Not Yet




frog peaking out from the waterlily

I was reading a blog today of a fellow garden writer who said he was cutting back the water lilies in his pond this week.   When I ventured down to our pond this afternoon I found 5 frogs enjoying the sunshine in an around our water lilies so I said to myself that I would do that chore but not yet.

Made a dash around the yard tonight putting pots of annuals away in the garage.  Going to have a heavier frost tonight.  Seems too early for this.  I was hoping that we would have some flowers until after Thanksgiving on October 14.

Hi Val
I read that too about the pond maintenance. My frogs still want their leaves for sunning as well.
I could see the frost on the roofs this morning while out walking.

It does seem early for frost. Hope the froggies get to enjoy more sunshine on their lily pads. Cute photo.

Great pics of the froggies. It is too early for frost and I'm trying to hang on to my annuals as long as I can too. We had frost last week but there is none in the forecast this coming week.
Look how cute they are peeking out of the lily pads.. LOL It does seem early for frost, but then you are quite a ways further north than we are so guess Mother Nature is a bit cooler up that way.

Wonderful photos ! We can get either a light frost like this morning or a hard frost it depends as we live in a valley with a river running through it and the temps are always just ever so slight from higher ground . Thanks for sharing ! Have a good day !

Yup, I would have waited too.
They looks so comfy there!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
