One Last Picture of...



...my pretty yellow mums. It is supposed to be down to 29 degrees tonight - BRRRRRRRR.... and I was afraid the freeze might get them. I will cover them - that might help. They are jus' still so pretty - I hate to loose them. Just a suggestion for ya though - I strongly recommend this particular variety of mums. This was the first year we had grown this kind - yellow "Bethany". It is a season extender mum - which means they bloom later and longer into the season. As many of the other varieties have already faded - these are at their peak. So if you can remember that name "Bethany" - you might want to pick some up for next year - they are one of MY new favorites.

You know how I explained to you all earlier that all mums have women's names - and I said there were none named "Cathy" that I was aware of - well, my dear, sweet friend Amy e-mailed me a picture of a beautiful orange-bronze mum named "Cathy" - that I believe was featured in Southern Living. Thank you Amy - I so enjoyed that - I'm thrilled to know it exists - I'll have to hunt them down for next year. Thanks for sharing with me.

You all have a beautiful and blessed Tuesday - I believe we will be carving pumpkins tonight!

Blessings,
Cathy Cobblestone

I will remember that for next fall. Wow, 29 degrees, I do not think we have 29 degrees yet. I know a cold front is on the way.
I enjoy all your pictures!

Cathy,
Sad to see all the fall colors go, I really think they should stay longer, but God must have been in a hurry to get started with the colder weather.
My yellow mums still look pretty good, they should hold another week.
Went to the thrift yesterday, you would think that would be enough for a while, but oh nooooo, I would love to go again today. BUT that won't be, Richard has the car today so I have just been putting everything I can find around the house into the scanner, its my new sickness. I should be fine in a few days.
Your site is always nice to come to so don't stop posting.

Have a great rest of the week!
