Outside Today

I'm taking advantage of this wonderful stretch of warm weather we're having and spent most all of today outside.

This morning was crisp but warmed up into the 70s pretty quick.

 See Dexter racing toward me at 50mph!!

 My herb garden has done really well this year.  I have to cut some to hang and dry or freeze.
I spent most of the morning cleaning up my front gardens and planting the mums that I've gotten.

That's little Pepsi.

One of my daily jobs in the fall is sweeping off the deck.  The acorns are falling like crazy right now.  I've been hit by them several times.
My daughter-in-law and grandkids will come to gather them up to take to feed the herd of deer that come to their yard  They are all over the grass.  It's getting hard to walk.
They are from these huge red oak trees.

Here is the "birth of a buckeye"!
You don't want to get hit by one of these when they fall.  The outer shell has spikes on it and they're heavy!!

Guess what another one of my daily jobs is?
I'll give you a hint.
I have two dogs.
And one is a St. Bernard!
Here's another hint:

That's all for now!

Hope you're having great weather too.
