I had to chuckle a bit because, I, too, bake way less than I used to and I often have lumpy brown sugar. It's good to know so many others have similar problems. Good luck to all of you trying to save your brown sugar in the last hours before your Thanksgiving feast. I wonder, are you making sweet potatoes with brown sugar or pumpkin pie? For those of you in distress who find this post when you search, I have posted my method of dealing with lumpy brown sugar here .
Right after work today, I threw a load of laundry in and went out to cut down some greens for my holiday decorating. It is supposed to snow/sleet/rain for the next few days and I wanted to get the greens before all the branches are weighed down.
I headed right to the big pile of branches left from the recent tree that fell down. I snipped a lot of nice little branches of different greenery.
Sometimes procrastination pays off. Since I have never cut down all of my dead flowers, I have tons of interesting seed heads, like these black-eyed Susans:
what is that white feathery stuff......I just hate when I forget the name of a plant......it happens every fall/winter. .. as soon as I am done gardening, my mind moves to other things...............ahhh...it just came to me.........astilbe!
At the moment I have no idea what I will do with all of this. I am posting it now so that I will be forced to do something with it. That is one of the great things about a blog. In order to have something to post, I must actually turn all of these branches into some sort of decoration now that I have said I will. I am hoping to create a few beautiful arrangements soon. Right now I have to go check on the laundry.
