It is fall today!
with a bit of a breeze, cloudy and even some sprinkles. I love these days and of course we have many ahead of us. Autumn is my favorite time of the year and I know it is because of the colors....those leaves that turn so beautiful, and of course all those pumpkins, gourds and scarecrows. Yesterday I escaped to the demo garden to teach a class called Gifts from the Garden and used the sweet envelopes that Gail decorated for the class. We taught how to press and dry flowers, save seeds, told how to use the dried material in swags, wreaths, etc. We also served some zucchini bread we made that had blueberries in it and served homemade apricot/pineapple jam....all good gift ideas. One of the members also potted up strawberry plants with a bit of garden art in the pots and they were so cute. We had a drawing to give it all away and of course people loved that. HAPPY FALL TO ALL OF YOU.
