Mother Nature hasn’t gotten the ‘fall memo’ yet and we have several more weeks of summer weather ahead of us in North Carolina. It will a least a month or more before our Autumn Blaze Maple ‘blazes’ with fall color.

Fall is a great time to plant spring and summer perennials in your garden, as it gives them time to develop a strong root system before the blooming season.

The winners of my Fall Planting for Summer Blooms Giveaway are

Rita C and Lisa Caldwell

I’ll be in touch by email and get your daylilies to you!

Are you ready to welcome fall or sorry to say goodbye to summer?

Thank you for your visit, sharing with:

    So many awesome fall pictures Mary! It will help me get in the mood to finish my fall decorating and todays temps will be very cool so that should help too. Always feel sad to say good -bye to summer as they are so short in Michigan, never enough beach time, lol, but you can’t deny the beauty of Fall and the fun of bon fires, apple cider and fresh donuts and our wonderful pumpkins. Thank you for the coupon. Happy weekend!

    We are ready for Fall here in Louisiana…but temps are still in the 90’s! Fall comes, dragging her feet, stays for a week or two and gives way to more ‘summer’ temps…just cannot seem to make up her mind…but we do decorate with gusto down here under the pretense that the temps are reflecting the season:) Fall is wonderful in the deep South…

    So much inspiration here, Mary. Can’t wait for fall temperatures. At least it is officially fall on the calendar so we are closer to colder temperatures.
    I’ve been out of town all week and am working my way down my inbox. Missed Floral Friday but I’ll be catching up soon. Looking forward to reading your post.
