Garden Tuesday

In the rare, perfect autumn day, I relish the sight of an apple tree with spots of ripe, red fruit abounding.
The maples are sporting new colors these days.

The sky is a perfect montage of shades of stunning azure.

And yet another hidden advantage of living in an old house: a weather vane and lightning rod combination.

Lovely autumnal trees in your yard, the maple is gorgeous.

(Who will you "volunteer" to pick the apples for you?)

I "heart" Garden Tuesday:)

I haven't been home to PA in two weeks. I hope the plants I brought in aren't too thirsty...

That weather vane looks mighty high. There are quite a few where I live in PA but I don't think they are as tall.

Thanks for sharing your pics, Marjie. Ah autumn...

Hey Thor! My foodables bowl is up high so that I don't have to work as hard, but momma kind of likes that water bowl because she only fills it halfway and that helps keep me from flinging my slobbers too far. I think a raised one would be great. That would give me a great spray radius.

Slobbers,
Mango
