|Finally my morning glory is putting out some flowers ..|
Let's see .. oh wait, we washed the RV!
We also treated the roof with a conditioner. Something we should (and have done) do every spring and fall, but there was so much going on this spring that we just didn't have the time.
So, although a little early, we're actually late .. oh, well.
We're looking nice and shiny now though, and definitely a lot 'white'-er, and the next thing we'll be doing is cleaning and restoring/renewing some of the caulking around the roof and windows.
Some of the white paint of the slides, and green paint all around the bottom, need a little touch up as well. All to get us ready for fall!
Which is around the corner of course. Fall, I mean. The nights are finally getting a little cooler and some of the Liquid Amber trees are starting to 'turn':
And the large flock of Red Robins that are hanging out in our yard, are very happily munching away on the bright orange berries of the Mountain Ash trees ..
One of our neighbors has been growing these large green pumpkins in the front yard. I always find it interesting that these plants show fully grown fruit and flowers on the same plant at the same time ..
On one of my morning walks I was happy to come across this pretty Quail. I haven't seen any around here so far ..
Also, for some 'birds of another feather' .. this little flock of chickens ..
My vegetable garden is pretty much done producing. I picked the last of the zucchinis and tomatoes (who were ripening really weird, with a still hard top and completely soggy bottom?) and a handful of small bell-peppers.
So far, I'm not too impressed of how things have been growing. Most of it was small or stunted or not producing at all, like every single one of the beans I sowed ..
I don't know if I'm going to do this again next year?
The raspberries in Doug's yard (obviously a late variety) are ripening nicely though!
They'll be a nice thing to have in the coming winter!
Like I said, the nights, and days as well, are starting to get a little cooler now (Yes!) and Sunday it even rained almost all day (gasp!) so I thought it was a good time to start a new puzzle.
It's one of the three my mom send me for my birthday. This one's a painting by Renoir and a lot more difficult than any of the Wysocki's I usually make.
|But I do like the challenge, and it's very pretty!|
