Grab a pot of tea and a bag of cookies...

we are having our last 70 degree day before the temps drop down in the 50s...
and there is a warm breeze blowing...
I took over 50 photos...
but I cut it back to these...
this is my neighbor's pear tree...
and Doug and I went for a walk and then came back home and I took photos while he grabbed a rake and cleaned up...
so just enjoy the sunshine and the shadows and one of the last of our gorgeous fall days on the prairie...
Doug and Moses...
Doofus...
Daphne sniffing around...
I actually thought she was going to jump in them...
he put the leaves in the flower beds for me...
and here they will sit  until we rake them off in the spring...
mums and birdbath...
turned over...
freshly raked yard...
I love it when it looks so neat and ready for winter...
no more bon fires...
we are in a code red or something red...
no fires, no burning leaves...
too dry...
we have many plans for next spring...
Doug had this idea to put the rail road ties across here about 4 foot from the front of the house, dig that out and pour concrete between the house and ties so I can get my wheel chair across here...
we have to go down the walk, out in the road and back down the side yard to get me there now...
this is Doofus in the leaf pile under the bench...
this is my mirrored star...
it's my Christmas present from Rebecca...
we exchanged our presents the 1st of November...
it is huge and it is awesome!
I hope you get to get outside these last few days that we have left...
and for the ones who already have snow...
I am so glad that you got to come and play in my yard on this warm and sunny day...
hugs- Tete

Lovely tour of your yard, Tete. That pear tree is beautiful...I see it is still holding its leaves. I think that sidewalk would be a great idea...It would make you more mobile and that would make you feel a bit freer. Doofus looks quite content there in his pile of leaves. And...oh...I LOVE your star-It is gorgeous. And it looks BIG! Hugs- Diana

It was lovely visiting with you today, Tete! We're into rain and cold season here in Vancouver, so it was nice to vicariously share your gentle warm day. I enjoyed your photos..love that pear tree,and your gorgeous star.

I see you indulge your furry friends as much as we do ours..LOL. Have a great weekend...

Hi Tete-It was a beautiful day here too! Perfect sun and temp. I didn't get outside too much, though. Had a lot to do inside, but I did enjoy yesterday outside which was just as nice. Your yard looks beautiful, and so do your little critters!
hugs,
gail
p.s. love the star!

We have nice last few days of good weather. Up to 60's here in WNY. Went out for dinner with my folks. Haven't had anything good in a while. Glad to feel that warmth on us.
Have a good weekend,
Nancy

Hi Tete, love your pictures. Your furry friends are just precious. You all are working hard on fall clean up. It never ends does it? I LOVE your white metal glider. I want one so badly, an old one. My Grandma had one on her front porch for years. Yours looks great and in great shape :)
