At my age, it's tempting to feel like you've seen it all. This September proved me wrong. Here's a list of firsts for me:
1) A skunk ducking into the junipers of a neighbour's yard
2) Snow creating a Treemageddon
3) A pocket gopher taking up residency in my garden bed
4) Vole traps
5) Red lily beetles
See what I'd miss if I lived in a condo.
