Mums the word....

Isn't it a lovely fall time of the year so far. I just planted some mums...it took me awhile before I was able to get them here (in So. Calif.-we are behind the learning curve for some reason!)

I planted these in containers on my front porch....
Love to sit here and look out at our garden (hubby planting of course) while I sip my coffee (pumpkin latte!) with cream. I live out in the country girls, so Starbucks is a good 35 minutes away!
Here is my little buddy who watches the crows land on the cornstalks...he is not doing a very good job being a scarecrow...

My little red wagon with a few small mum plants. After they bloom they get planted somewhere, and they come back season after season bigger and better than ever. In fact I have to trim them back!

Wish you could come over for a visit!
Blessings,
Debbie

I wish I could come for a visit too and home brewed coffee is the only way to go. Starbucks is a waste of money - I'd rathter spend it on prims!!

How did I miss this post? Anyway, LOVE your mums and your scarecrow. Wish I was there sipping a pumpkin latte with you and chatting away!! What fun!

I'm surrounded by cornfields too. No starbucks for us. Would love a long chat with a pumpkin latte.
Maybe you could give me some insight on coping with our daughter being gone. I missed her a lot this week!!
Thanks for brightening my day!
