Indian Corn in the Morning Sunshine

In some places…

…the Autumn plantings are lush and warm!  (I truly wish professional landscapers would take the time to acclimate the mums, remove them from their pots, plant, then give them sufficient water to establish themselves, as these landscapers obviously did.)

Native Grasses and Chrysanthemums

In others…not so much!  (These poor mums, which have only been placed about a week ago (I’m certain they were still in their pots!) are already failing!)

Fading Chrysanthemums

Remember…

…people bought ‘pet rocks’ several decades ago, so why not fallen leaves?

For Rent or Sale

Note:  Oh, okay, I may as well admit it…I added the “OR SALE” just for fun!
