Good Morning

The misty Autumn mornings are now here. During the day quite sunny, altough quite cool, but bearable. It is really the weather that says take a walk, or in my case a wheelie with the scooter or wheelchair. It seems that the outside insects, mainly the bees, have now disappeared to wherever they go when it gets colder.

There was a time when my sedum was full of them. From one day to another they were gone.

The sedum, the favourite for pollination, no longer has fresh flowers and is now just an autumn colour.

However I still have my feline visitors-

Roschti, the neighbour’s cat, still arives for his tit bits regularly.

And Joux-joux often appears, but she wanders further to visit the other neighbours.

Yesterday I saw that this little bug was slowly drowning in the bowl of water I have outside for any creeping visitors or birds I might have in the garden. He was struggling to survive so I carefully removed him and put it on dry land to recover. Aftar a few seconds he seemed to be again mobile and crept off. That was my good deed for the day,

And now to move on for my next chores although it is Sunday so not so much to do. I always make sure that dinner is short and sweet on Sunday: a couple of steaks do the job nicely with some frites from my airfryer and an easy vegetable – today brussel sprouts and some carrots for No, 1 son who doesn’t like sprouts,

Have a good Sunday, take it easy – no stress. How about some cosmea – I stole the photo from the neighbour’s garden, but they do look good in the Autumn mists.

  1. Good morning .. Roschti and Joux-joux are so cute. Yesterday we were out shopping and it dropped 15 degrees in about an hour .. so the autumn weather has arrived. We rushed home with our purchases and I started digging out my fall clothes . because I was COLD. Take care and have a great day. SLP….

    • We don’t always get sunny days here so I make the most of them. In Autumnn it often begins with mist, but like today it clears away and the rest is sun – or could be rain, but it is cold.

  2. Good Morning!
    This is the time of year that many of the flying insects, after leaving eggs for next year, die off. It would be kind of sad if some of them were not so obnoxious. I certainly do not miss the wasps that live underground and attack if I get too close to their nest. Not all of them die off, but those who survive are certainly less active.
    We are expecting our first rain of the season in about six or seven hours! It is a major event here. The seasons are changing a bit early for us! Rhody and I will be out watching it as it happens, although Rhody gets annoyed and wants to go in.

  3. This is the first really crisp morning we’ve had. It has been chilly at night for a while, but now it’s chilly by day. Not really COLD, but not summer anymore.

    Great bee closeups! I’m surprised they let you get that close.

    Everything is glowing with color here, but it is the prelude to winter and while I love the fall, I could do without the ice and snow. Permanently.

    • During the day it warms up here, just pleasant Autumn weather. I like to go places, not too far, just for a few photos because the scenery is so interesting. Inam now using my wheelchair more as I can use my larger camera.
      I took the bee photos with the zoom lens.
