Hola Cottage Fix friends! We have sun, warm bright glorious sun. Yesterday the clouds finally decided to break apart and sunshine filled my day. To celebrate I took Miss Paisley on a field trip to our local garden center for plants and pumpkins. She was a big hit, somewhat of a crazy dog though after four days of stormy weather! I’m sure she gets that from me.
I picked out a couple of fairy tale pumpkins and also a large carving pumpkin for the kiddos. They still enjoy it! I went ahead and brought home an English boxwood too since we lost one in the heat of the summer. By the time I realized it was on the way out and started to water it was already crispy.
I always get overwhelmed when I head to the garden shop, there are so many beautiful things. This time I went with a plan in my head and stuck to it. The carving pumpkin (didn’t make it in the picture) and boxwood are for the front entry steps and the pale yellow pansies and fairytale pumpkins I’ll keep on the back patio. It feels like fall.
And that giant pile of firewood in our driveway; Mr. Macho ordered that. He is super excited about it and I’m certain his muscles are growing in anticipation of moving it all to the wood rack. Thank goodness there’s also a strong teenage boy in the house because that pile looks a little too large for a mere blogger such as myself. Wink.
