Happy Halloween!

I've gone pumpkin-crazy this year to make up for all the years I didn't buy them.  Plus there are such beautiful, funky, colorful ones available now!
I took this with my new I-phone.  In the urns are ornamental cabbage and kale.  My pumpkins are already rotting.  I've never been able to keep them until Thanksgiving like I want to.  Maybe it's the extraordinarily warm weather we've been having.  Oh.  Except for two inches of snow we got last Thursday, almost on the anniversary of the dreadful October Noreaster.

Whew, I have so much left to do - paint the house above the deck, paint the porch lattice, plant 100 daffodils (what was I thinking?), get new gutters for the porch and back of house, put away gardening and yard stuff.  Better get busy!

I know you've heard it before, but there's always something that is nagging to be done when one lives in an old house. Racing to try to finish outdoor work before winter is always stressful. Planning to paint on nice days, and doing prep work on days when it's too cool to paint.

Those daffodil bulbs? 100 isn't so bad. Dig ten holes and put ten bulbs in each. Done!

Happy Halloween!

Connie,
Thanks for the tip! Duh, of course I don't have to dig 100 individual holes! I like the look of masses of them anyway.
