Outdoor Wednesday Nov. 11th

It's Outdoor Wednesday at Susan's of "A Southern Daydreamer". Take a look at her beautiful blog and get the list of participants. http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/

Here is one of the few apples left on my three apple trees. I don't spray so I don't get many good ones for me but the animals all like them!!

Well, look at that, it's a rooster weather vane on top my cupola!!!!!!

There's my boy Rocky. It's been perfect weather this week!

The back of my house in the fall.

This is the north end of the house. You can see the cornice returns at the roofline. (A characteristic element in Greek Revival type of architecture from 1830-1860.) Hmmmm, I wonder if there was a window under the top right one at some time. Inside, there's a large closet there.)

Well, the sun is setting way too early now that Daylight Savings Time is over. I hate that it gets dark so early! I wish they'd keep Daylight Savings Time all year.
Well, that's outside on my little acre.
Have a good Wednesday.
