I’m slowly starting to decorate my front porch for the Harvest/Autumn season. The straw bales are out. I made a nice Lavender/Wheat bouquet, this morning. It’s the first part of the decor. Earlier in the week, I also checked for fabric in the stores. I might get some solid colors to make some cute pillow cases for my wooden patio chair. That will make it comfortable and cozy, when the nights become much shorter and cooler. Sometimes, I just love to sit outside and enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea. Wrapped in blanket on the porch is so nice, when the mosquitoes are finally gone.
At this time of the year, the critters love to “steal” some corn; the common sunflowers show off in their bright, deep yellows; the hay dries on the rainless Summer days; and a few grains sit lonely in the field of grasses.
It is hot, and time to bring the harvest in. At the same time, the girls and I enjoy driving out in the country to take a break from the suburban life of Dallas/Fort Worth. There, we still can breath the fresh, less polluted air and stop on the side of the farm roads to see the beauty of the corn fields. Here and there, we see a farmer bringing the harvest in. Thank you for still being around to guarantee us fresh foods.
