Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer and Trooper.
Fall may be here but wow the weather is so nice. We had frosty, freezy over the weekend, but it has gotten nice these past few days. Highs up in the 70's. Mum says they won't last long, so we better enjoy them while we can.
Mum came home last night and got the grass eater monster our, she worked on the grass but she also chewing up all the leaves. A few trees, the ash, are done dropping their leaves. So that is what you see on the ground.
So here are the after pictures. Mum tries to chew up as many leaves as she can, that send the nutrients back into the ground for the grass and trees.
Here you can see our little ash tree out in front, no more leaves. But you can see that the other trees, a maple on the left, locust on the right, still have lots of leaves on them.
Plus tonight is the last time the sun will set at or after 6 PM until next year and then not until the hour gets hidden in the clock in March! The above pic was taken just a little bit past 6 last night.
Mum is bummed that the days are getting shorter. Right now she is getting up in the dark, 10 more days then the clocks flip the hour. It will be daylight when she gets up, but then gets to drive home in the dark.
That is all from the garden this week. Love Virginger, Glimmer and Trooper.
