It Is Officially Wintertime

I switched to the flannel sheets!

And since today is a cold rainy day, I baked more rosemary bread.

I've stocked up on nuts to feed to the squirrels all winter long.

My potting table is covered in leaves.

My Japanese maples have turned but have yet to drop their leaves.

Remember all the pics I've shown of Teddy swimming in lakes. When there is the tiniest bit of drizzle she stands at the door and stares at it and won't step her paw outside. Go figure. Chow Chows are so weird!

Now that the leaves have fallen I get a glimpse of my statues.

The Fall Flowering Cherry has dropped all it's leaves.

Teddy checks the grounds.

Hey know I don't like getting my picture taken.

The Oak Leaf Hydrangeas are showing their best colors right now.

The flowers are drying on these hydrangeas.

A maple leaf lands right on top of my cement cabbage.

Not many leaves left to fall.

One of the few pumpkins not yet devoured by the squirrels.

I haven't been doing much thrifting but headed out the other day to check out some of the stores. High on a shelf surrounded by Christmas decorations, I spotted a beat up silver box with a sticker reading 29.95. I figured that was the price for an empty box. You can imagine how surprised I was when I opened the box and found this whole set of silver.

It is triple plate Roger's 1874 "Old Colony". The last thing I needed was a set of silver but at this price there was no way I was passing it up. Some of the serving pieces are nickel silver.

The pattern is a lovely garland and each piece is monogrammed with an "N".

I think these will go to my daughter!
