I went to the local nursery and bought some lovely plants and things to add some Autumn colour to our home and front porch.
A simple chrysanthemum in a terra cotta pot
which I hope says Welcome to our home.
A white pumpkin and a mixed planter with mixed foliage plants.
A new orchid which I popped into a vintage white planter.
These orchids last for years and re-bloom several times each year...
the blooms usually last for 3-4 months.
I purchased 5 of these wee white pumpkins to use on the dinner table.
A sweet little Kalanchoe in a wee pot for the powder room.
Mr. HB has been busy outside
harvesting the apples from the dwarf trees that we planted a few years ago.
I am making an apple crisp for our Thanksgiving dessert.
Greenhouse tomatoes are finished for the year but this last harvest will be enjoyed and the green tomatoes will ripen in a few days.
I must get back to my cooking...
The menu for the family feast:
Prime Rib of Beef
whipped mashed potatoes
carrots cooked in orange juice with parsley
macaroni and cheese
(4 year old Henry's favourite)
(for the non meat eaters and extras for those who like both!)
my sister is bringing a veggie dish
Apple crisp with coconut ice cream
salted caramel truffles
coffee and tea
Must get back to the duties at hand.
