What to do?

It’s that time of the year again when the weather turns colder and you know that Fall is in the air and Winter isn’t too far behind. 

And also what you know if that you now have to decide what you’re going to do with your outside flowers. 

Will you leave them to die in the first frost of the season or will you try to keep them alive for… well for hopefully warmer weather? 

It’s quite a dilemma that I go through pretty much every year. 

But you just know that your flowers are looking their best by about now and you’ve literally been keeping them alive all summer. 

So what are you going to do? 

Well I know what I’m going to do.

So I started to dig in the bottom of the linen drawer and pulled out as many sheets and old blankets and I could find. Next thing is to head outside. 

Yup, it’s for sure getting cold out here! As I make my rounds from the porch flowers, to the garage flowers, to the barn and old wagon flowers, I’m wondering just how long I’ll keep this up? I know that it’s supposed to be windy tomorrow so either the wind is going to blow them off or the dogs pull the blankets off to lay on them during the day in the yard. 

But whatever the case, for this weekend they are all on survival mode and I’m spending more time that I want to admit keeping these flowers alive for, well just for now!
