We finally have fall weather and I love this time of year. Oklahoma temperatures wane back and forth from fall to summer with a quick freeze mixed in just to taunt me! It's such a challenge for gardeners. I haven't planted any outdoor fall plants yet but did manage to make a little bouquet with some grocery store sunflowers and mums for Mom's bedside table.
Fall is my favorite season and I wish it lasted for so much longer! The rich colors, smells of cinnamon and pumpkin spice make our home so cozy. I did light the fireplace once when the temperature dipped down into the thirties. I managed to get most of my patio plants moved into the greenhouse for safe keeping and still have some rearranging to do to make it easy to water everything
I waxed and sprayed some pumpkins to deter the squirrels from munching on them and hope I can get them to last until Halloween.
I'm planning on decorating the front porch tomorrow and getting some tulips in the ground.
