Garden Blogger's Bloom Day















Okay, I know I am really pretty lat
e in writing this post, but I just couldn't miss out on Garden Blogger's Bloom Day! I have been so busy with school. I had to right a report for my English 111 class that has been taking professor, she has been va bit of time. Not by any fault of myery helpful, the reason this has taken so long, is because I decided to change what I was going to write on two days ago! I just finished it, and thought that I owed it to myself to get this blog post up. I mean, I have preparing it for how many days, a lot! So this is pretty cool, my mom is starting her cookbook (finally!), it has been like pulling teeth in order to get her to do this. She is probably the best chef that is on the face of this planet. So this week it has been a nonstop cook-a-thon, just so that we can get pictures of all of her food! It would be me who is taking all of the pictures, since I am the one that owns the really cool camera! Anyway enough about this, lets get out hands dirty in the garden! It sort of feels odd writing and seeing all the pictures of leaves since it is snowing outside! Ahhh, the first snow! Okay, I am ready to pack up the luggage and go to Puerto Rico, yeah! I will have to post some pics of my trip to Puerto Rico, and hopefully when I go next summer you will all get the chance to see and travel with me in the pictures that I bring back. Any who, enough of the tropics...brrr its cold!

I was late on my GBBD as well. I found a couple blooms left but my yard looks pretty much like yours, lots of leaves on the ground.

Nice saturation on your fall leave photos! I really like the bench/swing one.

We just had our first snow today, burr is right. I hope it doesn't stay until around Christmas time.

The leaves look so pretty! I don't get to see much seasonal change in Florida so your pictures are treat to my eyes.
Have fun in Puerto Rico!

Zach ~ Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I missed bloom day and then just didn't get my post together at all. Sometimes it just happens that way. Very nice leaf photos. It's nice to see some color since all I am looking at right now is white :)

Hi Zach, I'm not sure I've commented here before, but was just going through my comments on GBBD and wanted to get back with you. You have (had, at this point!) a lovely garden in November!! I wonder what December's will look like? Jan
