It's been a long (dry) summer. The days have been gorgeous but after 4 months without rain we're ready for a change. Even though we've had some frosty days I've continued to water my summer plants. I found this little guy in the flower pot on the table outside our barn. He's been hanging out there for about a month now. I named him Alvin.
My hanging basket has continued to bloom although the hummingbirds no longer visit.
The daisies have started to come up (for a second time).
For the past four days every weather report in our area has predicted rain tonight. Sure enough today there are clouds we haven't seen for months forming on the horizon. I've taken advantage of the countdown of stormy weather.
