Happy Homemaker in Texas

Today is Saturday and that means Happy Homemaker
I link my post on Monday over at Family Corner
The weather
We've a had a few days of sunshine.  Yea.  Not much rain in the forecast.  Just sunny fall weather mostly 70's low 80's.  Fall 
is so nice in Texas. 

On the breakfast plate
I think I'll scramble an egg to go with some fruit. I have 
blackberries and green grapes in the fridge. 

What I'm wearing 
Jeans and a ragged t-shirt will be going outside soon and do some 
work on beds, moving more rock.  I've decided to put rock in the front bed and just a couple plants.  I tend to let it go.

My 'Ta Da' Moment

A few garden plans

I bought a couple small mums the other day at Walmart.  I like 
the smaller ones.  I'll leave them in the greenhouse for a bit then 
plant outside. 
I will be picking up bulbs and getting them out. I want to add to my flower garden for next year. 
The Zinnias are still making me smile. 

These all came up from the earlier planting.  I didn't dead head or cut any blooms I was hoping they would go to seed.  There are some tiny ones.  Maybe they will bloom before it gets to cold. 
I plan to plant 2x's next spring what I did this year.  The butterflies have found my garden. 

From the camera
Poinsettia's from last Christmas.  Two small $1.00 ones I bought at the grocery store.  I wonder if the color change on the leaves is the start of changing to red?    Just like Walmart I have Halloween Pumpkins and Christmas Poinsettia.
