Some Fall Plants

Today our son is coming over to mow the lawn which is covered with fallen leaves.  The trees are beautiful but do require ongoing maintenance to keep the leaves from filling the rain gutters and covering the grass.

Fall colors in the yard are truly stunning but also stunning are the vast numbers of fallen leaves.

Since things are going to be neatened up a bit I stopped by a farm stand and picked up some decorative kale for the side porch.

Ornamental kale - 10 for $20.

I’m really enjoying our new side porch.

How cute is this?

I also picked up a few not-orange gourds for the living room.

Fresh colored gourds - green, yellow and white.

I’m finally getting in the fall mood. I just wasn’t ready before.

Are you decorating for fall? Or waiting for Christmas?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. The selection of gourds was fabulous. Almost any color except blue was available. I’m going to try to get Charlie to grown some ornamental kale next summer. Jo
