The Asters are blooming. Asters are very complicated group of plants. Trying to properly name them is futile. The are just Asters….Purple Asters and White Asters.
They are beautiful in the last rays of sunlight.
We know that Fall is here. The nights are downright cool. The days are getting shorter rapidly, leaves are falling off the trees in our yard. You can mow and mulch them up and a few hours later there are more on the ground.
I mowed again yesterday because we are supposed to get rain. What would Labor Day weekend be without rain? You can usually count on it to rain at least one of the three days. I washed and rinsed all my glass flowers…they are ready to sparkle for a few more weeks.
The Christmas Ornaments are finished! The special boxes that I ordered were delivered by Lumber Mason ( our great nephew) one afternoon as the UPS Driver is an idiot. Most of the ornaments are packed away in boxes, I ran out of bubble wrap. Some ornaments are already on their way to Oregon by special courier. We are glad to be done with carving that project!! When it gets closer to Christmas I have a few to give away.
