The pears were given to us by Cryous' family and are so delicious. It really makes me want to bake something with them as well as enjoying them as they are. Aren't they a beautiful color?
The last pictures are a dedication to the wildlife that lives near us. Don't these wild turkeys know that November is looming? Someone needs to tell them to lay low for a few months, and not be out in plain sight! The other little critter that is giving us a devil of a time are those masked bandits! Raccoons have been digging up our lawn looking for grubs. I think it has been so dry up in the hills near us, that there isn't any food for them, because we have never had this problem before. I'm looking up safe and non toxic solutions to deter them. Any tips would be welcome. I have heard about the wolf urine, and hot sauce sprinkled on the lawn. I might try the hot sauce. I would love to see them in action and then come across the hot sauce, wouldn't you?!
We are going out for a lovely dinner with friends tonight and I'm looking forward to the company and the margarita! Happy weekend everyone.
