Color is just starting here. Later this week and next week it will take off. No matter how many fall seasons you've lived to see, you're right, it never gets old.I cannot beLIEVE that you would consider travel at this time of year, when Vermont is in the throes of beautiful fall color!!
Here, in Illinois, we NEVER see our leaves in the same way.
You live in a lovely area, Phaedra. I love the potting bench. It is the perfect match to your sitting area wall, and a nice mix of the modern and the antique. You have an eye for decorating.It's a very happy Sunday.
DH and I went for an one-hour morning walk. The weather and the temperature are just perfect.

Then, I added wheels to the small, old potting table - so it can become a multi-functional tool.

Finally, I painted it with the same grey and teak colors like the sitting area I just finished yesterday.

It will be a good helper when I work in the front yard, and can also be used for displaying the homegrown bouquets from the next growing seasons. I like such customized consistency.

I also started positioning the bearded Irises. The transplantation should be done within the next few days.

A couple of years ago I dug out my mom's unproductive 30 year old asparagus patch with the hope of rejuvenating it, and by the end I clearly understood why they don't recommend trying to move or transplant asparagus. Their roots are beasts, like strange sea creatures from the abyss. It is far more fun to start adorable asparagus seedlings from seed-- an easy and endearing pastime. 🙂
