It sure does feel like it. Saturday was beautiful and there was a breeze that felt cool and fresh, so we took advantage of the weather and did some planting in the garden. I’m excited about getting it in shape again.
We chose some English daisies, which are small and great for our hanging container.
I’ve never planted Lavender but finally bought some since they are frost resistant and the water needs are low. Hoping to get more lavender plants.
Blue Fescue is drought resistant and does good in freezing weather. I’m thinking I’ll need more of those since the weather forecast doesn’t look too promising for rain.
And finally wanted to share some critters that are always showing up on our patio. I’m guessing they’re millipedes, and they creep me out!!
This is one of my treasures that I received for Christmas. Her name is Rosalinda. She plays music. My daughter said the song she plays is very stereotypical, but that’s ok. La Cucaracha is a very familiar song to a lot of us and the song became popular during the Mexican Revolution, so it has relevance.
These guys are ready to go back into hibernation till next year.
My garden looks very sad. The frost did a good job of damaging my plants. The only ones left standing are my pansies. They’re bright and cheerful, which gives me hope.
And then, there are all the leaves that need to be raked, but we’ll save them for another day.
So much to do, I don’t know where to begin.

A few years ago I decided to start buying the Target Christmas dinnerware; little did I know that they were going to discontinue the pattern. So all that I was able to get was 4 salad plates and 4 saucers, not even 1 cup could I find at any of the Target stores. Each year I procrastinated about purchasing the pieces until it was too late. My husband always scolds me when I say, “Oh, I’ll get it later.”, because later becomes never. How many of you have done that?
Well now I have to put them together with my depression glass, which looks ok, but I can’t really use them at Christmas time because there won’t be enough for the 12 of us. Another lesson learned!
I posted about an apron a while back made with kitchen towels and I’m happy to say I finished sewing it. I promised myself that I would wear aprons in the kitchen from now on because I have ruined many of my tops with grease stains. One of my lovely daughters agreed to model the apron. She looks ready to do my chores.
I had just picked some oranges and lemons, that have been out in this frosty weather, that we’ve had for 5 days. So hopefully they’re still good enough to enjoy.
