Sunday is supposed to be the "day of rest"
and God knows, I surely need it.
But today my sister and her husband are coming
to help me move wood. I had three dead trees
cut down this week, to the tune of $1000.I don't have a wood-burning fireplace,
so they will be burning the wood once it is seasoned.
I'd certainly rather have spent the money on new dishes,
but oh well ~ that's life.
This is the wild cherry tree that unfortunately was
full of carpenter ants.
Then there are the two maple trees that were cut down
in the back of the yard by my green house. I cleaned out
this overgrown area so we could stack the wood back there.
And then there is the greenhouse window they broke
while bringing down the trees.
My back yard is full of honeysuckle trees
which have yet to turn color, but are full
of berries that the birds will soon be
These are the dracaena marginatas and asparagus ferns I
took from the urns in the front yard. They need
to move to the greenhouse until it gets too cold and then
they'll come in the house for the winter.
Moving around to the front of the house is my beautiful
pyracantha bush with it's vivid orange berries.
I use the berries in various ways to decorate
around the yard and in the house.
And last of all, while we're out front, is my fall porch
which is sporting it's true colors today.
Can you tell I'm an Ohio State fan :)
