Oh, the last glorious days of summer.
And then Hello to fall.
It has already seemed like fall here.
The weather has turned rather early due to
El Nino and we have been enjoying
"more than usual" rain.
It's time to bake some homemade bread!
Hopefully it will be a little while longer
before we get a frost.
I know it may seem a little late to share about
flower containers. But I thought it might be a perfect
time to mention these.
That way, if you like them, you will have all of fall,
winter and early spring to let your
cans rust outside :)
I save all of my # 10 cans.
They can be used for so many things.
I had these in a pile outside. I'm not even sure
how long they'd been there but I knew
that I wanted to fill their rusty goodness with
some bright, cheery flowers.
To me rust is PERFECT and
I really love that look in my garden
and around my yard.
This is Brutus.
I call him my garden cat.
He is always in the middle of all things
yard work or garden related.
And he is a brute. SO brave.
He's not very nice to the grandkids.
We always have to warn them and now they have given
him the name of "Mean Kitty".
And brave he is.
The other night, he was sitting on my
lap and some coyotes started
howling out in the field somewhere.
He sat up, started growling and wanted outside!
He stayed out on the ledge of the porch
like a little "Guard Cat".
I was more than a little surprised
because he's kind of a baby.
Anyway, you could do so many fun things with these
cans. I just poked a few holes in the bottom and planted
the impatiens in them. They make a nice bright spot
under our currant bushes.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
I hope that your fall begins with
peace and beauty and continues all through those
lovely days of falling leaves,
sweaters, and walks in the cool crisp air.
