Cosmos from a friendly neighbor...

Saturday today started off cloudy...
The potager was wet from the heavy rain yesterday...
Could not really work on the wet soil...

So, filed the teeth of the chain saw to get ready for the upcoming wood collecting season for our wood stove...

And changed the rotor-blade of the grass cutter machine...
Many of the blades were chipped due to inadvertent hits on rocks and pebbles while cutting the grass...

Later part of the morning, began to work on the slopes...
Am using wood recycled from the stone masons to make 'terraces' along the slopes...

Was pleasantly surprised to receive some cosmos flowers from a neighbor the other day...
Along with the chrysanthemum, the cosmos is probably the most representative of flowers in Japan for the month of October...

Am linking this post to the Garden Bloggers Bloom Day for the first time...
