When will they arrive?



This, right now, is a time of the most perfect weather you can imagine. Not cold, not hot, mellow low in the sky sunshine, Apples ripening, deer eating them.
Every breath of air is fresh and fruity!
With so much fuss down yonder, hurricanes and all, when will folks flock to the pacific north west? 

Probably just in time for the volcanoes to blow, which they will.



Last of the flowers , I will bring the geraniums in for winter. They are so hearty , they even survive me!
We decided that we have been old and wimpy this summer, used air conditioner far too often. The bill was outrageous! We have also decided to get solar panels, for as much as it would cost to buy three designer bags in Paris, or a new car, or several trips to England- They will pay for themselves in seven years. The electric company will owe us.



All is well at the moment, and the moment is all we have, They say.

The back yard deer is the one that broke his leg at the beginning of spring, but there you go, He seems to have adjusted very well. 

Every afternoon he snoozes on the grass in the back.

Winter might not be his friend.
Ahhh mother nature, 
She can be harsh.

  1. Well, there is still the issue of nine months of grey scudding clouds, endless drizzling rain and no sun, as well as the raining sideways.

  3. Lovely flower pictures. Puts me in the mind of spring, not fall. I love geraniums but don't bring them in for the winter as I cannot tolerate the smell, for some reason.

    1. My husband is the same, does not tolerate the lovely fragrance of geraniums. They are very earthy, heavy, like tomato plants.

    1. I guess the solar panels are specially made, for cloudy places. Nearly our entire roof will be panels including the garage! There have been so many houses and businesses covered in panels lately, tax benefits!

  7. Well, Mr. Deer looks like he's doing pretty well for now! He certainly seems healthy. The solar panels sound like a good idea, but I had the same thought as Ellen. Glad they're designed to work where you are!

    1. In places like Arizona , one panel would suffice, but here we must cover our entire roof with panels to collect enough light.
