Garden Tuesday: Leaves Hanging On

Well, despite the fact that there are a bucketload of leaves down, and all of them have migrated to right outside my garage door, some are still hanging on.  I really like this dogwood which just isn't going to give up.

 The burning bushes in our walled garden are losing the battle, but very gracefully.

Shannon and Chris were visiting a couple of weekends back, at the same time Jeff was here.  Of course, talk turned to Thanksgiving.  Part of the conversation:

Chris: In the next few years, there will get to be more of us, and we will need 3 turkeys.  I vote that we deep fry one of them:

Jeff:  Oh, yeah!  I'm with you there.

Dearly Beloved: Guys, that's how people set their porches and houses on fire.

Chris: Oh, don't worry.

Jeff: We'll do it outside.

Chris: I'm an engineer.  I will engineer this project.  It'll be great.

And so begins the Thanksgiving planning.  Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Amazing how they always pile up in front of garage doors.

All of our leaves have fallen... your Dogwood is holding on!

Thanksgiving at your house is going to keep getting bigger and bigger. Can't wait to see the photos.

We've got a few hanging on still, but most have come down...
