So Fashion

Each year the Pantone Color Institute selects color trends.

This Fall color selections included a earthy green color that some labeled Herb.  I love that.

Another of the colors for this season is called Oak Buff, or as I like to call it–mustard.

When I turned over these mushrooms that I found today on a walk I couldn’t help but smile.

Mother Nature is the best designer!

Autumns Light

Autumn Light

I’m never ready for summers departure.

Fall is here whether I’m ready or not.

Autumn does bring beautiful light to take images here in the garden.

The humble clover is as pretty as a rose in this morning light.

Make Mine Natural


A few times a year I bring out my wreath making skills.

A crate filled with dried Rose Hips from last autumn became this years decorations.

Wire small bundles of dried material onto a wire wreath frame.

Keep the bundles close together and wrap with a continuous wire spool.

I was invited to write a blog post for Gardening Know How!

The Editors let me choose the topic of my choice and I wanted to keep the post true to how I write here.

Garden images and a few words.

A story about how I became the caretaker to these garden trugs.

If you care to leave a comment after you read the story it would be appreciated.
