A Pottering Day

We were gifted with yet, another perfect Autumn day.
Blue skies and sunshine.

A day spent pottering about the garden, stacking plant pots, arranging shelves in the potting shed, dipping fallen-leaves from the pond.

The geese flew south overhead.
Squirrels busily transported their overwinter stash to secret hiding places.
Birds feathered their nests.
Wild turkeys led their flock to the nightly roost.

Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.

Jo , It's been a chilly autumn day here also. It was cold this morning early..brrr. But that is so much better than the blistering heat we had all summer. Lots going on at your place. I am taking a crafting break :):) Smiles, to you, Susie

At last, no rain but sun today, reading my new gardening book on the porch. What a beautiful group of turkeys you have and your pottingshed almost looks too clean for a pottingshed. (Haha)

Hi Jo, Isn't it fun to move from one season to the next? Today (Monday)--it is cold and wet here on the Plateau. We have had a fire in the fireplace now for two straight days... Brrrrrr.. BUT--I love it.

Love your turkeys.
