I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.We got some warmer temperatures and a little rain here in the hills.
The leaves are changing so fast now in the woods and it appears that this fall they are going to have brighter colors than last years.
September seemed to fly pass so quickly and now we are into October with its Fall Festivals all over the state and the “Pumpkin Show” starts October 17th when we go to see who raised the giant pumpkin for the year.
While out in the garden it is time to clean off some of my flowerbeds for the season.
There are some anemones still in bloom and of course the Chrysanthemums. A few of mine bloomed last month and are finishing up but I still have three in bloom now.
The Toad lilies are finished blooming now.
The amaryllis that were growing outdoors for the summer were pulled up and the leaves cut and the bulbs were brought into the house so they could dry. They will then be potted up again for winter blooms. I hope they bloom this winter but I have had little luck trying to get them to rebloom for me in previous attempts. This is the last year I giving it another try. If no blooms this winter….. into the trash they go. LOL!
I think I said that last year but I just hate to give up on anything.
In the woods berries of red look pretty on the Dogwoods and other berry laden shrubs and trees.
And it is time to think about getting some Pansies to replace those sad and tired looking plants in the window boxes.
