Mum's the Word ~

Good Morning Folks!

Miss Felicia & I are heading out for the
Fishersville Antiques Expo ~

hoping to find all kinds of needful things :)

but first,
here are some snaps of our black walnut trees
and our GINORMOUS mum plant (bush!)

I love the nuts while they're still on the trees,
hate to pick them up ~
something about rusty buckets, cornstalks and pumpkins
make my heart sing ~

and here is the mother of all mum's...

I affectionately call her 'mummy'...
yes, I talk to my plants ~
i talk to my gardens, the trees, and anyone else who will listen!

perhaps that's why she grows so big every year?

I'll post tomorrow with the goods from the show ~
Have a *SPARKLING* Autumn day my Friends!!

blessings from the farm,

OMG,you aren't kidding when you say Ginormous. Is that all from one plant? It is beautiful.

I always wondered why my chrysanthemums never came back. Now I know - I don't talk to them. :) I will have to give it another go. Your's is spectacular!

Of course you talk to your plants!! Doesn't everyone? It is a sparkling day, today. We went target shooting and pumpkin and apple shopping. Love life in the country!
