...we noticed that many of the leaves on our red sunset maples had turned while we were away.
And then we both saw it...
...in the middle of the long row of trees lay the casualty of the previous night's storm. No...not again! We lost one last October in a windstorm and went to great lengths to try to replace it with one of similar size.
Now here we are once more...in the market for a red sunset maple...height about 18 feet. Soon we will own shares in the garden shop!
As for the grapes...they withstood the wind and the birds...and were awaiting my return. There's nothing like eating grapes right off the vine.
We were nicely unpacked from our trip, when our first and only 'treaters' arrived. I was waiting...since they are my first trick-or-treaters each and every year on October 31st.
...and so we joined them there. Ranen was the perfect little ladybug when we arrived...but we rather spoiled her costume by bringing her a souvenir from Disneyland...which she insisted she wear rather than her ladybug antennae. Maelyn was the cutest little chick...and had the chick noises down pat. Even the big kids got in on the fun...as they took the munchkins 'trick-or-treating' in the nieghbourhood. Lisa found an appropriate costume...and never strayed too far from her chair. She is our 'lady-in-waiting'...and one of these days, I will have an announcement to share.
As for today...where was I? It's time to get back in the groove.
Have a great Monday...
