Another Pass

This morning's forecast frost did not materialize, so we have yet another beautiful day in which to enjoy the last of autumn's beauty in the flower garden! In anticipation of the event, I decorated the whiskey barrel I placed on the stump in the new daylilly bed I made a few weeks ago up the hill. In another couple of weeks, it will be time to put the winterberry and pine boughs in before the soil gets too frozen to stick the limbs in.
It's a sunny, crisp day up here and H and I are off to make our annual trek up Day Mountain in Acadia National Park. It's a fairly easy 6 - 7 mile hike via the carriage roads, and the view is to die for (pictures in tomorrow's blog)!
I'm using the new Beta Blogger and so far, so good. Everything transferred nicely and I've not had much time to play with it, so I don't know if there's really that much new to make it worthwhile changing. If anyone has any hints or tips, please let me know.

Here are a couple more pics of H's wood stacks. He loves his wood and is beginning to put tarps on all of his stacks in order to keep them dry over the winter. If any of you have watched Home Improvement on TV, you will appreciate the fact that he calls this the "Binford 6100 Tarping System"! Note: The weights holding down the tarps are plastic coke bottles filled with water. We Mainers make use of everything! "-)

What a clever idea decorating your barrel for different seasons.

I wonder what critter ate your pumpkin?
