This is likely the busiest season, with all the outdoor preparations for winter: storm windows up, raking leaves, final weeding, mulching plants, storing garden tools, picking apples and pumpkins. Although we had a bumper crop of apples from our six trees, we only had one pumpkin!
In addition to all the outdoor activities I have been busy preparing for an upcoming “Christmas Marketplace” along with one of my DF’s. (I’ll post details in another blog entry.)
My “autumn decorating”, therefore, was rather minimalistic:
The chrysanthemums were a very thoughtful gift from our next door neighbour. I love how they so perfectly matched the colours in the wreath. I purchased the pumpkins since ours wasn’t quite ripe when I did this display.
