Saturday 3 p.m. ~ Winterizing the Fountain

The landscaping crew who put in the backyard was back for a fall clean up and to instruct me on how to prune and maintain the different plants. They also prepped the fountain for the winter.

I don't know who's more sorry to see the fountain closed up for the winter, me or the birds. The burbling water feature has been tremendously popular. Traffic picked up these last few weeks especially as we enjoyed warm weather in October and the word got out with the birds in the neighborhood.

The last avian visitor before the guys arrived in the afternoon was a first-time sighting in the backyard, a hairy woodpecker. Too late to the party, my friend. The pool opens again next April.
