We all do better when we all do better.

Moonlight on Lake Huron. The whole area is lit up perhaps partially because of the reflection from the lake.

This is very dark but if you click on the photo you might be able to see the light from the moon reflected on Lake Huron and, reflected in the pond (Walden, of course), at the bottom of the photo, you can see the moon. I think we'll have a full moon tonight so maybe I'll get a better shot.The phases of the moon have been extremely enjoyable and interesting.

Bought three more Hosta from the boys at Sunshiners. (They have great refinished old furniture from estate sales there too.) Finished planting the bulbs from McClure and Zimmerman, the new Hosta, and then the plants from Wayside came. Got them in the ground also. Worked all afternoon on the outer edge of the north garden overlooking the north bluff. Much neater and perhaps we've reduced the erosion a bit.

Some water-lily Colchicums appeared!

We had a population boom of rabbits last summer but recently they seemed to have disappeared. I suspected hawks or even the bald eagle. It's also possible that foxes have been around. Today I found the posterior end of a rabbit near the pole barn - just the spine and the hind legs were left. (Rabbits' feet cannot really be lucky for the rabbit!) I was going to toss it but noticed the yellow jackets feasting on flesh. They deserve their Thanksgiving feast too!

Eupatorium Chocolate

The deer seem to have disappeared; must be the start of hunting season.

More bulbs came today!
