We’re lucky to have a little park in our complex, even luckier that it has a rock water feature. I love listening to the trickle of water all summer long from my craft room window.
Yesterday, the garden crew came to rake all the golden leaves and turned off the fountain. Thus signalling the end of a glorious season.
The weather’s taken a bit of a dip today, it really does feel like fall. In fact, it’s only 11 C or 51 F at 2:30pm. I think the forecast for the weekend might be 17 C on Sunday, so back to seasonal then (for us anyways).
I’ve been procrastinating about emptying my garden planters that line our porch. It seems like only yesterday that I hung them up. I’m super tickled that they’ve done so well all summer long. Along with Petals and Blossum, they’ve been a nice bit of color to great us at the door.
I did empty the large pots a few weeks back and bought a giant potted mum for $6.49 at Superstore. It’s the best $6.49 I’ve ever spent because it’s still blooming nicely and looks super cheery at the door.
It’s starting to look a wee bit odd that I still have these colorful plants blooming on our porch while everyone else is putting out pumpkins and Halloween decor. I just can’t bring myself to emptying them while they’re still doing so well. I just think “is it that time already”?
Have you put your summer pots to bed in the shed?
