitchen. DH did some digging and root pulling out to enlarge a cement patio.

Our weather is nice too, so it feels great to get out and do things. No cold weather expected this far south. :-(

I'm looking forward to fixing dinner tonight, Tilapia fillets with kiwi ginger sauce.

I don't envy you having to clean up those dang acorns. Hope you are able to split some wood, which will be a nicer job if it's cool.

Holy freaking cow! Lookit all the acorns! Believe it or not I used to work at a place with lots of acorns. In fall I took home bags & bags of them, then used them for squirrel food all winter. LOL Kept them out of the birdfeeder. ;-D

I hate mum season at the store. That means pansies come next and they've already arrived too. But I do like the ones I kept. I pulled one out today in favor of a hibiscus someone gave me. It was a burnt orange color that really didn't wow me.

I expect very fat squirrels this winter.

Great photos. Good emotions, too! :)

Tom, that pale pink mum is a luscious color. Would you believe, I found a mum blooming this year exactly like your dark pink daisy-type mum...have no idea where it came from. I didn't plant it!
I am happy it found its way into my garden though.

Beautiful weather here too. We even got a couple of nice showers.

Oh ww! Look at that beautiful mum! Those sure are the largest acorns I've ever seen. I only have three bronze mums, left over from last year or year before. Maybe I should go down to HD and see if they have some the color of yours, or a purple. I'm a pink and purple gal!
Home Depot is only 1 mile from where we live, Lowe's is 10-12 miles away. That Lowe's never takes care of their plants well enough to suit me.
Only think I've ever bought at that Lowe's location are margigolds.
