Celebrate the Small Things - Gardening edition


It's that time again!  Let's celebrate!

This week, I'm celebrating the mums that I bought and planted in my flower pots.  I planted dark burgundy mums for my front pots, and a friendly orange mum for my back pot.  I'm hoping they'll bloom soon so I can share pictures with you all!

I hope mine will look this good! :)
The weather has finally turned cooler here, and I'm hoping this marks a turn into fall.  I'm tired of sweating :)

What are you celebrating this week?

If you've been reading my blog, you know that Fridays are reserved for a post where I celebrate the little things that have happened during the week. This is a blog hop hosted by VikLit, and it's one of my favorite blogging things to do.  I encourage you to check out her blog and the full list of participants, because who doesn't love reading about good things?

  1. I love mums, but they never look good the second season. I guess I just don't prune in time or properly.

  2. I always kill my mums off. They're supposed to keep coming back but whenever I plant them they die. Love the fall color though.

    1. I've never been able to get mine to last more than one season.

  3. They'll look lovely! We're having an Indian summer in Scotland - been really warm this week. Not complaining though and the kids are having fun playing in the park in our street after school.

  4. I love fall when the mums are potted and the color lasts way past first frost here. Enjoy yours!

  5. I love mums too. I need to get a few extras this year. Mine from last have already started coming back in. Woot!

    This week I'm celebrating...herm. My bookish friends who go to signings with me or just visit and chat books over dinner. :)

  6. I love mums. I like them all in their pretty colors. I envy the great weather you're having. Can't say the same for me but like I said in my blog post, there's always something good in everything.

    1. Very true--you just have to find the silver lining!
