A Beautiful Day in the Neighboorhood

I took these photos yesterday of  the area around our cabin when the car was not in the driveway. My husband had gone searching for our two golden retrievers who took off when he returned from the mailbox. They got out of the car and shot down the road.  we are trying to keep them on leashes since the burs are so bad in the dog coats. 

This looks from our house pass our driveway to the forest, sorry about the "WildBlue Satellite" pole in the photo, it is our Internet connection with  Dish Internet. The galvanized tub hold pansies. 

This is the front yard looking to the bridge walkway from the yard and this tomato is still trying to produce and I love the red/pink blooms on what I call river cane, but that is not the name, I don't believe. I water it a lot and it is very invasive so I pull up a lot too and put other places.

his in the side yards and the lawnmower is covered with the tarp since I have been mowing leaves for mulching in my garden beds.  The elephant ears are to over winter ( I hope) as the root bulbs are gigantic to dig. I have mulched them good and they are slowly collapsing.  I see good birdbaths from concrete going to waste since they are too big for me to work with.

Our kitty "Blak" is sitting on the banister while my fairy garden bowl was watered. I just pour water over it from a milk jug and let it drip from the hole in the up cycled misting bowl, remember those?  You can also see the morning glories still trying to go strong although low temperatures have been the the 40's lately!
This zinnia has a yellow star in the center, so lilliputian

Bailey returned home with burs from the forest

It is a beautiful day  in the neighborhood!

Hi Cyndi,
So nice to meet you and thank you for stopping by and your kind comment and giveaway entry.
I have so enjoyed seeing your pics and how beautiful your plantings are and the colors of Autumn around your home and deck.
Your goldens must be gorgeous seeing a bit of them in the pics. I hated those burs on mine too. I just lost my sweet Golden Retriever (Miss Beazy Lee) 5 months ago today when she was hit by a car after darting off. She was our 4th Golden over the years and the only girl. I miss her terrible.
Thank you for becoming a new follower on my blog as I am a new follower here too.
Have a great Monday and hug your babies for me.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Yes, it is hard to stay inside it is so beautiful here in the Western North Carolina mountains!

I can understand how badly you miss your" Miss Beazy Lee". Our golden retrievers we have now are both rescues and they love to play together!

I am back outside with my camera again this beautiful fall morning!
Smiles, cyndi
