I hope everyone is enjoying their extended weekend. With the Labor Day holiday and September comes the realization that Fall is beginning. A little sooner here this year I think with the leaves on the trees already getting a tinge of Fall colors.
A few more roses throw up some blooms here and there.
Crimson Bouquet is the sweetest rose for fragrance and I would grow it for that reason alone. It also means it is time to dry those last blooms for potpourri for winter.
The month of September also means the beginning of the Fall Festivals around here. The first one my daughter and I always love to attend is the “Backwoods Festival” near Thornville, Ohio. The Backwoods Festival is one of the largest crafting display events in Ohio and begins Friday, September 14 at 10 a.m. and runs through Sunday September 16th.
This is also where you can get your Fall decorating supplies and Christmas too.
They also cater to the gardener with lots of wonderful ideas and garden decor.
September is when the daylight hours diminish faster and it is time to start planning for those bulbs you want to plant for next spring when you will be longing for color…. any color after a long winter.
So welcome September but I am not one of those gardeners who is glad to see you and the end of summer. I would just as well skip over you and go right into April again.
Everyone have a wonderful week ahead and……….
