So this past weekend, if you can believe, I had to mow one more time. I lowered the mower deck to 1.5" level and made a pass around everything. It definitely needed a trimming and now, as it goes dormant for Winter, it will at least look uniform.

Above and below are photos of the front yard from two different angles. Lots to mow here but even though it was a cool and overcast day, it was a good day to get it all done and now the Zen Machine is finally put up for the season.

We had never noticed before, but this particular mesquite tree, the one we named "Ginger", turns a beautiful yellow in the Fall (Winter?).

It's pretty much the only "Fall Foliage" we get around here, so we'll take it.
|Bird Nest in Tree|
And as I as mowing, I saw this bird nest high up in a tree. Without all the leaves, it's easier to spot these around the property. This one I believe was empty, perhaps even long abandoned, but it is still a fun thing to see.
All this reminds me that the season is over and we're just waiting for the long cold days to settle in. Time to start planning for next year!
