It has turned cold---34 degrees right now, this morning, and it's supposed to frost and freeze tonight. I wish I had a green house for these. They are so full and gorgeous that I hate to see them die.
The fern on the front porch did fairly well with getting a half day's sun. My flower beds look tired.
Or, maybe it's me that's tired---of watering that is.
Soon I will be digging these elephant ears up, and storing them for the winter in the garage. That will be a monumental task. I'll need a sharp knife, and a sharp spade. I will wait for a warmer day though.
Dahlias need to be dug up as well.
(Sorry for the blurry photo, but it's too cold to take another one.)
I have been so surprised at how well the zinnias did. So tall, and they did produce an abundance of flowers even with a little less sun than they needed. I should pick one more bouquet for my MIL.
I will miss my flowers, but I am tired of watering them all. I am always ready for a new season. I don't enjoy winter as much though. By spring I will be rarin' to go---I hope, that is.
My herbs, on the other hand need to come inside----my house is too small to house all these. I probably will just bring in the rosemary, parsley and thyme. Or maybe just the rosemary.
I only have this week's study left in Leviticus, and it has been incredibly rich. We will start a study of Deuteronomy in January---Boo-hoo, such a long time.
On another note, we caught 3 more mice, and I think they are all gone now--Yeah!
I think they are cute, but not in my house.
