Happy Week-end!

Ahh...Fall in Minnesota!


My husband is on an airplane coming home from Asia after 12 days away....hurrah!
I am getting ready to spend a fun Saturday with my mom, aunt, daughter, nieces and cousins "haunting" the little shops in Waconia!
The flowers are still blooming awaiting the first hard freeze!
Life is good!



I finally got around to redoing the window boxes for fall....
In true Sweetwater style....I refused to spend any money...
You know....Use what ya got!

After cutting down the summer stuff...I watered the soil in them really well so it would be easy to work with.
Then I put a few small logs on top of the dirt to make a base....
Wandered around the yard to find:
Leaves, Sedum heads, grasses, and other fall looking stuff...
Stuck it all in like I was arranging flowers.....added a few fake leaves....



And here they are!
I think I will drive down a few country roads on my way to Waconia today to find a few more dried weeds to stick in for more fullness....but all in all....not too bad!

Hope you have a wonderful relaxing weekend!
