putting me in the mood for Fall.
Now I'm not one to hurry time along, if there is anything
I've learned, is that time goes by way to fast.
that can be brought in for the coming season.
I know Michael's does a big business, but I've found for me,
I can do just as well scouring my backyard and the neighborhood alleys.
My space is small, I have to be careful not to over do.
One thing I can not live without come Fall...
...lots of mums!
My sister and I headed out this past Saturday to my favorite local nursery,Vest.
It is a family business and they grow everything
in their own greenhouses.
I took along my camera, I knew there would be lots of
dramatic Fall colors
when we got to the Mum houses.
What a surprise I had!
Oh, there were rows and rows of mums, but no color.
Mrs. Vest, owner and operator told me that the mums were about three weeks later
due to the extreme heat we experienced over the Summer.
We purchased Nine and vowed to go back for more
in a few weeks.
I planted three in the backyard and the other six will find homes in pots on the front porch.
As we were leaving, we got a glance of coming attractions. Three or four houses of
Christmas Poinsettias, and that was only what we could see.
Can't wait for that picture.
Happy gardening to all.
