Autumn......


The chokecherry tree starts off with green leaves in spring that turn to purple by late summer.  Then the red is the final color that it shows before they fall to the ground.


New buds and blooms are showing up on the carefree rose.  The blooms are a little wimpy because of the dry weather but the buds look great.

The predicted a freeze last night but it didn't happen.  I think 36 was our low temperature for the night. I still don't have the pilot lighted on the furnace and we are a little chilly.  I will go down the next couple of days and get it lighted.  I have an older furnace and sometimes the pilot goes out when the furnace isn't in use.  We have a couple of space heaters, electric that keeps the house somewhat warm.  It isn't warm enough but we will have a long heating season coming up soon.

I didn't get much of my outside work done yesterday but I will work on it the next few days.  We are to warm up outside so I can keep transplanting things.  I may wait to mow the yard until the leaves start to fall on the ground. I can mow some of them up rather than rake them.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my post today.

My roses have been really pretty now that it is cooler here. It sounds like winter is not far away for you. Love the Chokecherry Tree.

Red leaves. Red flowers. I just love red plants.

We're putting off the moment of having the heating on - as you say, it's going to be a long heating winter.
