Frosty Spruce

Lots of ice and frost in the mornings now. Everyone wants it to snow!

Snow Mallard

The forecast was correct this time; snow early Sunday morning. All the ducks haven’t flown south yet and a few rested in the snow on our lawn.

Rising Mists

As the sun came up this morning a rising mist appeared over the lake. Every day is different.

Morning Frost 28 Degrees

It was a bit nippy outside this morning and a heavy layer of frost coated everything. Midday warmed up to 32 degrees and sunshine. Winter is not far away.

Rain, rain, rain

It was 38 degrees this morning, the surrounding mountains are loaded with fresh snow, and we are inundated with rain! Blake Colton from Colton Underground Sprinklers stopped here this morning and restored power to the dock, somehow it got shut off when the sprinkler systems were being winterized. So, I think the yard is now […]

Ready for Winter

With the help of three wonderful women; Rachel, Patty, and JoAnn, I was able to finish getting the yard ready for winter. We cut back perennials, pulled weeds, and cleaned up. Yay, a big job done. Thank you my lovely women friends. The rain forecast for the whole week did not materialize, it was a […]

Fireweed Fall

The wildflower Fireweed, is beautiful throughout all of the seasons. The leaves have turned all shades of yellow, orange and red this fall, and adds rich color to the yard.

Rose Tree Of China in the Fall

One of the more spectacular fall colored plants in my yard is the Rose Tree of China. I planted several in the yard out by the lake and the colors this year are gorgeous!

From Green To Gold

The neighbors lot next to our fenced garden is filled with Paper Birch trees changing from green to gold. We needed a 7′ fence around the garden because moose love to hang out in the woods next door, and were feasting on our veges. Moose can jump a fence lower than 7′, this one has […]

Cutting Back Perennials

Bob sat on his walker and helped me a bit yesterday, we are cutting back all the perennials for winter. It will take two more days to get the job done.

Tearing Down the Pea Vines

Time is of the essence to ready the yard for winter. Yesterday I tore down all the pea vines, there were still some good peas on them so Princess puppy and I munched raw peas while I worked. Princess is a vegetarian puppy, she loves raw carrots and peas.

The Leaves are Nearly Gone

The trees are almost bare thanks to a strong wind the last few days. That was a very quick autumn.

Leaf Puddle

The trees are nearly bare thanks to a strong wind the last few days.

Beautiful Fall Day

What a stunning Fall day, the lake is flat calm and the sun is shining.

Changing Colors

Colors are changing, leaves are blowing, Fall is here. I saw some Termination Dust at the top of the local mountains.

The Colors of Fall

Soon the landscape will be a riot of color. Love Fall in Alaska!

Frost Kill

And, it begins….the first casualty of Fall, my Asiatic Lilies are toast.

Last Color Before the Frost

We had a light frost last night, but any time now we will be hit with the big freeze! The flower pot is still struggling to stay in bloom, we shall see how long this lasts.

Fungus on Stump

Originally what I thought were mushrooms growing in the woods turned out to be a fungus covering the old, rotting tree stump. Interesting!

Rose Hips

The wild Roses have gone to seed, the plants are full of these red Rose Hips. In the middle of these I saw a Birch leaf mottled with the leaf miner.
