We haven’t/hadn’t yet had a frost so our banana tree is still alive and at least 12 feet tall.
All the rain has caused some beautiful moss to grow in one of our bamboo plants.
Our fire pit has seen some good use this year.
The giant pine tree in our front year provides an endless amount of pine cones, pine mulch and shade. The lavender is still going strong. Although I’ve seen a few birds go in and out of our birdhouse, no one has made a permanent home there.
I love this frosty blue-green sage. Lucy, our chocolate cocker spaniel, just turned 5 and has been scaring us a bit with some strange health episode.
We are so crazy about her. Isn’t she just adorable? She’s as sweet and as soft as she looks. (She found a new “bed” in the throw blanket storage box behind the couch.)
The heavenly bamboo out front is producing lots of pretty red berries.
