Autumn works

This post is also available in : French German Italian

It’s autumn here, and we need to prepare the garden for winter : cut raspberry bushes, clean the kitchen garden, harvest apples, collect dead leaves, tidy up the oustside equipment, … Claire takes advantage of her holidays to do it, with our help of course.

We introduced a colored visitor in the house : an elegant goldfinch (carduelis carduelis). We would have enjoyed his company longer, but Claire did not want. She delicately caught the bird on the curtain of the kitchen (he was a little breathless to have played with us) and put him on the outside edge of the window so that he can rest before flying away towards other adventures.

    Claire did a good job of getting the garden ready for Winter 🙂
    That finch is quite pretty.While we are sure you would like to have played with her,
    we think she has other places to go.

    My Mom & Dad are starting those same chores, but I do not get to join in the fun. I’m glad your mom saved the pretty bird from your “playing” paws.
