I am scheduled to go back to work next Thursday. Discussions have been texting back and forth on really cracking down on our students to wear their masks 100% of the time… Pray, would you?, that I don’t get the virus again and that our school can get through this and get healthy. Thank you! 💜

Planting New Urns for Fall

 

Falling in love… I have been on the hunt for a while for a couple of beautiful urns to brighten up our front yard. I like the idea of planting them for each season and this is the perfect time of year for showing off autumn’s beautiful offerings…



I was thrilled to find two identical cement urns near me at a beautiful nursery Schmitz Garden Center in Flower Mound, Texas, over the October 12th-Columbus Day long weekend. I got these for a good price, I think. 

Rarely do I ask at nursery centers, but this day I did:  I asked if they could do a little better on the price if I took both, and I was given an extra 15% off.

The nurseryman loaded them up for me and on home we went!

On Monday, I wheeled our heavy garden cart around front and went to work trying to wrestle an urn out of the middle of our SUV. You see, the back hatch latch is broken (again…) so we can’t open the tailgate. It’s a cheap plastic part and Mr. Ethereal has to have a day to pull off the inside parts and replace the thing. It broke the weekend before…

So what do you think of the urns?? They are about 14″ tall by 24″ across and about 6″ deep. At first I was thinking maybe they were too shallow, but after planting them and realizing you can just pile up more dirt in the center, now I am really excited about them!


I really like how they look after planting them with just a few pansies, one big deep pink mum, and a little hanging vine in each urn. They add a nice formality to our small front porch area.


This photograph is really overexposed but it shows our fall porch well… Happy and balanced!


Totally in love… Now to convince Mr. Ethereal we need to expand out the left-hand garden bed to make both sides match better. 😉


A nice way to say hello to our second fall in our still 
new-to-us home… 🍂🍁

Our Fall Garden and Potting Bench

 

Welcome to  our autumn garden! Fall’s cooler days have brought about a renaissance of blooms on the roses and all of the plants have perked up. My joy this weekend has been photographing the season’s changes and a bit of decorating on the potting bench…

Friday after work, I stopped by Lowe’s garden center and picked up more cement pavers for the pathway to match the ones put in by previous owners. I also picked up more bricks to use around and under potted plants here in the back garden. 



Hubby and I went out to lunch on Saturday and he found some much needed sneakers at our local sporting goods store. We then stopped by First United Methodist Church’s annual pumpkin patch, of which I totally forgot to put any pumpkins in the above display… 🎃
After two more trips to Lowe’s on Sunday, I was finally ready to decorate our potting bench for fall! Charles had seen some mini bales of hay (identical to these) last weekend so I looked for some to bring home. These are perfect for fall displays and will be useful for packing around plants as protection as the nights really begin to dip into the 30’s and below. 

The Generous Gardener is just beginning its fall blooming… It is a soft 
pink normally but is showing off as almost totally white. It is also the 
lead photo of this post. In the middle of fighting white flies and 
spider mites…
Seventy five degrees was the high on Sunday with Saturday’s high coming in at just over 80 degrees. It was an absolutely perfect weekend to be out of doors working in the yard! 

Remember in the olden days when we called this Indian Summer? That cooler time between the heat of summer but not quite the cold of later fall? 

It is still my absolute favorite time to garden… Not politically correct anymore to call it that anymore, but I still think of it this way.

I moved Sceptre d’Isle back to its usual spot near the brick wall and close to our Garden Maiden. I need to look for new plants to try here in this area since the two camellias, which did sooo well last year, croaked either from over-watering or just from the stress of summer’s savage heat and high humidity.

I lost one small rose, one of the new ones I had bought this past spring, also due to the summer heat. Thankfully, the older mature roses all made it just fine, other than spider mites (which I didn’t catch early enough).


We have been back building out in the garden as we move around the corner of the house out into the side garden. There is an area at the far back corner, which since the addition of the water softener unit last year, seems to me to be a perfect place for utilitarian uses. 

I’ll share more of that area later this week as we finish up this newest project but here’s how the pathway is coming along. You can see how “new” the pavers I just purchased look in contrast to the other older ones which were sunk into the ground. Time and rain’s muddiness should even that up, though.

We moved the potting bench on Saturday to protect it from the coming rainstorms. Eventually it will go inside the new larger shed, when we finally decide which one we want.

As summer sales happened in August, I found a couple of chair cushions I liked so although they don’t exactly fit the bench, they are very comfortable and add a nice navy and white to the area. The colors repeat the colors in the weave of the bistro chairs, which looks smart.

It was fun to look around for items to place out on the potting bench to dress it up! I found the larger French pot at Hobby Lobby early in the summer and it matches another smaller white one I found several years ago.

So that’s how things are going in our neck of the woods. How is your fall gardening going? Anything new growing? Have you begun decorating for fall and/or Halloween?  Let me know what you’ve been up to in the comments below. 💝








Happy gardening,

Sunday Sentiments ~ Our September Garden and Fall’s To-Do List

 

Fall is definitely falling around the North Texas/DFW area and with it Mr. Ethereal and I have been busy working on a list of projects to finish before the ground freezes, the air gets too nippy, and just some general clean-up. Our first project is the one he made for me ~ it is this lovely garden bench…


Using treated and untreated pine lumber, he built this as a special present while I was gone to California. This was his Labor Day weekend project and yes he labored! I love it and appreciate the love he put into it. 💏
Next up is the short pathway project I am noodling. This would be a transition area between the eventual artificial turf under the two backyard oak trees and the real grass out along the south side of the house.
I found this garden show on YouTube and this was a segment on some show, most likely BBC’s Gardener’s World. (Watching YouTube again, I watched an episode of  P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home the next day, it’s his pathway. Just saw the pathway again!) 
I like this pathway for its wonkiness and odd lengths of stone in the pathway. I also like the way it “swoops” around! Ours will swoop around either side of the tree. (Did I already mention that? School brain…)
This past weekend Mr. Ethereal helped me snap a chalkline and paint a straight line across the yard as a guideline for laying stones. Previous owners had placed a number of these approx. 8″ x 16″ x 2″ cement pavers vertically in the ground creating a straight garden along the south side of the house. 
I think it got too hot over there so the garden idea was abandoned. Hubby pulled these pavers up one day about a month ago and stacked them since he knew I’d probably reuse and repurpose them.

Here are three ideas of how I thought to lay this transition area out: 

1) normal horizontal brick layout (middle upper left, along chalkline)
2) off at an angle on the left and right sides of the further oak tree (top of the layout)
3) herringbone pattern (bottom middle) ~ Mr. Ethereal says I ought to do this one as “payback” for making him lay our travertine on the diagonal at our Big House in Cali… Lol!

Which one do you like best? I kind of like the angled around the tree best, which really only has the left side shown (top section above the chalkline). On Linda Vater’s YouTube channel, if you ever watch her garden show you’ll see how she uses a mishmash of pavers and brick together and I really like the “found look.” 

The added wonkiness of putting in a brick here or there to the longer pavers just really works with my repurpose style!

Not much is blooming right now and the little canteloupe plant that is bursting with small yellow flowers may not  have enough time left in the season to produce fruit before frosts and winter set in, but it’s giving its best!
With two weeks of cooler weather (just into the mid- to upper-80’s today, but has been in the 70’s), the supertunias are back blooming. The roses are putting out buds and should have a nice fall showing soon.


For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.

Isaiah 61:11

 


Other September projects

Our side panels on the garage were rotted down at the bottom from years of rain, so after Charles watched a bunch of YouTube videos on insulating your basic garage door with heavy compacted styrofoam and got that project done, he moved onto fixing these. I picked up the two 8′ x 10″ x 2″ boards at Lowe’s about a month ago. We let them dry under a fan in the really hot garage (was still about 100 degrees out then), then painted them with the leftover outdoor trim from the previous homeowners’ stash).

I’ll probably share this in another post since I don’t have those photos pulled off my phone yet, but it turned out well! Now to fix the mess of a garage door… Previous homeowners, in order to sell the home, used cans of spray paint to repaint the big door. (Should have just left it white…)

Wall decor

Last week as we held this month’s Reading Nook Pinterest Challenge, you could just see a peek out the window at the newly installed iron wall decoration along the garage wall out back.


I picked up this pretty iron wall decor piece from H. Potter garden center actually over a year ago. I really wanted this piece as our backyard gate, but Mr. Ethereal informed me we really needed a 4′ gate to bring things in and out of the yard, so… This was a no-go for the gate idea… 😞 

But then this year I thought of having a water fountain feature along this wall surrounded by plants and this would be perfect behind one!


Our sweet tall lady gets to stand here for now! 💝
H. Potter sent all the hanging brackets but it would have stood 4″ from the garage wall and I wanted it close to the wall since this area is pretty narrow, so Mr. Ethereal found some half-round silver brackets in his tool parts and I faux-painted those to match the hammered metal look of the wrought iron wall decor to use for hanging instead. 

The boxing when this iron piece arrived was well packed and all the nuts and bolts were there with clear instructions on how to put it together. It also comes with a separate piece that attaches at the bottom to push it into the ground (looks like a pitchfork, actually), but the cement along the wall prevented my using that piece. I would definitely recommend buying any of H. Potter’s wall decor pieces and will look for more in the future! It is sturdily welded and well painted; I am quite pleased with it!!!

Totally loving how it looks with our Garden Lady in front of it! Time to make her a new head crown for fall… 


Well, back to laying pavers in the yard… Been a busy month both at school and at home, and it’s not quite over yet. More to come… 🍂

I am feeling a bit fall-ish and I bet you are, too! This happens every August as I tire of the heat of summer and especially on days when there is just a hint of autumn in the air… So, with that we will have a few fall ideas featured this week.

Magical Summer Evening Entertaining Out-of-Doors in the Garden…

Entertaining out-of-doors in summer is one of the best things about summertime! Here in the DFW area of Texas, nights  cool off into the 80’s and are perfect for having friends and family over for cookouts, pizza pies baked in outdoor ovens, and for toasting marshmallows over campfires. On this night, our library table was brought from inside and set with dining ease in mind…


You may recall that earlier this summer I shared this post about easy party ideas as part of a Pinterest Challenge. This tablescape was fun to photograph as I went for simplicity with just a few snacks, just a few items on the dining table, and a simple pot of flowers plopped on the table, straight from the nursery. 



Simple chargers made of painted tin add their elegance underneath festive paper plates. And those plates cost $2.99 for a pack of 24, I think. Perfect for outdoor entertaining with kids or adults! Cloth napkins and real water glasses were the only “upgrades” here.



Lighting is simple with the addition of Edison lights strung together and zip-tied to tree limbs, a couple of tealights on the table and a few candles in metal holders in the garden flowerbed nearby…

*Special note: make sure to square knot each connection from one light string to the next. I didn’t do that at first, and the long swag from tree to tree came undone… I had to replace six lightbulbs and it was good that each of the sets came with extras!



Sorry about the soft blur in some of these photographs… My camera is just a basic DSLR and not really meant for low light. I hope to upgrade one of these days. 

I like how these pics came out anyhow. The candlelight in these outdoor stands is magical… 💝



Soft and romantic, the addition of a couple of indoor chairs combined with the French café chairs makes for a nice combination. 

A nice contrast ~ wide -vs- narrow view
We had just had a hard summer rain so the limestone bricks are in their usual muddy state but this just adds to the casual garden scene. Our plans include putting in artificial turf back here where grass doesn’t grow well below the shade provided by these two oak trees with pavers staggered between the real and artificial grasses.



Framing the view

The central bed of boxwood and holly balls are filling in nicely with the addition of this spring’s transplanted iris. I plan to add in more annuals for color next spring. 


I love looking back on the house and it looks particularly pretty at night! I think when all the pavers are set for potted areas and more plants are brought in, and the sprinklers are converted from tall park-style sprayers for watering grass to lines of drip irrigation for garden beds, this will be especially nice for entertaining… and it will be easier and mean less hand-watering.


This year our visits have been just a few friends stopping by to switch-out borrowed books or for me to sign a check for our philanthropic group (IOOF). Next year as vaccines become available we hope to have friends over a lot more often. 


My favorite photograph… Still love the Martha Stewart pale yellow linen drapery fabric used to create these chair cushions. These cushions are reversible with a deep red paisley on the other side. I made them with summer and winter in mind.


Tonight’s virtual visit will have to do for now… 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your summer! I felt the first kiss of fall this week with a 66 degree morning… 

Happy summer evenings, friends!
