Thru The Backyard Gate.....













Snapped these in the backyard, last Friday...

Before leaving for the cottage...

It was the first and last sun in as many days...

Cottage was soooo windy and rainy...

No outside time at all...

 Some pictures of the Lake will explain why!

But for now...

My wee backyard is still looking very summery...

The pool will probably go to sleep this week...

No more beautiful aqua water to look at this year...

Oh well...

Not to worry...

time to look forward to other things...

Like Thanksgiving...can't believe it is already this weekend...are you ready??

Must get a few Autumn bits of decorating done... 






             Took this shot of the Moon last night...

               Couldn't even see it Friday night!

                  Hope you are all having a great restful Sunday...

                        I have Leek and Potato soup bubbling on the stove...

                                Expecting Miss V and her Mom shortly...

                     I have a big ham to go in the oven...scallopped potatoes...fresh carrots...

                                 Should do the trick on this cool October day...

                                            Time for some crochet...


                                       Enjoy the rest of your day...

                                            Cheers!  :o)

  2. Oh you will miss that pool for sure. Beautiful colours in your backyard though. The rain is sort of trying to stop here with the odd shower and sun peeking through the clouds. It rained hard most of the day but we sure needed it!

  11. So lovely to see around your garden! I can't believe that you are having thanksgiving already! Until I started reading yours and other Canadian blogs last year I didn't know that there was a separate Canadian Thanksgiving and now it is a year later, where has the time flown!! Hope you have a good one. xx
