Well, here it is FALL. Fall began with nearly two days of down pouring rain. Enough to make everything soggy, heavy, and FLOP. I could barely navigate my Potager before the rains and after the big flop fallout, a clear cut path was not to be found. I just don’t have the heart to cut down those last beautiful blooms of Mexican Sunflowers and gigantic Marigolds and add them to the compost heap, but I need to clean up and whip the garden into some sort of shape before winter or my spring clean up will be way too overwhelming. That decides it: chop but eureka! How about an outdoor bouquet? I have some beautiful crocks my mother gave me that promptly filled with rain and have been full ever since. The birds have taken to this accidental water cooler but it is now a beautiful fall bouquet.
I have an extra large watering can, too – another bouquet? Why not?
There, instant fall decorating born from the fallout. Welcome FALL.
