Deer Crossing Signs

Happy Saturday everyone!!  We're seeing quite a few deer out and about now.  They're beautiful, but I'm always afraid they will run across the road in front of me, and that wouldn't be good for anyone involved.

The Look of Fall

I added some fall touches to the terrarium in our den.  This style of terrarium is known as a Wardian Case, and you can read what I wrote about them Here.  I haven't tried real plants in mine, because I don't think they would survive; this corner of the den gets almost no sunlight.  I just substitute other things for live plants -- do I know how to have fun, or what?  :-D

The Fall Roses

The leaves are turning beautiful autumn russets and golds and starting to fall faster now.  The grass looks like green velvet around them.  There's a definite nip in the air, and we have freeze warnings in our area through tonight.  Yet, there's one sweet reminder of past spring days beside our front porch --

Return To Mitford

Hi folks!  I've been missing in action again; I've decided this is going to be the norm for me the rest of this year.  At least it feels that way.  Part of the reason for this is my husband has some extra vacation days to take this year, and when he's home, I like to spend time with him.  My posting will probably be sporadic, and my visits too, but I promise I will visit you.  :)

We seem to stay pretty busy when Mr. Forest Manor is home, but I hope I'll have some house and home things to share with you before too much longer.  Those are the things we're really interested in, right?  In the meantime, this is what I have to share at the moment.

This and That

**UPDATE TO PREVIOUS POST**  I found out late Wednesday night that author Jan Karon mentioned my Mitford posts on her Facebook page (September 2, 2015) and linked to my blog.  I was so honored to receive a shout-out from her!  For those of you who are fans, she has a new book out now.  You can find out more about it on the Jan Karon Facebook page.



Happy October everyone!
