A Walk In The Yard














































I took a walk in the yard last evening. I wanted to make sure the heavy winds we've had the last 2 days didn't move or break anything. It won't be long now till Fall ends and the cooler temps arrive ~ I always hate to take the fountains and statues in for the winter. The winters here in Virginia have not been bad compared to those I lived with in Ohio. Snow lover that I am, I miss those winters. I loved it when the wind blew hard, the snow came down in large flakes, covering everything with a thick blanket of snow, and the trees became fairy tale trees ~ glistening and white. I took some pictures while walking around and thought I would post a few of the remnants of summer......

I too love snow--the type that swirls down like in a snow globe. I must admit being quite envious of that magnificent elephant ear plant; have bought them but I think it is just too cold and too short a season up here for them. We always saw them in New Orleans too....sigh....

XXOO!!!
