    aww what a cute snowman!
    I remember years ago it started snowing the first week of October, and we had snow on the ground from then till April! I also remember a year where we had no snow on Christmas day, and by March everything was in bloom 2 month a head of time
    I wonder what this winter will be like!

    I love Fall nothing is prettier then the Hudson River Valley in fall. Painters for 100s of years traveled to paint it. The air has a fresh crispness you almost can feel the magic in the air. I am a lazy gardener I leave the fallen leafs to decompose over winter, I never cut back flowers but leve them so birds can eat the seeds in winter. I am becoming a big fan of dahlias. I never bothered with them because they are not winter hardy in my zone .Last spring I picked up some dahlia roots on clearance $1 a package. They impressed me so much with there nostop flowering I dug them up and saved over winter.

    Snow tires, cleaning eavestroughs, cooking plans, make sure the building is ready for winter, firewood on the deck.
    Favourite time of the year as well.

    I wish!
    I think Dahlias are addictive like Cannas!
    I decided to try them out this year, and loved them! I'm already going through catalogs envisioning the new ones I could buy next year! smrubhand.gif
    No other flower comes in so many different forms, sizes and colors! Dahlias are absolutely beautiful!

    I'm leaving some of the taller grasses up to camouflage the mess in our backyard from the ongoing garage construction. I trimmed back just enough of them today along one end so that when I want to put the net on next weekend or the weekend after I'll have an easier time. The other sides just have the shrubs around them, so those are low enough to cover easily with the net. No matter what, I have a lot of landscaping and lawn work to do next year once construction is over. The lawn got pretty torn up from the activity.

    So far not many leaves have made it into the pond even though they are dropping off the walnut tree already... but all it takes is one windy, rainy day and poof, they're all in the water clogging up the skimmer net.
