Peaceful showers this morning and predicted for the coming week
 are so welcome along with cooler days.
Grass seed has been sown and straw spread where there was once a flower bed.
Twice  this morning have chased  2 turkeys away as they try to eat grass seed.
I clap my hands or sound the hand held emergency alarm.
They may be the ones who ate all my turnip green plants as they were emerging.
Lately, Callie just sits and watches :)
She use to chase them away....

You did not bloom all summer but now you are giving me a gift of one bloom
on this  October day :).  I accept your gift and pleased you are still able to bloom.

This one
enjoying the rain....

A morning of looking for lost phone
finally found it
in my truck.

Calling home number with cell phone
it was ringing in truck and could not locate
under the seat.  Finally with flashlight found
it among wires and lodged under where seat
goes back and forth.
Remember this is an old truck :)

Enough shared on the first day of this new Month...

Hate when I lose something important! Of course, it would be someplace that you could not ear the ring!! Your yard does look lovely. I keep trying to get turkeys...and you find them digging up your lawn!

Tabor, if the turkeys arrive - you cannot get rid of them.
They stand in my gravel drive - a dozen of them. Squirrels lounge
on the railing around the deck - do not like it...
Guess they think this is their home
and of course they are right.
I am the invited guest of 6 years..
Rebecca, this one is lately misplacing much..

meant to say uninvited guest :)
I arrived 6 years ago
and did not ask..

I can appreciate your turning gardens back into non-work areas. When I moved here, I kept reminding myself not to get carried away and dig up the whole front lawn. So glad now, that I only put in a small perennial garden in front of the house. Are those new flags!

I just loved reading this. Am awfully fond of turkeys, though. :<)
