Getting Ready for Fall

 Hey Teddy, do you want to do some crafts?

 I am cleaning my garage, what a chore.  I keep getting distracted by things I am finding in there. I found this old pumpkin tea light holder which I had used outside years ago and it was very weathered.  So Teddy and I took it apart and spray painted it.

 I also made a fariy crown for one of my little friends.

 I came across my metal witches and stuck them in my planters.

So shoot me!  I know, I am rushing Summer.  I went to the craft store the other day and they had all of their Fall stuff out so I figured it's okay to start. When my friend Kary was alive, we moved the start date up earlier each year.
Good as new and ready for some candles.
 Here is a tip for working outside.  Light some incense.  Bugs hate incense and will stay far away.

 I've covered my dying tree with these Black Eyed Susan vines.  If you want a a wonderful climber with lots of blooms, try these vines.  I have them in white, orange and yellow.

 My house is going to be painted in the next few weeks.  I removed this Wisteria that was growing on the back corner of the house.  If you look closely you can see the vine grew around and choked the training pole I originally put up for it.

It pulled the brace right out of the wall.  I seriously think I would never plant Wisteria again; at least not against the house.  It's pretty for a short period when it blooms and then it is a pain the rest if the time.
