1. My camera needs repair. I'm sending it off today to Canon to do just that. It still takes pictures but the display is not working so I'm not quite sure what the photo will look like. It has served me well so it makes sense to repair it but in looking at new cameras I found one to put on my wish list. Maybe ...
2. On this October oneth the trees are saying its fall. Every tree has a mix of green and yellow or brown or reddish brown. Soon the predominant will not be green.
3. Wedding planning continues. The invites have been out two weeks and responses are trickling in. It's definitely a study in who keeps a calendar and who doesn't. I can only imagine where some of those invitations are now buried on desks, dining room tables, or junk drawers. Dan says if we don't hear from some it must mean they're not coming. Is that really true? Or did they just forget about it, lose the invitation?
4. My vegetable garden has been cleaned up for winter. I still have zucchini growing - the latest in the season that has happened. The lettuce is lovely and the snow peas are blooming and forming nice pods. Wish I could show you. Garlic from Fedco is on its way so planting of that will happen this month.
5. My bedtime reading is a book on gardening myths. One of which is that perennial gardens are easier than annual gardens. This is a myth and I can attest to that. When you plant a perennial you think that all you have to do is keep it trimmed and fertilized. Well, that perennial likes to grow, and spread, and send out seeds or runners and before you know it wants to take over. It's work to keep them in bounds. I spent a good amount of time in my perennial garden yesterday pulling weeds and perennial seedlings that I decided had to go. There would have been a time that I would have transplanted those seedlings but not yesterday. More needs doing but maybe not today.
