It is the first day of November and I have robins in my front yard, and blue birds going in and out of the bluebird house.
There have been 3 heavy frosts, so I have been told. Sure could not tell it here under this canopy of trees.
I have roses in bloom and buds getting ready to open. Probably 50 Zinnias still blooming,
Ajuga, lavender and some yellow daisies still with blooms. Now they are not prize blooms but they have not gone into the winter mode. A beautiful fern on my deck is still in all of its glory. City garden is the same but it is almost an hour South of my woods cottage.
A little surprised at this time of year. It has been such a busy year that I cannot remember what happened other years. My mind "says" that the frost wiped out everything.
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live a life which he imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours
