Blazing Sunset

Pin It

Taken from the back deck two nights ago, this is my entry for this week's Skywatch Friday where there are so many beautiful, breathtaking skies to see, it boggles the mind. Do check it out.

Autumn in My Garden 2009 - Red Japanese Maple Leaves

Pin It
Red Japanese Maple with flash, early evening

It's been a short autumn compared to most here on the north coast. I've a feeling we may be in for a long winter.

Updates on my garden and my just-beginning-to-lay chickens coming soon.

Autumn in My Garden 2009 - Fog Laden Web

Pin It

Sometimes drippy, foggy mornings reveal delightful surprises that help me forget how woefully lacking is our usual warm and sunny late autumn weather.

Autumn in My Garden 2009: Millipedes

Pin It

I found this millipede while weeding in the garden.
It curled up into a tight little ball about the size of a nickel
and wouldn't come out for the longest time.


When it finally unrolled itself,
I barely had time to take a few photos before

it slipped away out of sight.

Autumn in My Garden 2009: Golden Brown Caterpillar

Pin It

Gently munching away on a strawberry leaf, this is one

very small caterpillar.
