Luis said, he wants to enjoy a comfortable evening, watching TV from the armchair. His wish is granted, as it is every evening. He’s such a spoiled pup. But he deserves every little bit of it. ❤
While Kevin did his workout with his friends, I took a little stroll with my camera through the neighborhood this morning. It was very rewarding. In early morning, our roofs were covered in a thin layer of frost. But once the Sun came above the horizon, it warmed up very nicely. The Waning Gibbous Moon was still high in the sky. And the birds sang their songs about frosty Autumn nights.
Since the Fox Squirrels love to live and hang out in these Pecan trees at the Greenway Park off of Eisenhower Street in Carrollton, Texas, and the Pecan Tree is the State Tree of Texas, it was perfect to name my blog page “Under The Pecan Tree”, almost three years ago. These squirrels are well fed from all the pecans. And they are so cute, when they chase each other throughout the park. The Greenway Park has also a pond, where turtles and ducks love to visit.

The trees stand dormant and naked. The Summer birds have flown south. The frost settles in or snow begins to fall. The beavers are busy making last minute preparations for the Winter ahead.
The November Full Moon is all about the final Winter preparations. It’s a time to bundle up and relax. A time to surround ourselves with things that will comfort and sustain us during the dark and cold that has so recently arrived at our doorstep.
At this time of the year, the berries have ripened on the Chinese Tallow trees. The White-winged Doves go crazy for these berries. Every time, I’m in the backyard, I hear a lot of wing flapping in the neighbor’s tree across the alley. There are at least two dozen White-winged Doves sitting in the Chinese Tallow tree. And each dove keeps picking these delicious fruits until the tree is empty.
