Sorry about the video

I don't think the video I tried to put here works ....oh well. It really was great!!
On gardening....this year our garden is only about 1/3rd the size it usually is. But we are still getting a few goodies from the smaller garden. Our fruit has been great this year. The plums not so good but we have had a bumper crop of peaches. Our first one to ripen it's peaches is a red peach and is the best tasting of all of them. This year we put carpet tack strips up around the trunks to keep the squirrels and other 4 legged critters from stealing the fruit but seems we have a 2 legged robber...We had picked about half the peaches on this prize tree and then the other half all disappeared in one night. But we still have other types of peaches. Of course I'm putting up peaches in the freezer and also making peach jam. The jam will make terrific Christmas gifts this year.

We have had a bumper crop of blueberries. I still have berries in my freezer from last year so mainly been having the family come and pick what they want and they are now falling off and fermenting so smells like blueberry wine around the bushes now. 

The youngest son and daughter came out and picked yesterday and she is such a joy. She is our youngest grand and is spoiled rotten. but she still remains sweet. She is also my mom and grandmother's name sake. 

While they were here, we gathered some tiger lily seeds and found out the pollen from the flowers can really stain you as got some on my face...now I'm wondering if I could use it for dyeing wool. 

I'm leaving you with an awesome sunset.
