looking at the whole area from a distance makes one think that it is snow
the woods is a mixture of dry, green , and blooming native plants
One particular flowering plant is so pretty. It is almost like baby's breath that is used in bouquets..........but in a cheery yellow.
It makes a beautiful accompaniment with the sunflowers that are also in bloom.
Also during this time of year.....the fog settles and envelopes the house.......
and lingers even after the sun has risen in the morning.
October is also the time that I search for new dishes and desserts to serve on my holiday table.
This is a wonderful pie recipe
Cranberry Cheese Crumb Pie
You can get the recipe on my cooking blog
The cat " Hobo" has still called our place " home" and I have changed his name to
The nights are getting chilly and the coyotes are getting closer in their search for food.
I have been worried about this tough old cat's safety.
There is a large hatching/brooding crate in my chicken house, full of fresh hay...
and unoccupied. During the cold winter days, the chicken house also has heating lamps to keep the chickens warm
I decided that I would put Homer out in the crate over night for his protection.
I was amazed at how easily he has accepted this " night time jail"
As long as he has a big bowl of food......he is quite content and is glad to see me each morning when I open the door and let him out.
So what has October brought your way?
I would love to hear.
