It is fall and the colors are outstanding. I love the views from our dining room window. We live in an Oak-Hickory forest and in the fall the view just sparkles. This is the view of the lot next door to us. This summer I saw a deer walking down through the woods, heading to the lake for a drink. The bird activity is just wonderful. (Except for Great Backyard Bird Count day when they all hide)
The late afternoon sunlight shines through the forest, love the angle of the sun this time of year. On the windowsill you see a pair of binoculars....they are well used!!
Gardening is usually nicer in the fall here in South Carolina because the weather is better. Unfortunately for me, I found a nest of fire ants. We planted a new bed at the front gate of our housing area. Moving a little bit of mulch the next day to cover a bare spot of soil, I picked up a handful of ants. Note to self --wear your gloves and look before you pick up anything!!!
We made a trip to the doctor and I have meds to take care of getting my hand back to normal. Will have to wait a few more days to get back into my garden, don't want the blistered bites to pop and get worse.
The tree post from last week will be up probably tomorrow. Benedryl makes my head a little fuzzy so I haven't finished writing it. Be sure to check previous tree posts as fall pictures are added.
