This past weekend, I purchased my freshly cut Christmas Tree.  I LOVE the smell of the pine needles and deciding where to place my ornaments.  This year, my family and I will have decorate the tree together – a wonderful holiday tradition.  With my mother visiting from Portugal, my husband and I working 7 days a week and my 5 kids running in different directions – it will take some planning!

Fall and Landscaping

 

fall

It’s Fall and there’s still lot’s of gardening to be done besides raking leaves!  LOWE’S has helpful ideas for “Digging In” during Autumn’s cool days. What a great time to garden – no bugs, no heat and no sweat!

DIY Network explains why leaves change color in the Fall – making a ride to Upstate New York a wonderful place for foliage observers.

                                                             

If selling your home during the Fall season, it’s important to keep the yard neat and inviting by raking and decorating the yard with mums and pumpkins – and don’t forget to bring some of these fall items inside the home too!
