|This is only the second year for these |
Mums and French Lavendar!
My favorite color combination for mums are bronze and burgundy ! Their vibrant hues are splendid during all types of Fall weather. They are also compatible with the day lillies, dusty miller, french lavender and the gingersnap roses in the front flower bed!

Last year On Crooked Creek, we removed all the annuals and replaced them with perennials. We could tell you it's more economical, more environmentally friendly or less time consuming. . . but truthfully. . .it has to do with age! Our age. The age of our backs, knees and muscles every time we work in the flower beds!
|The Lemon Thyme has been replaced with Yellow Mums.|
|The new bronze Mums . . .|
I can hardly wait until they spread!

|Notice the Emerald 'n Gold Euonymus beginning to turn|
its leaves with our cooler night temperatures?
I'm looking forward to watching them grow and spread to fill in the area vacated by the thyme!

Of course, you're welcome to join me, dear!
