The red and gold season is fading to brown now. Twice last week we had high winds overnight, so many of the remaining leaves fell to the ground. It's nice that the grass stays green in wintertime here, and so does the laurel hedge.
Above are the maple leaves that we raked up on Saturday and carried out to the vegetable garden plot. In the gap between the cherry laurel hedges on the left and the hazelnut hedge on the right there's a view of the vineyard and the woods behind it.
The leaves are also off the linden tree right behind the house. And above is the house with its new look, now that the greenhouse is in place. We are still in the process of moving plants into the new space, and there's Callie in the photo watching me as I wander around the yard with my camera.
Finally, I'll finish my brown theme with a closeup of the tile in our new shower. We're expecting the plumber in a couple of hours. He needs to put up the glass enclosure around the shower base and install the plumbing fixtures. Maybe we'll be able to start using the new shower tomorrow.
