Beautiful weather

It is starting to feel like fall! The air has been cooler, and we have had almost nonstop days with sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. Ahh, I love fall. The pears are starting to get ripe here in our area, and so I am hoping I can get some from our neighbors. Their tree is so loaded that the branches are bowing. I am still wanting to get one more 1/2 bushel of peaches, so we are hopefully going to get some this weekend. I am hoping to make salsa soon. My tomatoes are starting to come on more. We have friends that planted 4 tomato plants, and ended up having 13 volunteer plants come up too, so they are going to have a bumper crop. They said they would be glad to give me some. That would be great! I love the fall growing season. There is so many wonderful veggies and fruits.

Evie and I were laughing this morning at our hummingbirds. They get very territorial around this time of year because they are getting ready to migrate south. They fight like crazy right now. One will be on our feeder, and be trying to drink while looking around. Then another one will swoop in and fight with the one on the feeder. Today they were fighting worse than usual, trying to get to our feeder. In what looked like a hummingbird knock-down drag out fight, they weren't looking where they were going and both ran into the window! Evie and I watched them, and I made the point that they sure weren't very good at sharing :).

I took this picture the other night. Can you say, "Awwwww." :)

Wonderful photo, sooooo cute.
Our hummingbirds are fighting like crazy too. I had wondered why, now I know. They've been fighting so much they aren't even drinking the food I have out for them. Too busy chasing each other off the feeder.
