Mums the Word!

Hello friends! Hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy. There are some nasty bugs going around, and what's going around, unfortunately came around! I have had "something" since last Wednesday and I cannot seem to shake it!

On one of my better days my husband suggested we hop into the car and go for a ride. We ended up at our favorite farm, "Walker Farm" in Vermont. It's really not too far from here and it was such a nice day for a ride.

Look at all these mums! I got the dreaded question...."which colors do you want?" When I have too many choices I am not always quick with decision making! We ended up getting some of each!

I love mums, that's for sure! But I also love other fall produce like pumpkins, gourds and squash....

I just like looking at them all.....

I especially love butternut  and acorn squash. I baked my first acorn squash of the season the other night and it was delish! I can't wait to make squash and pumpkins soups!

 These are some fine looking specimens!

This truck full of gorgeous red mums was sitting out front! My husband and I just loved the truck! I had to take a photo!

Now if I could just get healthy again to get my beautiful mums into the ground. I did manage to unload them from the back of my car. That is about as far as I got. They are neatly lined up on our retaining wall out front.

Hoping for a better day tomorrow! Goodnight friends!
