Oh My Gosh Man
how do I
a festive porch
and possibly my favorite festive porch is the autumn porch
we are surrounded in our little farming community with
crops and crops and crops of
that we take our machete and chop
they only need an old dairy bucket and some yellow mums to go with
but you know me...I can't stop there
gotta have a bit of fun and spookiness!
and can you just not get enough of mums?
this year I found some seeds from Mike in a drawer
they must have been 20 years old
but they worked!
this is my first punkin' crop
you know who I miss?
I miss so badly my old friend
Ray...and his 1960ish chevy pickup
filled to the brim with pumpkins
gosh I miss him and think of him often every October
he would have loved to have sold me pumpkins for 822
I think I was his best customer!
makes me want to buy a turquoise truck and sell pumpkins!
last year I tied some corn and maize to my porch posts
but this year
(thank you Loi)
I have added
which reminds me
do you bring your plants in for the winter?
I admit I am not only a cheapskate
but I love the challenge of keeping them alive all year
like this one...I cannot bear to think of this lovely freezing
seriously...do the harsh cold winds hurt your heart?
you know why?
and between the beginning and
a small mishap
life unfolds on our porches
my next favorite thing is a festive window box
ok...I tend to get distracted
