This is the time of year when my lovely summer porch becomes not so lovely.
The weather is very dry and hot and some of my flowers look pretty worn-out and tired — rather like I feel!
I always look forward to September when I add a pot or two of Mums, which are a little hardier and can take the colder nights of fall. Life this last week has been as busy as ever and a few nights ago as I headed to bed, I went to turn the porch light off and noticed this happy yellow pot of Mums sitting on the chair next to my door.
My sweet husband (who btw, is very into perennials these days) went and got some Mums for me. It makes me wonder who I could surprise with a happy little pot of Mums.
Life is good.
