The warm summer days have faded away to frosted mornings and crisp leaves. We are preparing our gardens and yards for the harvest season with winter knocking on the door. The yellowing leaves on the willow and gently quaking aspen remind me that my time is quickly running out to finish my preparations! I do have to admit my favorite part of the autumn season is all the warm and cozy scents and festive decor. It always seems to bring a sense of anticipation of friends and family gathering for the holiday season.
I am sharing two favorites from my home with you today! Each spring, my hydrangea bush blooms the most glorious, full, bright blooms that last all season long. This year, we were surprised by a short May snowstorm that dumped thirteen inches in 10 hours! This shocked all the plants in our yards that had already started blooming for the season, including my hydrangeas. We finally received our blooms late in the season, almost in August! Needless to say, I am pretty pleased to be playing with these flowers today.
Now, no fall project would be complete without your home filled with your favorite scent! I lit the Mountain Apple Spice Mini Tin candle and made myself a fresh pot of coffee (although I think a yummy caramel apple cider would have paired better!) I can’t get over how delicious that candle smells. It reminds me of waking up on a crisp morning right in the heart of my favorite season, autumn. Filled with cinnamon, clove, and all my favorite mulled cider scents. YUMMM!
