This week it was time to add a mum or two to the residence!


It was SO difficult to decide, there were too many colors to make a decision, but after looking at every one, at least twice . . . AND a trip to get a few pumpkins . . .

So now the front yard looks seasonally correct, but a miracle is going on in the back yard.


YES, STILL ALIVE. In OCTOBER. I haven’t killed them yet! (nor has mother nature). Though in all fairness, it is usually me, NOT mother nature that ends their little summertime life.
