We are still getting ready for the fall/winter season. Another bird house went up for our feathered friends. I painted it the dark red that I love so much. I say, if you have a color you love, share it! In this case, I'm sharing it with the birds.
It's next to the other birdhouse that is just stained. I like the look of it but I think I like the red one better, I wonder which one the birds will like??
The outside summer decorations are put away. The vines around the arbor are cut back to the ground. This makes the back yard look so bare. However the deck chairs are still up for those few moments when the sun still comes out and warms us up. They will be down soon however.
The fire place is clean and ready to light up. I do admit that I love a fire in the evening. The mantle is all set and welcoming (well I think it's welcoming at least). The dogs have a great stay but they were not cleaned, just told to get ready for their photo to be taken. Becke is 13 1/2 (the lab) and August is 2 (Not the lab - really he's a Chinese Crested, Powder Puff)
While working in the yard the other day, Hubby found this huge catapilla. It was chewing on our lialac bush. No idea what it was, but we found it a new home.
The double windows are coming down and the house if getting "buttoned up". How about you? My DIL told me once that her fall cleaning consists of moving the sweaters from the back of the closet to the front and putting out the pumpkin place mats. Our fall readiness list is a bit longer....then again, she lives in San Diego!
