Fall is a time to think about cooling off and maybe slowing down a bit if possible. Enjoy a riotous explosion of color with trees and shrubs changing their sedate green summer fashions to brilliant reds, yellows, and orange party clothes. Then add in the wild accents of smoky purples, magentas, and burgundy supplied by asters, autumn sedum, and ironweed (also in the aster family) just to make all the fall colors jump up and dance! Go ahead, do your own happy fall dance. I certainly am, and I do not care who is watching!

Here at our Oakland Delaware store we have many enticing and fun items for inside and outside your home to help you welcome Fall! Now might be the time to consider adding some new fall accents, such as pillows, cuddly throws that could be used on those chilly evenings outside, and custom-designed fall wreaths to add a warm welcome to your door or wall.

Consider bringing the scents of Autumn indoors with some of the wonderfully fragrant candles and melting wax that we carry in the Gift Barn and Loft. From Root Candles (made in Ohio), Candleberry Company (made in Kentucky), Thompsons Candle Company (USA), and Aromatique (made in Arkansas), we have quite a wide selection of fragrances. Think pumpkin spice, smoked vanilla and santal, bourbon, coffee, McIntosh apple, and many more. I am quite sure you will find a new favorite to fall in love with this season.

Also, we have new designs of the Peterson Touch Lamps in stock for fall. This lamp is very popular because it not only adds a charming lighting accent to any room, it also comes with a glass cup that will hold fragranced wax and gently diffuse your favorite scent out into the room. Plus you can also use it with essential oils too. And don't fret, there will be newer designs available for the holiday season.

Outside we have been receiving beautiful mums for a couple of weeks now. They are referred to as hardy mums, but they are tender. With proper care and protection, they will could come back for you next year. If planted in an area that has some protection from the N/W and plenty of sun will help a great deal. Putting down a 2-4" layer of mulch will help protect the fragile root system. Since these mums are planted late in the year I tend to treat them like an annual. To keep them looking attractive snip off all dead blossoms as they wilt. Mums can tolerate light frost. Cover plants when a freeze warning is in place.

Keep in mind that not just mums are beautiful in the fall landscape. Some other fun plants for you to try could include ornamental cabbage and peppers, marigolds, pansies, strawflowers, celosia, and rudbeckias. Gorgeous colors and forms!
