Signs of Autumn approaching were every where such as the cool season annual stock. I love stock and it was only a dollar but I didn't buy any. I'm waiting for pansies since my pansies didn't survive during my road trip. Of course there were mums. I started to see mums in garden centers in July. This seemed really early to me. There also were lawn decorations such as scarecrows. I love Fall. I look forward to the leaves changing colors and falling. The array of colors are stunning. I like to walk through the fallen leaves each year and hear them crunch. When we were children we would jump in large piles of leaves. I enjoy the smell of burning wood from home fireplaces as I take a walk through the neighborhood after work and of lighting my first fire at home.
As Autumn approaches it also signals the end of my Summer vacation after Labor day. Back to work and an end to the leisure days of Summer. It's time to start preparing the garden for winter and soon bulb planting.
