its been a great weekend...

this was on Saturday...
and yes...
that's my boy out there barefoot...
it was a warm day with a breeze...

I had him put leaves in the bicycle basket for fun...

before our mower guy mulched them all...
had him blow them in the beds for winter...

the yard looks like a spring yard now...
so green...

and the leaves were gone...

my hubby told me earlier in the week that Sunday would be the warmest day...
and since we were outside yesterday with just long sleeves and no coats...
I thought today would be simply wonderful...
well, he was wrong...
it was colder, much colder, but no wind...
so we raked and then decorated a bit...
corn stalks left in the field went here and in front of the house...

the sedum is a great fall color now...

cone flowers are seeding...

this is where we put the leaves that were on the porch, patio, drive way and walk...

those are those nasty asian beetles...
if you don't happen to have a problem with them...
they stink...

and that's what we did...
got the new white tarp on the back side of the porch...
and next weekend, we pull the linens and get them washed and put for winter...
other than that, I think we are done for the year...
even got the snow shovels on the porch by the front door...
so, what do you do this weekend?
