Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

One of the few days since I returned from Portugal that the rain stopped. The Japanese Maple tree is bright red. One pink Cosmos flower remained, and the Zinnia flowers are on their last leg. I need to mow the remaining wildflowers, and plant for next spring.

Backyard Autumn Yard Work in New Jersey.

There is a lot of yard work that needs to be completed before winter. I set up the Garmin VIRB-360 camera to record the day on the front of my Lawn Tractor.  I’ve ordered a powered mounting bracket to mount the camera in my car. A lot easier than when I mounted a camera on a tripod sitting in the passenger seat for recording time-lapse videos of cross country road trips.
