Time for one last Bloomin' Tuesday at Ms Green Thumb Jean's blog. Not much is blooming anymore, so all I have to offer is dried blooms, favorite things, and visiting critters getting ready for Winter.
One of my favorite decorations for Fall is my pumpkin made from barbed wire ~
The bushes are ready to feed the birds for the Winter ~
And the Squirrels are burying acorns anywhere they can dig a hole.
Sometimes, I cut my Hydrangea when the flowers are white, sometimes when they are green, and sometimes not at all. I hot glued green and brown blooms into a styrofoam wreath and wired it to my old screen window for the Winter. It will be interesting how it holds up over the Winter.
I put my trusty old wheelbarrow in the front with pumpkins, a little hay bale, and a bushel basket with pots of Sedum Autumn Joy, Rudbeckia, yellow Mums, Kale, and Purple Fountain Grass in it. A tip I read a couple of weeks ago was to spray your pumpkins with flat polyurethane to keep the squirrels from chewing them up. They haven't gone near it and the pumpkins at the neighbors across the street has been eaten down to the bottom.
I hope you are enjoying Fall where you are. While it's a very pretty time of year, I don't look forward to Winter at all.
