Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

 Got a picture of a squirrel on the back deck with a giant nut in his mouth.  That nut is almost as big as his head.  We don't have a tree near by that drops those nuts so he carried it a long way.  In the second picture a squirrel is digging in one of the pots we used to grow tomatoes this year.  I don't know if he was trying to dig up a something or burying a something.

Early Frost

 Our first frost came early this year.  Usually we don't see it until after the first of November.  The first picture shows the very sad Elephant Ears in the front yard.  The leaves are brown and curled up.  Meanwhile the Elephant Ears on the side still look great.  The brick wall protected them and perhaps kept the temperature from dropping quite as low.
