Getting to the end of the season.

I hung some koi windsocks along the garden fence to help keep the deer out (hopefully).

They're used in Japan to celebrate Boy's Day. It's been a Boy's Day festival everyday at this house for a couple of decades but soon it'll just be an occasional thing.

Yesterday we took a ride up Sunshine Canyon, past Gold Hill, into Nederland and down Boulder Canyon, looking for any early aspen changes. We saw a few gold medallions but not a lot. I was surprised to see the snow in some of the mountain crevices leftover from last winter.
This week was our highest ever for the business, amazing for this economy. We spent a few days getting the condo ready to rent and found a couple who signed last night. I realized I misestimated the integrity level of a long time friend after I found some unadmitted damage he had done. Lesson learned. The Maximillian Daisies are blooming again, so fall is around the corner. They start now and will bloom till the first frost. The garden gate is getting there - one post is firmly embedded in the ground. Sweetie is likely to move back in with this sweetheart later this week; Honey finalized his plans to go back to LA and Sugar made his reservations to visit his big brother in WA this week.
