We awakened to a cool, crisp morning in Atlanta today.
Fall is, hands down, my favorite time of year. Let's see...I love: fall fashions, comfort foods (hence these hips, of course) and all things harvest. Mr TBS and I even married during the fall nearly 10 years ago and you should have seen all of the mums, pumpkins and candles at our wedding (trust me...it was tasteful).
My neighbor across the way has set out some beautiful plants on her decks and it reminded me that I need to grab some mums for ours (plus...I'm not one to be outdone, you know---at least that's what Mr TBS says). Since we opt to live in the city, we do not have a traditional yard. Therefore, I try to make our 2 decks and patio "urban cozy".
So I think some mums are in order. Maybe I'll swing by a few thrift stores to pursue some unique planters. Now all I have to pray is that I do not kill said mums with my brown thumb. Oh yeah, there's that. Ha!
Do you landscape during the fall? What are your favorite autumnal plants?
