Fall, Part Two
It's the planting of mums in the upstairs window box
To add a bit of fall color to the front
The red begonias we keep for red is "fall-ish" and so we get "double duty"
from our summer annuals
(which justifies my putting pansies there in the Spring!)
All one color -- a gold color
for I think it's the best fall color for mums
light enough to be seen from the road
yet muted enough to be fall.
Oh, and you may see the jack o lanterns peeking out from under the bench!
They do that sometimes --
They should be turned around until the week before Halloween.
I wonder who put them that way?
Now to keep the mums watered so that we can have their bloom as long as possible.
And soon after the calendar turns to October,
we shall have Fall, Part Four!
Part Three is Mother's Nature's contribution
the fallen leaves on sidewalks!
