|It was a dreary day when we shut things down; we still hated to leave.|
When cleaning out the mess around one of the rose bushes I discovered this vine, which I believe is Climbing Nightshade. It’s a weed – I’ll have to take it out in the spring; but look how pretty the berries are! Not good to eat, though.
|It would have little purple flowers in the summer.|
|The birds flew away when I took the picture, natch.|
|The little sticks are improvised perches; the darn squirrel keeps breaking off the plastic ones.|
|Tongue out to lick!|
|This time last year, he was just starting to work on his belly, but he keeps making more bare spots.|
My spare time – when I’m not goofing off on the computer like this – will go to baking, for the next month: first, baking for the church sale, and then baking for Christmas. Busy times. The snow is falling right now, and there will probably be some accumulation when we get up tomorrow. This should bring on the Christmas mood!
