Leaving Soon

My girls are loving the wildflowers I have here as they get their fill for their long journey southbound

Making their way south will always be timed by nature and the things happening around them. They arrive at their winter homes when all the evil storms have died down along their flight path.

The last one has not even said goodbye and I miss them.

Soon the leaves will grab my attention for their color and beauty and since I do not rake I am not one to fret about them but my neighbor now she runs a leaf blower 5 hours a day. Mine fall and then I mow them and they breakdown perfectly for feeding my soil.

  1. I had to laugh at your leaf blower comment. I did buy a leaf blower this year, but I sure won’t be running it that long. I only want it to blow the leaves out of the boxwoods and out of one corner of the garden where they pile up high. We have neighbors that run them on the weekend, and it seems like when one stops, another one starts. πŸ™‚

    1. lol I run my rider along the edge blade up and blow what little I need moved that way πŸ™‚ 10 min. and I am done 3 acres and I let all the leaves feed what they fell from πŸ™‚

  2. Oh, I hate those leaf blowers! SO annoying, so I sympathize. And good for you to mow and replenish the soil with those leaves, your trees thank you. Your neighbor could learn a thing or two from you. πŸ˜‰
    My hummers left this weekend after enjoying the bounty of my garden. Always sad to see them go. Six months is a long wait for us.

    1. ZIt sure is soon the Bluebirds will return for their handouts πŸ™‚

      I am getting to my neighbor lol she is doing things different little by little πŸ™‚

      Have a great week!

  3. It always seems too early, doesn’t it! Hope you get loads of wonderful colour this autumn. Our housemartins have left for the winter and the yard seems so quiet without them.
