November. Hello real fall, bye Indian Summer

Bloged in General Home Life by mark Thursday November 14, 2013

Just a few shots of fall beauty… least for me. We’ve been too busy on house projects to think about anything fun or exciting….but I still love the color here.

The garden is finally at rest…a LONG dry fall led to an extra deep layer of leaves being placed here as the winter blanket:

Not completely without food, MAC has been at attention more than once standing right here (and yes, caught 2x digging) for his favorite garden vegetable, the mighty carrots:

We have 2 apple trees…the Gravenstein ripens in August, this Granny Smith in October…so we get apples for 3 months… NO, we didn’t eat very many, and as these fall, deer and/or a coyote wanter through every day or two and pick up what’s on the ground:

The gravenstein’s left ON the tree are for birds and squirrels now. They’re pretty soft and rotten, but it sure doesn’t stop birds and squirrels from getting a meal here…

And in the back yard side, along the point the drop-off begins…. when we cut the maples 10 years ago leaving the high stumps to rot and eventually fill with bugs for woodpeckers, we ALSO planted a Pine Tree…. Now, 10 years later, it’s STILL small, and I’m wondering what happens first…does it catch up to the height of the stumps BEFORE they fall or not:

And, 20′ away, right off the deck we finally planted a SEQUOIA tree from the pot it’s been in for 10 years….and no, there’s nothing wrong with it. We bought it as soon as we heard that it IS: Deciduous….I’d never heard of that in a Sequoia, so we’ve been watching it’s beautiful light green needles turn brown every fall and drop….it’s a beautiful tree:

I’ve always loved that back part of the deck…looking at the birdbath, feeders, trees, and that slope:

And so much for November. WILL we get motivated to be ready for December?
