Wow! It's the middle of August ALREADY! Hard to believe, the time is just flying by so fast! I know for some it's still summer and some kids are still on summer vacation but I say, 'Welcome Autumn!' (Autumn really begins on September 22nd, at 10:29p.m. this year.)
|Loving the zucchini and green pepper harvest!!|
I always think of autumn in August, it's just the way it is. With the night air getting cooler and the leaves on the trees starting to turn gold, the garden plants have stopped producing new growth, it's time to start planning for fall.
I get so excited planning for my favorite time of the year too! I want to start making fall decor items like painted wooden signs and painted gourds, decorate the house in fall colors and plaids, gather up bales of straw and stack tons of mums, decorative gourds, Indian corn and pumpkins on them, so many gorgeous ways to display fall beauty!
