Slim and Trim



Take your last peek at Alva (top left) who has now been snipped down to the soil.  She will be placed in the closet until next Spring.  I had to do quite a bit of thinning when I transplanted her this year so we now have two.

And for viewing pleasure is Little Red, still stuffing her face but looking much more slender than she did a while ago.  (Take notice of the bottom right pic...svelte and slimming side view!) Although I haven't seen any "little ones" scampering about, I'm sure it won't be long.




While our Oxheart tomatoes continue to produce, I have begun to clean-up the garden beds.  The Dahlias are still going strong but it will be time to lift them soon and tuck them away for the Winter  until next Spring too.

Are things slimming down in your neck of the woods?

Poor Alva...just call her 'stubby'.

Have you tried taking cuttings of Alva and rooting them in water? Bet it works! Maybe next summer? I'm trying to slim down before our next trip in October. I now walk 2x30 minutes per day and avoid snacking. This should help! Linda@Wetcreek Blog

I've been working on winter prep of my gardens for a few days now. With the temperature in the 40s at night and barely reaching 60F during the day, I don't want to be caught with lots to do during freezing cold weather, or heaven forbid - snow! I lost a rain barrel one year because it was nice out and then freezing and the whole darn thing froze and cracked.
I think our chippies are slim - from running around the yard and taunting the dog!
When I first read your post title I though we were all going to discuss diet efforts. LOL
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday JP.

Your Dahlias are Gorgeous!!!! We do not have red squirrels in this area, only grey. I do think the reds are much prettier...maybe soon you will be posting baby reds, how exciting!!

Donna said...

Beautiful flowers and Little Red is a cutie

EG CameraGirl said...

The squirrels are all chowing down like crazy getting ready for winter. Your blossoms are still looking very healthy!

Pamela Gordon said...

Great mosaics JP. I love the flower ones and Mrs. Squirrel should be due any day now I think. :)

Say goodnight to Alva for me.
Red is looking nice and slim again. Wonder where she's hiding the little ones

Beautiful dahlias, JP. Looking forward to pics of the little ones soon!

Your mosaic is so colorful and pretty! Seems like fall is here, or almost here. I have begun cleaning up the garden too. Hate to see it go!
