For years I have had a love/hate relationship with Fall. Yes, I know the changing of the leaves are pretty and who doesn’t love going on a hayride or to a pumpkin patch. BUT, I can very easily get hung up on the fact that Fall means the growing season is over and the l o n g … l o n g … L O N G Indiana winter is soon to come.
So, today I have decided to change the name of this season to Autumn. A U T U M N … has a much richer and more pleasing ring to it. Almost poetic… The more I think of the word Autumn, the more I think that I can embrace the season that is just around the corner.
No spring nor summer’s beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face….
What do you think? Can a change in the name make a difference? I’m sure gonna try because I am surrounded by people who L O V E fall and I don’t want to be a party pooper.
I gotta tell you the whole truth, there really is another reason why I feel differently about this season … You’ve probably guessed it …. Mr. H has a birthday! So, how can you not LOVE the season when you received one of your very richest blessings.
Yes, Mr. H will soon be 1 and by the way things are going now, he is just about ready to take on the world. And, we just might let him!
THIS WEEK IN THE GARDEN
Our weather continues to be almost perfect— a tad hot but with plenty of rain, so we are are still getting some amazing blooms.
Now I need to work on my love/hate relationship with Mums! Am I alone???
Hope you are having a superb week and…

Don’t have mums, yet love your thoughts and bloom thyme!
Wildly cutting down peonies that are beginning fall mildew, so OUT, OUT, OUT! One more group to go! xo
A woman on a mission. My garden is looking like a jungle. Time to get I machete out! The great things about jungle season is that you get to be creative about where all the extras will go! Have a great day my friend. xo
I hear you, sister.
Yes, gardeners have a lot in common I find! Have a great summer day! While you can!!! LOL
Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter! Always has been and should stay that way. Why trivialize our language? Autumn has that rich quality of good communication. Yes! Change it and smile.
Good morning. I think we are on to something! 🙂
Don’t feel the love for mums either. Sort of feel guilt ~ hahaha.
Know what you mean about the fall, but with each season, we have something new to appreciate. Fall roses are so special. Even though the blooms may be smaller, their colors are more intense. We’ll be taking whatever roses are in bloom to our Rose Society’s 6-Pack Rose Show in a little more than a week. It’s a great way to see everyone’s fall roses.
