Going to Seed

Going to Seed 1

It looks like Fall is over here in my neck of the woods everything is in winter mode and doing it annual thing of going to seed to preserve it’s kind, nature sure know how to get it right. We no longer have leaves on the trees, after the rain and with the extreme cold temperatures they were on the ground over night.

We didn’t have a very pretty Fall here this year, the colors weren’t their normal vibrant hue I look forward to seeing, I believe it has something to do with the amount of rainfall you get earlier in the year that determines how colorful the leaves will be. We are already being blessed with that cold, icy stuff called snow. I love Michigan and our season changes but this year I am behind schedule and still haven’t got the garden weeded out. All the flowers are still standing like little brown soldiers in a row, it’s not a pretty sight, but for some reason I have so many other things on my to do list that the yard has been put on the back burner.

This week hubby has been working on lowering all our exterior doors, and I have been his help crew. I’ll be glad when that project is over, I hate all the dust it’s creating not to mention it is 30 degrees here and he has the doors out of the house. I will be back next week to show you that project. It is also opening day of gun season for deer here in Michigan, my boys went north hunting and my hubby is at our place hunting. Hope they bring home the big buck this year.
