Susan's favorite colors as a little girl were pink & purple... Mother Nature gave her a present this year:
...which the bumblebees partook of gratefully:
vibrant colors in autumn look so lovely along Susan's hand-laid stone path leading up to the back door of the house:
...as the bunny rabbit wind vein points the way to the colors:
Meanwhile... Margie plays a game with our backyard wheelbarrow and her ball to entertain herself when her "sticks" (fallen tree branches) are resting... or boring...
she places her ball atop the push-cart wheelbarrow:
pretends that the wheelbarrow has stolen her ball and begins a repetitive shrieking scold:
she then manages to rescue her ball from the criminal cart:
and then howls at the wheelbarrow for accosting her and her favorite toy:
...a quick pose for wheelbarrow advertisement in Sears catalogue:
...the ball goes to the other side of the wheelbarrow and she continues to bark:
Our neighbours on the other side of the white picket fence (who gave us our pumpkin recently that was growing on their side), came home during this dog game and the lady asked, "Is that Margie barking???!! Wow, I've never heard her bark before!" And Susan laughed and explained the game as best she could over Margie's shrill vocals.
