                 Mr Bunny stopped by for a visit the other day.

He just kinda hung out in the same spot for awhile.

There is a lot of clover in the grassy edge of my garden.
I think it saves my flowers altho they do venture in for Liriope.  

Have a good week...cooler..Yay!!

 These clouds are moving pretty fast
and it's getting brighter.
I was hoping for some much needed rain.

Just as the sun was starting to come out..
a downpour !

A downpour that lasted all of five minutes 
 and the sun didn't miss a beat.


Every little bit helps..I hope.

 Some of you may remember that this past Spring
the groundhog ate my Cone flowers to the ground 
before they bloomed.

They came back but took all summer and are pretty stunted.
I actually prefer them short and compact.
I bought some Dwarfs several years ago.

Home Depot has pots of mixed colors of Cone flowers
so I purchased a couple to replace my Geraniums.

I'm going to use these instead of Mums.
I love Mums but they just don't last and I find myself replacing them
several times by the time Thanksgiving rolls around.

I will plant these in my garden late in the fall. 
I hope they don't become Groundhog food.

I may buy a few Mums after I do that.
I don't put those in my garden.

 Happy Fall ya'll ! !

This Mourning Dove has been sitting on this railing 
for over an hour.

It's a nice shady spot on a hot day.....

albeit a bit precarious.

Uh oh...Here comes the UPS guy..gotta go!

Have a nice weekend....Happy Fall !

Locally there is a rather high end car park where they sell
Mercedes, Porsche, Audi and BMW.
Every fall they hold an "Oktoberfest" that is free for customers.

So, my sister and her husband and I
 donned our Mercedes Tee shirts 
and went for the festivities and food.

Beer is limited to two per patron.

Food is of German decent and cold as well !
But it's the fun that counts, right?

My sister..hamming it up for the camera.
Mercedes motto is "The best or nothing" or as I like to say
"Nothing but the best"...

They have an Um pa pa Band who are actually quite good.

We carried on a bit with a little Polka !

They use this opportunity to sell there wares and in the morning
they held a free service clinic for their customers.

This is the first year we have gone that the weather hasn't been
cold and rainy (no chance of that here these days)..
so the sides of the tent were up.

 Always well attended..
Home in time to see the end of the Penn State game.

 It's that time again.
This past weekend we held our Fall Faire.
Lots of things are donated or hand made.

Cute froggies.

There were hot dogs and soup for the lunch crowd.
Our knitting ladies provided many nice items this year.

The bakery table is always a hit..
I volunteered a couple of hours.
I had to leave a little early to go to "Oktoberfest".
That will be another post.

Have a fun week....
