Apples and mums

Nothing says fall than mums and apples, (okay, pumpkins too), but today I don't want to talk about pumpkins, I want to show you some mums from my garden

I don't know how this happened, but I have red and yellow mums coming from the same plant.

We picked these gorgeous apples last weekend in Washington, right from the tree, they're delicious too.

I love how versatile mason jars are, you can do so much with them, even paint them.  I will be painting some for my front entrance on Halloween.

Wishing you all a great weekend!!!

French word of today:
Apples = Pommes
