December 5th-Around The Garden

I  am supposed to be  taking a picture  HERE tonight but since I'm home with fever girl. I'll leave you  with these pictures of my garden today.


Brussels Sprouts. Still growing but I have been assured, they are nowhere as impressive as the ones my brother is growing.




Rainbow Chard. These still look amazing really. The one on the left is one that was eaten down by deer when I left the fence open. Look how it's bouncing back. That is new growth you see. A good lesson for life I think. If I were a vegetable I guess I'd want to be rainbow chard......



Last weekend I had my girl gather up all of the pumpkins, gourds & Indian corn we used for fall decorating and put them wherever she wanted around the yard for the animals (Yes, for someone who is always bellyaching about deer in the garden I get the irony of leaving food out) This little guy is the only one left. See those stone slabs. They are near the back of the yard. My husband wanted to remove them but I like them because someone before us put them there for some reason. Best to leave them be I think.

 

 This lies beyond my fence.  I like how that one tree is still holding it's leaves. It's hard to tell,  but today those leaves looked like they were glowing.

Sick Girl in the Garden. Black & White so you don't see her mis- matched jammies, dirty crocs or  how bad that all looks with a leopard print coat. Don't tell my mom I let a sick child outside for some fresh air. I'll never hear the end of it....

For being a sick girl she looks very sweet in that picture, miss matched clothing or not!

Thank for sharing.

Thanks! She was so pathetic yesterday. At the time of the school party she said "I hope I don't miss my school party too." I didn't even mention it. Sounds like you ladies did a great job BTW.

LOL great pic-and what a memory you'll have to write it down and save the pic in a memory book for her....about "not letting a sick kid outside" sounds like something hubby's dad says........
