While planting pansies this weekend . . .
I couldn't help but smile at the beauty of these little flowers.
It felt good to get them all planted before the rain started this morning. You can't beat a good rain to get your freshly planted flowers settled into their new homes. I really want them to be happy because they make me happy with their sweet little faces.
Actually, we've been having such a nice fall that it's hard to not be happy.
The days have been perfect for porch sittin'.
Rocking in the rocker watching the leaves fall while sipping a mug full of warm, spicy cider. :), =), :).
The Sugar Maple tree outside my kitchen window is starting to change. It won't be long until we can sit at the table and look out at a sea of yellow and orange leaves.
And speaking of the kitchen table, this old dough bowl filled with gourds, leaves and acorns from a backyard oak tree is making me smile too. It's such a simple way to bring a little of the outdoors inside.
My husband will be smiling at the breakfast table tomorrow when I serve him a pumpkin spice scone. I must admit I partially bought these for the most adorable packaging. But since he helped me plant all of those pansies, I think I'll roll up my sleeves and lovingly bake him some scones.
He'll never know that all I had to do was add some water and bake.
