Oh Fall!

Oh Fall,

We are looking forward to you this year...we are tired of rain (though we are thankful Lord, for you watering our earth), we are tired of humidity (Lord, I know we do get tired easy of things that go on and on, forgive us!) we are tired of mowing the yard so much...(okay, thankful for our mowers, lawns, gas and the ability to mow!)...but we are so READY for fall!

I put a few fall things out in the store today, and  guess what? They went! I haven't run out yet though ;) Fall floral, wool rug hooked wall hangings and pillows with pumpkins/ crows. Tomorrow I will add more floral, a few autumn plates, and pumpkins. Next week will bring a better variety.

If you come tomorrow (Saturday, August 14th) you can get summer merchandise for 25% off. I still have a few wood flowers left...popular as they have been, sometimes they go unseen...

Check back next week for photos! Have a super nice (free from humidity~!!!! weekend!!!)

In The Heat of Summer

When it is this HOT and HUMID, it might seem odd to think about bittersweet, pumpkins, gourds and scarecrows, but just around the calendar corner, they will be visible parts of our landscape!

How thankful I am for air conditioning these last few days of "extreme" summer, and yet I have noticed that the corn is tassled, the blackbirds are hovering, the garden looks like an absolute jungle, and autumn merchandise is arriving at Bittersweet Farm. Actually, within the next two weeks you may see some of it show up in the shop!

I know it has been awhile since I posted, but things have been a bit crazy around here with all the rain. The yard is a hayfield and like I said, the gardens are a jungle.... and  I~the major care-taker here since my guys are keeping so busy at work! BUT, keep your eyes open for new photos, late summer and fall events in the coming weeks!

And stop for a visit to the shop!
