My hostas are sure looking like fall.  This container has done so well this year.  Hoping the evergreen makes it all winter there.

Here you can see all the purple moss verbena blooms up the front walk…  Scooby our Great Dane….

And Charlie our newest tomcat.  He is very independent, but slowly making up to me.  All the animals learn the treaties come from the “Momma” around here!  Been busy around the lake.  We camped this weekend and I worked a couple days last week.  I sub at the girls schools and usually work 2-3 days per week.  I enjoy it and I have some flexibility with my days.  

The garden is very dry.  To be quite honest, I got busy with life as was not watering as much as I did.  I have some damage in a couple plants, hoping they come back.  We had been getting some rain, but it is horrible dry.  Blooms are holding on…but it really looks like fall here.

Hoping we have some good color in the leaves.  Fall is a favorite time for me out here with all the woods at our backdoor. 

Thanks so much for visiting….Brooke
