October? Really?

I can't believe it is almost the middle of October. Where did this month go? Oh yeah, watering. Well the rain we expected came - over an inch and what a relief that was. Our straw made way for lots of nice green grass. It's starting to look like a lawn again! I kept busy by getting some of my fall/winter plants in the ground. I bought some mums that like full sun and splurged on some winter pansies. Coming from Michigan, I couln't believe you could grow pretty flowers all winter long! We saw evidence of this last winter, so this winter I have my own.

For visitors to our humble little town, I always try to drive them past the in-city pasture for a look at the cows. Silly, but how many cities have pastureland? One day when driving past one of the car dealers in town, the cows were hanging over fence looking at the new vehicles. How I wish I'd had my camera in tow that day. Sigh. But I did the other day when they were in their pasture grazing. We were stopped at the traffic light and there they were.
On the Fairground road construction front, nothing has been done but moving dirt around. Road construction is basically at a halt. We hear trucks every day, but I think they just drive them up and down to make us think they are working. In the area that is still unpaved there must be at least a dozen homes. One of those homes runs a lunch canteen. That has been closed for the last year. Oh well, trip to Michigan for niece's wedding this week, maybe it will be done when we get home? And maybe pigs fly?
