A Busy Day...

Today we started fall clean-up in our back yard.  What a day!  We have many bushes that needed to be trimmed.  Now we have many, many limbs on the ground that need to be raked and picked up.  The work will continue tomorrow.

Below are pictures I snapped of the day.  I love how a good many of our plants and bushes continue to show
us their color and blooms.

A good looking Hibiscus bloom!

For my friend, Pink Flamingo.  Yes your Bougainvillea made the cross country trip with me.

I love this feeder.  I purchased it at The Christmas Tree Shop.  The birds
seem interested and stop and peck for a minute or two.  But someone always
ruins their feeding time.

Of course, Chui and Oliver helped us with all the yard work.

Yes, the leaves are stuck to Oliver's beard!
 Love this baby so much!!

This is what he does all the time when I walk up to him.

Now I realize this is an act of submission but I also think he is lazy and wants to be held.  
Which I do!

Chui, on the other hand, expects me to roll over and submit to him.
He reminds me daily that he comes from a long line of Chinese Royalty!

We had a wonderful day.

Those little fellows are so cute. Looks like you got a lot accomplished in the garden...maybe it was because of the "helpers". (-:

Beautiful yards take so much work, don't they. I spent two hours, yesterday, just working on front yard leaves! I think the dogs run the show :)

Now THAT's the kind of wonderful I am looking forward to having someday. :) I was so happy to see "Bo" in your pics... looking quite happy to have been loved enough to be treated to a cross-country trip and settled in such a beautiful acre. xoxo
