Yesterday was the fall follow up for the exterminator. You know when we had ants in the spring? So the man comes and he's one hour late(not good ) . He re-baits those mouse contraptions in the basement and sprays inside and outside for bugs, ants and spiders. creepy crawly things. To be truthful, we have not seen anything in the house since the first treatment...so caught that early.:) This is a picture of our birch tree, leaves changed and falling off.
Once the leaves were gone, you can see a big droopy robin's nest. I knew I'd heard them singing in that tree.
Ted and I went down the road to admire the neighbor's burning bushes. This one is almost as tall as the shed.
The one in front still had some green in it. This bushes sure add color to the autumn landscape.
Now here's a happy man. He has the golf cart back....at the cost of 915 dollars. This is added to the 95 dollars for the bug man. Ouch...that took a nice bite of the household budget. Six batteries, cables, nuts, bolts ,hold downs ..whatever....it adds up along with labor costs.
So we took it for a test drive. So much better. I did not worry about having to push it back to the garage. LOL
Can you see the reflective spot on the ground under the trees?? Well that is webs,webs, webs !!!! Every inch of ground around our area is covered in webs. You know there was a spider at the end of each stand. Yikes. I had my sweatshirt hood on.
This Saturday morning we had a thin frost. That means it's going to start being colder here. The next 6 days are to be sunny and in the 60's. But I love that. We will be doing some yard work now that the cart's back home and we can rake the leaves. Wishing all of you a fun weekend. XO
