The Last of the Fall Colour...

On the weekend, while out in the garden, I shot these images of the last bit of colour left in the yard.  Although most of the leaves have fallen, and those still clinging to the trees are mostly a sad brown, there is still a bit of pretty colour to be found in a couple of spots in the garden.  I took these rather quickly, with my iPhone, and unfortunately the focus is not the best.  I do love those wonderful berries on the euonymus .  The colour and shape is so interesting.  The wine/green leaves are from my fragrant snowball bush...it smells divine when it's in bloom in the spring!  And the barberry bush is rapidly loosing it's leaves, but those still on the bush are a wonderful variegated pink/burgundy colour.

I thought you might enjoy an update on Dime too.  He's doing great and he's never too far from Casey!  He is such a clever little fellow, learning so much everyday. Happily, at 12 wks he's reliably housebroken (actually was a week ago already!) and we haven't had an accident in the house since his second week with us.














"Here are some of the commands I know...okay, I'm just kidding about that last one, but a puppy can dream can't he?"

  8. The pictures of Dime and of Dime and Casey with their stuffed animals are so sweet! It takes special people to foster a dog...to raise a puppy knowing he is eventually going to belong to someone else.

    1. Thank you. It will be hard to see him go, but on the other hand he'll be doing such a wonderfully important job that we will be so proud of him...that will make it easier, knowing he is giving someone else the gift of independence!
