I love Fall as I know many of you do as well. It really is my favorite time of the year with the pumpkin picking, apple picking, pies, and of course the changing of the leaves. While out this morning with Dad I took a few pictures of the glorious color that is bursting out around us.
I needed some kindling wood for the bonfires that we will have this fall when the church youth groups come up for their annual hay rides so Dad and I headed out this morning to get the task done. There are lots and lots of dead pine trees that make for great starter wood and we had a few all picked out. I followed Dad down the road with the chain saw, which we discovered was very dull, but it didn't stop us.
I cannot tell a lie, I was just posing with the chainsaw, I'm not even safe with a butter knife let alone a chainsaw.......... How do you like the faded hunter orange jacket? Am I a fashionista or what?! snicker snort~~~~
We finished up in no time and have enough to keep us going for a good long time. We decided to ride up and see how the new road was coming along. It's just about finished, just a couple more days to go,
Hey, who said these big tough contractors don't have a soft side?! Look who was riding shotgun!!! I don't think she weighs 5 pounds!!
We came home and I thought I would snap a couple of pictures of some new cone flowers that I just set out a week or so ago. We had our yard man put the stones around the culvert as it was hard to mow around and he made me a little flower bed.
These are orange cone flowers, I was so excited when I found them at a nursery. (You can see that it doesn't take much to keep me happy!)
These are yellow and they aren't as hardy as the purples and pinks so we will see how they do over the winter.
