Pumpkins and Mums and Cotton Oh My!
When I snapped this picture, I realized that my fall door wreath is looking rather sad. I may have to replace it or perk it up a bit. I will be going to Pineapples on Thursday so I will see if they have something pretty. I love all their wreaths and unique door decor. I am still waiting on the curbing guy to show up. Several of us neighbors are getting a faux brick curbing put around our flower beds. That metal trim has bothered me since we moved in six years ago so it is about time for it to GO. I have not put out any mums or pansies as I wait for that little landscaping job to be finished. My variegated hostas are dying back but the green ones are looking great.
And as Alabama is the Heart of Dixie, I wanted to share this picture showing a field of cotton that is near by.
I see this field on the days I pick up Kendall and Landon from school. I just had to stop and snap a picture the other day. This year the cotton yield has been very good but the price on cotton is down so the farmers are just hoping they will make a profit on their work this year. Poor farmers...they work so hard and sometimes it just does not work out for them. I always think of Laura in the Little House books as she told herself she would never marry a farmer for this very reason. However she ate those words.:)
I shared this photo on Instagram the other day...if any of yall would like to be Instagram friends, send me a request. I am arl5n5! Priscilla at Priscillas is so good to post a picture a day and I am trying to do better about that!! I love seeing Priscilla'a hand work...she is one of the fastest cross stitchers I know!! And I admire that so much.
Have a good day friends...looks like summer is back here in NoAla...84 today!!
