Tea, Roses, and Buffalo Wings for Memorandum Monday
Winter is trying to claim a foot hold here in New York from blessing us with a cold, wet, and rainy fall to dropping frozen bits on our heads. The fact that I spent a couple of days early in the week in Buffalo, a place not known for a mild winter just reinforced the idea that it is now officially sweater weather, which also means time for cider, pot roast, and tea. Lots of tea. I've spotted quite a few roses trying to give us one last hurrah before the flurries. This one was spotted along the fence on a block that the Habitat peeps at Buffalo are busying populating with their houses. Some local company has offered matching funds to help them develop a nice neighborhood for their employees. Sounds like a match made in heaven although one wouldn't mistake Buffalo for heaven, although the wings do rock there.
This pretty little bloom is hanging around the side door at the next house we're working on. The house suffered a fire this past winter due to a hard freeze that burst a pipe that put water someplace it shouldn't go. Right now it's a shell of a house, but I'm looking forward to making it a home for someone very soon! More on that soon!
On the home front the trees have given up the very bright reds and mellowed down to some burgandies. THE MAN took a trip up to look at the canopy with the drone. So pretty!
Our house is right over that green sign in nearly the middle of the photo. Aren't those trees pretty! They aren't so pretty when you are raking leaves in the rain. ;-)
Well, it's time to head into Monday. Lots of things planned, one of them may involve moving a couch with roses on it...they are better in a garden vs. on a couch, in my opinion!
Join me in thanking Sian for hosting us on Memorandum Monday!
