The days are shorter. Cold and darkness falls quickly. It makes me want to snuggle up in bed with a book, which is what I've been doing most every night.
However on Monday nights you will find me watching The Black List. It is my favorite new show. James Spader, in my opinion, is giving the best performances of his career.
Week after week I am astonished at his acting skills. His mannerisms even have me spellbound. And for someone who doesn't watch much TV, that's quite a compliment. I keep wondering if he developed those mannerisms himself or was told to do them. But they are perfect for his role.
They've been showing Monday's episode again on Saturday night, and I watch it again. If it weren't for him, it would just be another show. But he makes it superb. I am hooked.
I have brought all my house plants back in. Some I took out of the potting soil and put in those pebble-like things called Hydroton that I ordered from Amazon.com. I want to see how they do before I pot them all.
Just look at my fence garden. Completely out of control again with those vines. But last time I got out there hacking them down I was sick with asthma for weeks. So I guess I'll just have to let Mother Nature freeze them.
I know. Someone is going to email me and ask me to please at least cut them away from the colorful sun's face.
I still have a few roses blooming. They're quite protected by all the bountiful vines.
And so are the morning glories,, but they've slowed down. Judy says she will never again look at a morning glory and not think of my broken ankle. That's what I was headed out to photograph when I fell well over a year ago.
I cannot remember where hese mums came from. But they're finally opening up and blooming. I have them in a galvanized tub.
These red berries are growing vines on the other side of my driveway. I don't know what they are.
I still have an occasional zinnia. I just love them. This year they came up red and pink mostly. I planted more colors, but none of them came up apparently.
The leaves are finally starting to turn colors. I've got to get out to the rose garden and Swan Lake and take some photos soon.
Judy's grandson came over and took some stuff to the dump for me this morning.. I'm in purging and cleaning mode.
