August 31, 2012: the girls swept up a few small piles of dead leaves that had blown off the green ash tree. First day of fall 2012?
August 30 & 31: the first ticks of the fall season (yuck!). Found two teeny tiny black deer ticks on Evie. About the size of a pin prick. The girls had been playing in the garden and round the back yard before bed. Those pesky deer have a lot to answer for. (See my next post, too!)
