A weed or a wild flower, depends on my mood

Autumn Gardening

Over the next few days I will be getting the garden ready for fall and winter. At my location this is the time of year that I like the plant chrysanthemums in all of the containers. By Halloween the plants should be big with plenty of blooms. It’s also the time of year where I trim up the shrubs one more time for the winter and do one more feeding for all the plants.

At some point I’d really like to cut out a small piece of land and design a cutting garden. When we lived in Denver I had an area to replant perennials or bulbs that I’d had in containers. Not only was it pretty, but there was a lot of sentimental value as well.

I’ll post a photoÂsoon. 🙂

Gadgets, Fashion and Manners

My husband and I recently watched an episode of “I Want That” on HGTV, and one of the items featured is called a DocuPen. It is a hand held scanner that would be very handy for someone like me who just may be visiting a relatives home, see a family photo on the wall, want a copy and rather than taking a photo of the photo, I could scan it. Neat!

Fall fashion looks relatively calm and classic this year. I love that pointy toe pumps are popular again! They are so much prettier than the huge, chunky, massiveÂmonster square shoes that were popular a few years ago.

A couple of other interesting items…
Here is a good link to Men’s Health online about “Social Graces”.
-Â The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Costume Institute featuring Collection Highlights. (My daughter and I looked through all of them and drooled over some of the dresses from the 17th and 18th centuries.)
