Well, its inevitable... Autumn is here at White Corner's. But that's okay 'cause God says everything has a season.. So, I up for embracing this time of change...I set about cleaning up the yard today...and adding a few 'touches'
Where we live is so rural! It's not uncommon to see these in peoples drive ways...we have learned the rhythm of this country side. You see these it's either plowing season to plant or plowing season to turn the earth under for winter...
I have to grin going by the fields now a days, it's like the farmers are playing in the fields! You will see singles rows harvested...and the silly farmers harvesting circles like this. Crops circles anyone?lol!
Yes, I was able to get some chores done. You know guys, this is a good time to get a jump on the weeds and fertilizing for spring. I didn't do this last year so we will see how it goes. I'll keep you posted!
We put to 'bed' some of our other lawn furniture. I'm sad, nothing is better than siting out on a warm summers evening under 'fairy' lights playing cards with the family and friends. Ahh...next year.
Yup, the play set gets it's awning taken down. Now is time to set out and plant your fall bulbs. I will be adding daffodils and some more tulips this year. Oh yeah, just another tip... plant what ever color tulips you want, but for some reason add the hearty red ones! A hint given to me by my 'master gardener' friend. She stated that red helps keep the other ones healthy, I have and each year they have come back just as lovely.
Well, lastly... as others have beautifully shown...mums add just the right 'fall' display...these are at the back door...I will be getting some for the front next week. Oh yeah, if you guys have the 'second season' pansies in your neighborhood...pick some up! Down south, they add 'winter color' all through the season! Here in the W I , they will last till the first good long frost and come back!! I can't wait!!
