Come enjoy a Bit of Fall on the Table, a DIY rustic box or crate, fresh flowers and milk jars.

Just a bit of a ramble today. I spent my 30 minutes of garden time this morning deadheading spent blooms and clipping flowers for display on our dining room table. All the while I am trying to brainstorm a post on how I take care of my gardens in little portions of time.
Being that I do it without really thinking about it I am now consciously considering what I am doing and I am setting a timer to see what I truthfully accomplish in half an hour. I can easily lose track of time when I am in the garden so setting a timer if I have to be somewhere else soon is a must.

You really can get quite a bit done in that amount of time and if you tackle it a bit each day or even every other day you can have a lush garden full of gorgeous flowers. I promise.
Right now I still have a few roses blooming and will until the first frost. I am going to pick as many as I can to bring inside to enjoy like these apricot and yellow beauties here.
I am loving the little crate I made, it is perfect with the cream bottles that fit inside to use as vases for the flowers.
I use this crate as a center piece for my dining room table.
We have been enjoying some spectacular sunsets lately, I can’t even get close to the beauty in the sky but you can get an inkling in this shot.
My Fall Welcome sign is coming along and I do hope to finish by Friday. I have a new bench design to share soon too.
Update: Here is my Fall Welcome sign completed.

My garden is keeping me busy, Fall Clean up, tossing out seeds for next Spring, transplanting Iris and rearranging of perennials. All along the way I am enjoying what is blooming now for the last hurrah of garden goodness. A few Zinnias…
Lots of mums..
A Daisy here and there…
late blooming Hollyhocks…with her little friend the Bumblebee
Nearly Wild Rose…And the last Black Eyed Susan’s of the season…
How is your Fall going? While we are enjoying fine weather with temps in the low 80s and wonderful sunshine I know others are already getting rain and cooler weather. As much as we do need it I am relishing the fine weather and fun in the garden. All too soon it will be draped in snowdrifts and be nothing but white.
Thank goodness my studio cottage has heat.
Happy Autumn Sunshine everyone!
