It's time for Plantin'...Again

Yes, the seasons are beginning to change here a bit and people are getting the bug to decorate for fall. I think I'll start mine this weekend as well. Here are a few things that will help get you started...
...under the umbrella today...
...beautiful "purple Baron" millet that will soon have deep purple cattail like blooms...



...patio sunflowers - perfect for pots -'cause they stay short...



...one of my favorites - ornamental cabbage and kale...just getting ready to make their colorful centers...



...or you can be like some - and get them already planted for you - just grab 'em and go...



...so happy plantin' my friends.

I'll show you more planting ideas for fall flowers next week - we are getting ready for our annual "Fall Harvest" celebration which will be next weekend. Oh there is so much to do - wish you all were close enough to help me get ready - like pick pumpkins, tie up Indian Corn - make fodder shocks, hunt down bittersweet - we'd have such a great time - a lot of work but a lot of fun too. Just will me your good energy over the next few days so I can get it all done! And if you are close enough to come - please do - we'd love to have you!
Happy Labor Day weekend everybody - enjoy your family and friends!
Blessings,
Cathy
