Perfect weather.

My recycled pipe trellis almost done, just need a few end caps.

New trees/bushes, only time will tell if they do good in the garden.
Bush Lonicera, not sure the species?

Buffalo Berry


And this is one from spring, not sure if I already posted it or not?
Bigtooth Maple, I hope it does better next season.

A little fall color starting to show.

If you want the weather to change, just wait five minutes.

Fall is here and the weather is changing fast.  Last weak we had a high of 92F and yesterday we had a daytime high of 40F.  Some lite snow fell in the night but did not stick.  We also had about an inch of rain "which we needed very much" but was a shock after having 94 days of clear sky for the summer.  The rain we had the other day was nice because it cooled off things and was not as cold.  For the past 2 days I froze and I'm not sure if I can handle one more year of Idaho's cold winters.  I say this every year, like if it matters, of course I can take it I have never lived anywhere else.

What I thought was nice weather to come.

Dust storm that I missed, well I could not take my camera out in it.

And after 2 days of cold, wind and rain.  Doesn't look to bad in the pic though. hmmm!
