Who, What, Where, Now!
Out like a Lamb Parade
What season is it anyway?
Snow was scrunching under my feet as I moved fallen trees limbs from my formerly moving-into fall landscape. Alas, my asters won't bloom this season, the peppers never got more than pinkie-sized and the pumpkins are as big as they'll ever be. And I can see way more of my neighbor's yard than before the weird, unseasonable blizzard took down most of their large front yard tree on Monday. While we plot our Halloween costumes, and begin to look towards recipes that include squash, we have plenty of critters to keep our senses amused.
