I love fall. I love that fall appeals to all my senses–beautiful trees, cooler temperatures, rustling leaves, burning fields, apple and pumpkin treats!
I enjoy getting out my fall decorations, too.
We usually go to a pumpkin patch for our pumpkins. The summer rains were not friendly to the pumpkin farmers. This year we ended up getting our pumpkins at the Open Arms Pumpkin Fun Run fundraiser.
Typically, I grab some mums at Walmart or Lowe’s to set around with the pumpkins.
After the blooms have died and the cold sets in, I dump the pots in the trash. Yes, I know you can plant them. I never seem to have the time.
Well, last year, the pots never even made it to the curb! Shame!
They have sprouted lovely weeds courtesy of the wind and the birds.
There is another pot, however, that is different.
It decided to root itself through the bottom of the pot!
I have mums and I didn’t even have to leave home to get them!
They aren’t the perfectly shaped kind from the store–that’s okay.
I have not bought any fancy mums from the store yet. I may let my “survivor mum” have a chance in the spotlight this year!
I have, however, added a few decorations to the porch. I’ll get around to the inside of the house eventually.
Don’t you love that you get to use your fall decorations for a long time?!
Now, go make some fall cookies or something. Here is an idea–Applesauce Cookies.
