THRICE UPON A YELLOW WING

Last weekend I made a return visit to Wing Cottage, and assisted my friend in taking down her vegetable garden and various garden beds for the season.  The late October weather was glorious, some trees still clad in the celebratory hues of autumn.

Her vegetable garden harvest had proved bountiful throughout the summer, though upon my arrival this time around I was greeted with just these darling little diehard strawberry plants.  And the rooster.

Upon the plants being cut back, it was apparent that the decorative treasures tucked about would now take center stage and be the sole stars of the show.

The property is lined with a few bluebird houses, something I hadn't taken notice of during my previous two stays at Wing.

My friend's periodic archeological property gleaning has rewarded her with numerous curiosities and props to play around with and display.  She gifted me the bottles and jars, which I will add to my overabundant, yet never enough, collection of bud vases.

The pond on the property was the "it" spot for a harmonious choir of frogs and crickets during my visit back in August; though, by last weekend the performers had already packed up and left.  This time around the tune was rustling leaves, and though still music to my ears, proof that fall was in full gear.

However, my friend's boyfriend apparently still hears frogs and crickets.

I bet Wing wears a blanket of snow well, peeking out like a little yellow box of sunshine.  I would love to find out.
