IM TAKING ADVANTAGE OF MY TREE TRIMMINGS AND NATURE BY DOING A LITTLE EARLY FALL DECORATING ON THE FRONT PORCH WITH CRABAPPLES!
I had no intentions of starting my fall decorating yet, not because I’m not read for a change but because I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to even think about it. I quickly got in the mood after doing a little tree trimming on our crabapple tree. That darn tree has been a nuisance on more than one occasion with it’s low hanging branches. I’ve about killed myself trying to mow under it and one time I even caught my head on a branch and was ripped right off the mower, so now I’m wiser and when I see low branches I give the tree a hair cut.
Rather than toss the branches into the compost bin I decided to salvage a few that had beautiful crimson and yellow clusters of fruit. It took me longer to trim the tree than it did to create this little arrangement, but I’m safe once again from any lawn mower accidents. I know It sure doesn’t feel like fall the last few days here in Michigan. The temps and humidity have been just awful, worse than the peak of summer. I’m certainly ready for a cool down that’s for sure. My favorite season as far as my wardrobe goes is fall, I love all the layers and the warm color tones.
I’ve had a mama and baby deer almost every night standing under the crabapple tree eating the low hanging apples, it’s such a beautiful sight to watch. I guess I need to give them a taste myself, I guess I just assumed they’d be sour but what do I know maybe deer like sour apples. I know they sure are attractive, the tree is just glowing with the stunning colors of the apples.
The blue and green pumpkins I started are coming along nicely but so far they look like white baby boos to me. So I may have those to use in my fall decorating this year, but I sure was wanting the beautiful muddy blue and green tones that I planted. There’s no way the wrong seeds were in two different packages. Maybe they just need more time to mature…..I guess I’ll just have to wait and see. Thanks for stopping by today, I’ll be back next with an episode of Talk Till Dawn and after that the exterior shed reveal.
