Fall Greenhouse

About 6 weeks ago a big tree limb broke off and fell right on the top of the greenhouse.

Somehow the greenhouse didn't sustain much damage,   but it has taken a while to get things back to normal.

6 weeks ago..........................................................................Today

I like to use containers for my flowers,   so I was able to "borrow" a few pots to fill in the flower bed in front of the greenhouse.    Almost all of the plants in this bed were destroyed by the tree limb.

I have several big ferns that will go into the greenhouse when it gets a little cooler or we are expecting a freeze.

But for now,   I'm just enjoying the ferns hung around the yard.    Look over to the right side of the photo and you will see where the branch broke off of the tree.   I don't know if the tree will make it or not....guess we'll see next spring.

You can barely see it,  but there is a vintage iron bench under all that stuff.     Our grandson just bought a home,  and the previous owners left this bench in the storage shed,  along with a lot of other stuff.   Aaron didn't want it,  and I told him I would love to have it,  so he gave it to me.

We don't have much fall color here in Eastern New Mexico yet,   the tree's are just starting to turn.   

I scattered a few pumpkins in the flower bed .......

Our neighbor across the alley has a tree with lots of fall color,  but none of ours have turned yet.

Some of the leaves are turning yellow,  and a few branhes on the oak tree have some orange on them

It's such a pretty morning......

H and I decided to have breakfast outdoors.......

I love to serve breakfast on these cheery plates.....

It's a great way to start the day!

The yellow tuff shed that you see in the right side background is where all my fall decor is stored.    I used to have Christmas decor in there,   but we moved those totes to the studio where the fall used to be  .   It's too cold to be in the shed in December,  and the studio is heated.

All of the metal yard decor is stored in the greenhouse over the winter......


Happy Fall Ya'll!
