Even though it was 90 degrees today I planted fall mums. I have faith. I know in my heart that cooler weather will come ( and stay) eventually.
Planting those mums brought back memories of my mom. When I was about five or six years old she grew those big yellow mums the size of tea cups. Every fall the local florist would buy the flowers. The local high school's colors were blue and gold and all the high school girls would wear corsages to the homecoming football game. A big yellow mum, with a blue pipe cleaner D and shiny blue ribbons, my mom's flowers made a lot of high school girls happy.
I love the smell of mums, marigolds, any of those flowers in that family. It is fresh and herbal and the scent is a great natural bug repellent. I plant them in the spring and fall. Today, I planted yellow ones ( in memory of my mom) and purple ones ( because purple is my favorite color).
Jordan and I also made home made peanut butter today, yummy! HoneyCrisp apples and home made peanut butter, the best snack ever.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
