In 2 days it will be Fall...
but it doesn't feel like it at all.
It's still pretty warm here and the humidity is still high.
The weather this year has been pretty strange...
Summer finally arrived at the end of August after raining practically all summer.
My garden is all out of wack...I've planted my Fall veggie garden nearly 3 times. The third planting of lettuce, broccoli and carrots can are finally taking hold. I cannot wait to have some organic, home grown Romaine lettuce.
Ya know it spoils you when you have fresh picked that day veggies for lunch or dinner. It ruins eating veggies from the grocery store and even from good restaurants.
Ah, but I digress...
Since the weather is still very warm, I've only decorated one Fall vignette...
yep, the one I showed you last week.
I've also been a little pre-occupied...Will tell you why at the end of the post...
Thought I'd try to get in the mood for Fall by posting some photos from years past...
I had fun decorating our porch for Fall last year. I can tell you that I braved the heat, humidity and mosquitoes to clean off the porch and trim the shrubs on one side. Yup, only. one. side.
Still need to get to the store to buy some mums. I do love mums and they definitely say Fall.
Ya think I could put out my Fall wreath, but alas it is still in the Fall bin in the basement.
Yup, I've just been shamed and I promise I will be heading down to the basement as soon as I finish this post.
One of my favorite Fall views is out the dining room window looking out into the front yard.
Currently, we still have a few more leaves than shown in this photo.
When the leaves around the ajuga plant look like this, I know the weather will have cooled off.
I am looking forward to cooler weather and the leaves changing this year...
I'm also looking forward to Fall because of
the reason why I've been pre-occupied for the last month ...
We bought a mountain cottage.
I shared a few pics on Instagram after we made the offer last month, but didn't really want to announce it formally until after we closed. We closed on Wednesday, but haven't been there yet. We are planning to go soon, though.
Can't wait. The inside needs a total update and there will be tons of blog posts. I designed the kitchen the day after we put in the initial offer.
You're going to laugh when you hear what our realtor texted to me after the house closed on Wednesday but I'll save that for next time.
In the meantime, I'll show you a couple of pics of the outside, which thankfully doesn't need any work, except for a couple of trees that need to be removed.
Can't wait to sit on this porch and take in the gorgeous view. (We've already bought 2 wicker chairs for the porch)
I'm calling this a mountain cottage. What do you think?
Does it look like a mountain cottage or a mountain cabin to you?
Hope you have a great weekend!
