I love these two still life pictures I got last month from Claudia, the table belonged to my Aunt Charlotte and the pumpkins are from our garden. I remember this table from Charlotte’s porch when I was a kid and she always gave it a new coat of orange paint every year. Now I wish I hadn’t stripped it.
Every year when I take the houseplants inside for the winter my house looks so cold and lonely outside. Remember all those pots of Karl Forster grass I planted last spring? I also planted some autumn joy sedum in pots and I moved all of those “winter hardy” plants to the front of my house with the pumpkins. I love it! They can remain there until I decorate for Christmas.
There are also pots of hen and chicks, lavender and other sedums. And I wanted you to see this succulent wreath that I’ve had for a couple years – it did so well this year and I think it will live in the garage over the winter.
It’s a beautiful fall day in North Iowa! Several dogs coming this weekend, I’m spending some time with Jenny before she returns to Louisville and I need to do some shopping. Of course there’s always college football to watch, too. Have a great weekend, Everybody!
