The chipmunks went to sleep with our very cold weather a few weeks ago – and this morning, they’re up and about, playful and happy – and stuffing their little cheeks. Took all these days of warm to wake them, and now tomorrow’s weather is heading the other direction. I sure hope it rains – even the honeysuckle – which can survive anything – is in distress.
And… there’s a small herd of three does wandering about – 2 mature, one a first year, that’s probably her mom she’s sauntering with.
The yard and the garden are ready for winter – the garage doors and front of the house are painted, the porch railing, too. Brian is going to be working on the driveway today. The patio stuff is still out – once the garage is organized, that’ll be put away. It’s fun to check things off my list.
And now I’ve got my Christmas list going… I’ll start thinking about the yard again in January / February, as I peruse those seed catalogs! It’s all fun!
