Fall Waxing Harvest Moon
A day made for bulb planting, fall clean up. Kate worked out front pruning back the roses, spirea and decluttering. I got started with 24 bulbs, a kaleidoscope mix of various tulip colors. Tomorrow morning will find me back out there, kneeling in what passes for prayer these days, tucking small living things beneath the earth, feeding them and pulling the blanket back over their pointy little tops.
This is, too, the season when mice, content to feed outdoors during the growing season, return to the warmth and comfort of domestic life. Kate gets exercised when she sees mouse droppings, so we put out the decon and the ropax. Seems ornery on our part but spreading disease is on theirs. Wonder if Disney ever included warfarin in a Mickey Mouse cartoon?
Also bought some more half pint jars for honey, bulb food for a our winter sleepers, a snack when they wake up, a 50 pound and a 20 pound bag of dogfood, plus two bags of dog treats.
Saturday sort of stuff.
