What a Beautiful Fall Day!!

Hi Everyone,

I know you've heard this before, but I have to say it again... I LOVE FALL!  What a beautiful day it's been here.  Beautiful blue skies, puffy clouds, warm sun, cool air.  I just love it.  The leaves on the trees are turning more and more everyday.  My husband and I were working outside most of the day cleaning up the yard; putting all the garden stuff away to get ready for winter (sshhhh, I don't like that word!).  Here's a couple of pictures I'd like to share.

Just look at that sky; isn't it beautiful!?  This is our [still little] Dogwood tree surrounded by our mum garden.
Here's a new mum we just picked up for this season (we got 2 of them).  Isn't that a beautiful color?  I want to plant that in my mum garden so that next year, it will have a new color!
That's my hubby, taking a break.  But that's okay; he deserves it.  He works very hard and does a good job!
A silly flag we have hanging at the back entrance to our house  Look at that crazy squirrel hanging there!!
JUST KIDDING...It's not real.  Looks pretty real, though, doesn't it?!


That's Henry, he's our yard squirrel.  He's been around for a couple of years now, and my husband got him to come up and take peanuts out of his hand.  It's really something.  Every day, Henry usually greets my husband at the garage as he leaves in the morning or comes home at night.

Well, hope you liked my pictures!!  And hope you're having a beautiful day too!!  Enjoy this wonderful weather while you can!  And thanks for stopping by!
