Mums. I don't know why I didn't like them when I was younger. Now, well, I LOVE them. Especially in the rust coloration.
Glimpses of rust amidst the still green oak leaves.
Don't pansies just make you smile? I have always loved them. Their happy faces certainly herald fall with their bright smiles.
And then there are the leaves. Everywhere. Deciduous trees. Perfect for summer shade. Beautiful leaves to keep the rain and hail off the patio. Dreadful in the fall.
See our visitor? Guess what he's munching on? Aah come on.. I know you can do it!
When they aren't chasing each other around the trees... oh cats, were are you now?
They are stealing pecans. And being the smart rodents that they are, they empty the trees with the easy to shell pecans first. Leaving me the ones that take a sledge hammer to shell!!! Anyone want some pecans?? Better get here soon.
So from my metal scarecrow and all of us here on our patch of West Texas, we wish you warm days, cool nights, a few pecans for yourself and moments of sheer happy!
