It’s that time again…

in Northern Michigan.

to fall.

It’s that time of year to cut back and clean up.


That includes cutting back the ever producing Green Zebras and finishing them off. We were totally shocked and surprised that it stood up to the winds and has kept on producing.

Brrr….  the winds are blowing out of the northwest with strong gusts.  It’s not quite 50° and hard to get enough layers on.

We persevere.  The deck has been cleared, the herbs harvested, the hostas and grasses have been cut back.  The refrigerator has been cleaned out and the spare beds covered like ghosts.

After a long hard day of house and never ending yard work we sit back and reflect (bundled in blankets) on what a wonderful summer it has been.  It really is the most beautiful place in America.

It’s beginning to look like a winter sky out there.

    Thanks, Penny!
    If we weren’t such hard workers we’d have more time to play… Maybe next year?!!


Talk to me people. I get tired of talking to myself!
