My mom's yard in the fall is amazing... so different from it's spring beauty.
The other day, me and the little boys stopped by (which we don't do enough!)
I had fun taking pictures!
I now know what an amazing yard I was able to grow up in!
My boys love all the flowerbed ornaments...
|zinnias- one of my faves!|
My mom has a new next-door neighbor who swears by "bagging" your fruit instead of spraying them for worms. So far so good, but it looks so funny! I think she did something like 600 of these!

Everyone who knows my mom has seen her like this-
picking tomatoes for whoever will take them.
I love that she is so giving of her garden when it takes so. much. work!
I always leave her house with bags of vegetables and fruits!
|green bell peppers|
|red chili peppers- I think?|
|I thought this was dill until I smelled it and it |
smells exactly like black licorice!
My mom the Finn planting licorice plants.

|My mom insisted on getting the shovel to make a classic picture- so funny.|
|These are the plants that have to be wheeled into the garage when it gets cold... |
I think there's a fig plant, a pomegranate plant and a lemon plant.
|the kitty- Vega|
Linc likes her because she doesn't run away from him like our kitty.
You know how people give you plants and you set them on your table until they die and then you throw them away? Well these were a gift to my mom from my stepsister Jackie, and she hangs them outside all summer and puts them in the garage all winter while they're sleeping. She's amazing!
|They've planted grapevines along their chain-link fence to make a beautiful (and delicious) privacy wall.|
|I'm trying to think if I've ever seen my mom and dad on these swings... I don't think I have!|
|An inside perk the kids love- the candy shelf! Bowls stocked with treats.|
|giant hibiscus flower- so pretty|
|All that exploring even contributed to Ollie's rare nap!|
