It has been such a refreshing day today! I spent the day working on my flower beds! During a trip to Wal-mart, I couldn't help notice the wonderful display of fall mums that had arrived! I couldn't resist! The day was so beautiful and I can't think of a better way to say goodbye to Summer than planting mums with the help of my children! Justin was busy mowing the lawn!
I love the spectacular color!
A little stone birdbath
Keegan (my eldest): In charge of sweeping the porch, carrying rocks, and keeping an eye on Logan and Daisy the beagle:)
I planted some of the mums in Terra cotta pots, and some in the ground. I thought that pots in the bed offered some interest. I am no gardener by any means! Here in Missouri there is no shortage of rocks so I incorporated them into my beds. I hope to get some kale and pansies when I can. Budgetary restraints ;)
Logan (my youngest): In charge of playing in the birdbath, running around with daisy the beagle, and digging holes with a trowel
I've always heard to buy the flowers that haven't bloomed yet, but I just loved the color! Instant gratification! I got what I considered middle of the road, a lot of blooms and a lot of buds!
