Autumn Days

I'm having a wonderful day.  The kids woke up happy and trotted off to school; the husband left for the field to get back into the harvest after the rain on the weekend and it froze again last night, thus truly putting an end to the majority of my gardens and answering the question of what I should I clean up next.

Yes, frost is a good thing, as I will get all my yard work done easily now before the snow flies.  Also, I noticed on my last 2 strolls around the country side that the mosquito population has significantly dropped, so now building a campfire is a much more welcomed thought.

The fall décor is out, the pumpkins are off the vine and the kids are talking about their Halloween costumes; I so love this time of year.  Oh, and I didn't mention that I had fresh bread for breakfast and a quiet cup of tea, (London Fog, my favorite).  Not a bad way to start the day at all.

Now maybe I should throw in a few photos, just for something pretty to look at and something to browse through over the winter and inspire for me for the upcoming Spring.

I have shared this post HERE at Good Fences.  Have I mentioned how much I love fences?  I never considered taking them down when we moved here.  I could easily visualize working them into my gardens.  Just look how those hops love the fence?  I may have to add some extra support!


The marigolds just won't quit!  I can not believe how long the blooms are lasting, nor how huge the
plants are.

Hundreds of zinnias adorn my yard.  In the formal flower bed, in the vegetable garden and
even in planters.  They are fun and easy to grow.  They also make the most
fabulous bouquets!

Picking some gourds to add to my fall display both inside and out.

Let the fall decorating begin!
