It was cold but nice today so I made myself go outside and to get some things done before it starts freezing up on us again.  One of the things was to spread some seashell sand on top of my beds.  Carolyn and I gathered some for our gardens last week and I just never got to it earlier...

I just love this stuff, but it is heavy to pack around so it takes a long time to get enough in my beds.  Most of my beds have enough in them, but I have added so much new material to then this fall that I wanted to add some more seashell sand too.

If you look around you can see beauty in even a dead garden....

The ducks are happy...

I've got the stock tank heater in the duck pool, so now if it freezes I am ready.
