We put the garden to bed this week and cut the roses back, but not before I picked the last of them. Just being able to pick roses in November is amazing.
The mild weather that we've been blessed with for much of October has come to an end. It's starting to get cold and it was time to finish up with the outside work for another year. I even saw a few snow flurries this morning! I'm so not ready for that.
I'm making progress with my craft room once again and the kitchen and dining room are just about done. I hope to be able to share a few sneak peeks with you in my next post. The pantry was scheduled to begin next week but I decided to finish up with the above projects before starting another so it might be delayed a bit. It's feeling a little chaotic around here!
In the meantime, I'm just enjoying Autumn's last gifts. I have to confess that I'm almost ready to put the Autumn decor away for another year and toss the pumpkins into the compost. One or two have already found their way there. I'm not quite ready for Christmas but looking forward to adding one or two more seasonal elements to my decor. When do you start decorating for Christmas?
November can be rather bleak now that the trees are bare and sunny days are rare. At least I can make it cosy inside, and warm things up with candles, lamplight and quilts. These roses remind me of Summer so let's just think of warm sunny days - at least for today. :)
