Get ready....


It's almost October and the nights
are starting to get colder.

  I thought I would get
Remington Drive ready for
winter.  Seems sad to put
everything away.

I remember the flower beds,
they were so nice....



And now....


 Then....


Now....


But now, as always, things change....

Fall
Winter
and then we will return to get
Remington Drive all ready again....
and warmer weather and nice and
pretty flowers....

So it goes....
(Yep, I read Slaughterhouse Five....)

I will now go and take a nap....
dreaming of all the blossoms
that made me smile all summer....
 
Later -- Remington --
the changing seasons fascinate me....
--out!

We are also getting cooler weather which will be a nice change of pace. We are looking forward to Miss Stella's first experience with snow. : )

Oh...oh... you are starting to have the prelude to winter. We're still in the high 80s down here in Florida. I'll send you some warmth if you want.

Have a great day, pal.

I am soooo excited for Fall!!!! I have all of my Halloween decorations out and ready to put them up!!! Halloween is my very favorite holiday!!!!

Slaughterhouse Five rules!!!!! I still remember Billy Pilgrim, though it has been years. I have read many of Vonnegut's books and love them all!! I love your comparisons of the flowers and yard. I will really miss the flowers, but you now have football instead!!!

Madi and Mom said...

Oh Rem I know what you mean the times they are a changing...We're seeing a little red in the dogwood leaves, the hummers are fueling up big time...and this weekend both nights are supposed to be in the 40s....BUT today the humidity is about 85% and the temps are in the high 70's just plain miserable.
Hugs from your BFFF,
Madi

Looks like you already had some frosty weather there. I'll share our 90's with you if you'd like!

Tucker The Crestie said...

We think changing seasons would be fun. Here in Florida, we have hot, hotter, and not so hot. But all still variations on a theme.

Grady and Leonardo said...

We love the snow and look forward to it each and every winter. So much more comfortable than the hotness of Summer.

Love the hat (and you too)
Your BroLeo, Grady and Mom.

We are all truly enjoying the phenomenal fall weather we have been having. We pups are very excited to see winter coming next, but the Momster says she wouldn't mind if we got stuck in Autumn for a long time.

We have enjoyed all your beautiful flowers, Remington, and we can't wait for more next year.

We are starting to get our yard ready for winter too. It won't be long until it is covered with leaves. Get some rest Remington, there is still a lot to do before winter.

Seems like just yesterday you were talking about getting Billy the Bus out and now it is time to put him away already. Where did the time go?
