We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
~ Thornton Wilder
This month I'm going to think of things I am grateful for and list one on the blog everyday.
Living in the forest is a treasure.
Today I walked around trying to find some November photos, but things haven't changed very much from October. More leaves have fallen and we got some rain, but things look much the same. I love the crisp cool air. I really enjoy Autumn.
This photo is for my brother and Sandy to show them how much the ivy has grown and covered the fence here in the front and pretty much all the way around the side. You planted a great ivy!This is the broody Wyandotte. Sheesh! I wish she would give up her efforts to hatch eggs. Today when I checked under her I found two wooden eggs. I moved one over to the right for the photo where it belongs. She had moved it. Poor hen. No chicks.
This is the smaller planter box.
I took the day off and didn't work in the garden.
The bigger planter box.
I checked online for information about putting chicken wire down to keep out the gophers before I put in the dirt. That seems to be a good idea. While I was searching around I found a lot of information about squirrels tearing up planter boxes, either burying nuts and/or eating the vegetables. Some blame the squirrels interest on the type of soil put in the box because it is easy to dig holes in so the squirrels attack. I may have to build some kind of chicken wire cage if the squirrels become a problem. Kristine says not to worry. Let's just see what happens. Sounds good to me. But, I think I will line the bottom with small chicken wire.
Talked to Kathleen today! She said this is going to be a weekly call. How great is that!
And she said she is going to send me some photos
of Tristan, Rhiannon and Jaidan
in their Halloween costumes!
So I can post them.

Now two Light Brahmas are molting!
