I'm having a hard time believing it's November already.
This weekend the clocks move back an hour
and the days will get even shorter!!
Here at the Sall farm, we have difficulties
making it through 4 months without sunshine
and without sticking our hands in the dirt.
A couple of spindly house plants just doesn't cut it!!
I guess it's the price we pay for living in the great state of South Dakota.
Although, it's been a little hard to grow anything outdoors,
we've been having frosty mornings here since Oct. 2nd.
even the concrete statue in the garden is hoping for a warm blanket.
But, we can reminisce and look back at the photos we have of
the garden and all it's bounty....
What a great year for cucumbers!!
The flowers were all gorgeous thanks to my little helper, Domino!
I miss those warm sunny days already and would give anything
to be able to go out and pull some weeds around the dill.
(never thought I'd say that again!)
Hmmm, back to November,
enjoy the rest..
let my back heal...
watch the starlings feast on the cedar berries
(through my kitchen window).
for, all that is flourishing right now, are the evergreens.
I'll have to start talking to my Christmas cactus,
reminding it what month it is.
and as soon as I can buy some new Poinsettias
MAYBE I can coax this mixture....
back to it's original state
which was this last December....
I better go find the fertilizer!!
Have a fantastic Friday!!
Now check out some more flowers at Tootsies site.....
