We've gotten so much done in the garden this year and it is starting to look like a flower garden once again instead of a weed patch with flowers.  We managed to get 2 new pathways created and rocked, about 1/2 the garden is mulched so we will still have plenty to do next year.  We are ready for winter to arrive and leave so spring will be here once again.  

Happy Thanksgiving
from our family to yours

Our Halloween Bumblebee

Bumblebee Bella

We went to the local mall last night for trick or treating since it was so cold and Bella was just getting over a cold.  She had a blast and is ready to go back tonight!
