Lilacs and other smelly Things

Working in the Hummingbird (cottage 6) yesterday, I was enveloped by the scent of the lilac blossoms.  Heavenly.

Mother Earth and her Amazing Creatures

This morning Mike left to go to work – he wasn’t gone long though.   He backed up and told me to grab the camera!!

Oh dear, the things you miss when sitting in the kitchen, slurping hot coffee and gawking at the TV –  it was a real Autumn morning complete with fog, mist, colorful falling leaves and some sun peeking through the haze.  And everywhere I looked, there were these amazing, freshly spun miracles

the grass was dotted with these little “cotton candy”  webs

It seems that all of our trees grew more this year than any other year before.   Suddenly I see this huge Maple tree that I cannot remember ever seeing before.  The Cherry trees along the property line have doubled in size since last year and our  Apple trees are actually bearing fruit.  Not good tasting at all but pretty to look at apples.   My Peach tree, however, is still dead  😦
