Today we mowed for the final time this year. Plus I did some yard maintenance. I’m exhausted (more than the usual) but I refuse to give in to it. Misu slept through it all in her window daybed.
It’s typical of this climate zone that the few flowers blooming outside right now are some roses, poppies, and coneflowers, though the stalwart marigolds have finally given up the ghost. My indoor Thanksgiving cactus is blooming. The monster holly out back is covered from top to bottom with bunches of large red berries. Most but not all trees have lost their leaves. It’s been freezing overnight, but still reaching the 60s during the day. Perfect for working outdoors.
