Have you noticed how my fall garden changes from the summer hot reds and oranges to pastel pinks and yellows?
I love both color schemes so I have been working at making a complete change from summer to fall. I think I have it backwards, but all that pink sedum sort of controls what else I can plant with it. Today I noticed some purple with the first day of bloom for the fall asters. I also have some hot pink asters. These are the flowers that I have been digging out by the wheelbarrow load to toss in the wooded area. They are very weedy, but I do like the flower. It comes at a time when I really need something new to flower.
Remember my butterfly bush that was not doing very well? It did produce a few blooms, but it's half the size it should be. Hopefully next year will be better. Please ignore that hose hanging down. I just finished watering the deck and didn't feel like running up there to move it before taking this pic.
In today's mail I got a big Spring Hill envelope full of individual pages of flowers. I just HATE getting these individual pages! There must be two dozen of them printed front and back. Whatever happened to a nice catalog that I can leaf through without papers falling all over?
I don't care what kind of discount they are offering. I don't want to waste my valuable free time trying to sort through all of this, so into the garbage it all went.
Is it just me or do you guys also hate this type of advertising?
I finished painting my picture frame tonight. It did need a bit of touch up. There are always little places on the inside that I didn't quite hit with the spray paint.
Now it's done and on the wall.
At the moment I am liking it.
