Autumn Mums

Autumn is my favorite time of year. It's time for comfy sweaters, warm drinks and pretty colors. 

And, although our weather stays warmer than most, our trees do change color and my mums bloom profusely. 

For me, mums are the perfect late season bloomer. With so many colors available, they will brighten your yard as much as the colorful changing leaves. 

I always look forward to when my mums start blooming. This red mum has been blooming every year since 2003. The color is one of my favorites. Mums being hardy and our winters saying relatively mild, mean the mums continue on year after year. 

Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful. ~Jim Carrey

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.

September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
