Life changes in a second....

My mom died at 87 years old on Saturday.  I'll post more later, but here obituary came out yesterday, so I'm posting it up.  It's been busy around here....

Mary, Did You Know

This is totally breathtaking....I had to go get their album immediately on Amazon.  Such a beautifully performed work.

Birthdays, Octoberfest and other celebrations....

We had a whirlwind at the beginning of the month, starting with two birthdays, JR's....

JR & Ash brought everyone some things from Hawaii!

and mine. We celebrated at Grady's....

Then a huge Octoberfest party where I failed to take hardly any pictures. Really big time photo fail.

Mario Kart brothers...
 KT, where are you?
 Lots of food
 The kids play area
 Beeps and Addie!
 Lots of wine and German beer was had, along with a great bunch of conversation and a big bonfire. And I didn't take any pictures.  :-(

Around the Winter garden ....

We finally had a good winter blast.  Darn!
The morning glories are kaput!
 We wrapped the two fig trees, hope they will be okay!
Dwarf Siberian Kale
 I planted several pots of various greens several weeks ago.  They are loving the warm humid greenhouse.
 Dutch Corn Salad
  Radicchio
Swiss Chard Bright Lights 
Mini Bak Choy
The tomato pots I pulled up and moved to the greenhouse have resettled very well.  I was worried a bit since I had to yank out a few tap roots when I moved them.

 I took all of the green tomatoes off before the frost.  They are destined for green tomato chutney when I can cook again.
 The roses are still blooming away...both of these are from the butterfly rose bush.

This little eggplant seed has the "will to live." it's a mini, ornamental. Poor thing just kept chugging along, from seedling to small pot, to bigger pot, to garden.  All summer it just languished until this fall when I dug it up and put it back in a pot and stuck it in the greenhouse.  Now look how it rewards me! A tiny little jewel!
