Out early to cut down the asters. I'm back inside after doing just a few chores. Brrrrr....it's cold out there. Not knowing if we will have warm weather again...I am not taking any chances.I'll be out on sunny days to finish up.This is how the asters looked early on, but now they are brown and ready to be cut down. I have them in several places in the yard...so my lawn cart will be full .....again;
I used the hand truck to bring the birdbath into the garage for the winter. It was full of ice and leaves. Later on I'll clean it up with a bleach solution. The little birds were watching from the Ash tree. They will have to go elsewhere for water to drink. There's a pond in the back...so they will have to fly a little distance to get water now.
My mums aren't as pretty as they were in past years. Not quite as vibrant. In looking around the neighborhood, I think that I need a pop of color mixed in. My colors are mostly in the lavender, purple, rose colors. Maybe a pop of yellow would be nice.
Joe's surgery is scheduled for the day after Christmas. I guess our Christmas will be here at home and getting ready to go. What a disappointment. He's been in pain for 10 weeks and this is the first date that the Dr. would be available. He could have done it a couple of days before Christmas, but Joe figured after would be better. Well, as I said just the other day....we have to ease into things and just go with the flow. I didn't expect the water to be so choppy though.
I got my amaryllis bulb just yesterday in the mail. It is the biggest bulb that I have ever had. I think that I better plant it now...so we can enjoy it during Christmas. They take sometimes 8 weeks, but I hope that this one doesn't take that long. I'd hate to miss it's blooming.
Our tree in front is just about bare...and the maple is full of red color.So pretty right now.
Well, next on my agenda is to find out where they are giving flu shots. I missed out in early Oct. because of my cold. I sure want to get one, since I'll be in and out of Dr. offices and the hospital.
That's about it...not really in the mood to write anymore...just want to get outside stuff done.
