'Tis the Season....

Leaf Season.

There is a lot of beautiful fall color here, this year.
Maybe it's because of the early cold weather we've had.

This Oak is out by the Veggie Garden.
The sun through the leaves yesterday, made me grab my
camera and make this my 
365 Project Photo of the Day.

I think it's a Spanish Oak.

Then, there's this.

I love the trees, but.....

Keep in mind....I swept these up yesterday...twice.
Looks like it'll be twice today, too.

I have to do that, so the inside of the house doesn't look like this.
And, the driveway is just as bad.

half a pile
We're past the 'seed stage'.  So, I can put these in the flower beds, for mulch.

Some 'people' just like to lay around,
watching other people do all the work.

Happy Gardening...

November Foliage Follow-Up.....

Here we are in the MIDDLE of 

Wow....time is flying by.

Time to join 
Pam at Digging,
for Foliage Follow-Up.

It's pretty much the same old, same old here.
Agaves, yucca, cactus....

We did get a couple new Mediterranean Palms,
and got them planted before the Arctic Blast.
(one in front bed, just right of right side tree)

And, I moved some Red Yucca from beside that Rosemary,
to fill in where the deer had made a mess of the
Color Guard Yucca.

I potted up two of them for the Fenced Yard, and caged the third one in the Back Bed.

They had chomped and pulled them up, over & over.
They did a job on them....grrrrr.

It looks better now.
And, since the deer have left that Red Yucca alone so far,
maybe we're safe.
For a while.....

At least they haven't eaten the metal Prickly Pear.

They did try to eat the 'silk' chrysanthemums on the front porch.

Yes folks, I've resorted to FAKE flowers on the porch.
And, the deer even tried them.

If you want to see more Foliage Follow-Up,
be sure to visit Pam.

Happy Gardening...
