It’s time to change my window boxes over to fall. The summer flowers were looking pretty pitiful anyway so I was ready to yank them out and have something fresh to look at. I ran across a great deal at Lowes, mums for $1 so that’s what I decided to go with.
I thought they fit in with all the other mums on the porch so it was an easy update. I happened to get up at sunrise and take these photos. I really like the pretty glow that the morning has when just enough sunlight is hitting the side of the cabin.
This is my last sunflower bloom of the season. It happened to be a stray that came up all on it’s own in my strawberry patch. I just love it when something unexpected and beautiful happens. I thought it would never bloom because the deer kept giving it a midnight trim, but finally the moved on to something new (probably my vegetable garden) and the sunflower had a chance to grow.
The last thing I have to do is cut down all the herbs you see in this photo. We have a log that needs to be replace right beside the window so I will cut them all back and move the root balls to a temporary spot for the winter until hubby gets the log replaced. We got a call from the sawmill that the logs we need have been cut, so we now just have to take the trailer north and pick them up. I sure hope the weather holds out long enough to get the work done, that’s always a gamble in Michigan.
