deciduous holly winterberry is fruiting well, but will look its best when the leaves drop. i decided to photograph it now, as the birds really like the berries and they may not last until leaf drop. pineapple sage is finally blooming. its a tender perennial here, but i always harbor hopes of a mild winter and some survival.

today i threw the ball for the dogs... the whippet is very hard to catch with my digital camera... she's just so fast... see the streak of deer spore on her neck?
the poodle can't catch her, but he does try!

hubs found this beautiful bird's nest while we cut our hedges from 8 to 4 feet tall. The nest is made of twigs and bolstered on the outside with bark from our betula nigra, or river birch.
