Best time of year for Color, Fragrance and Planting? Fall of Course!

At least we think the colors of fall are glorious, lush and decadent. These yummy colors also remind us of all the delicious scents and flavors we associate with this time of year. Carmel apple pie, maple syrups, cinnamon toast, apple cider, sage, cranberries, and anything with pumpkin!

Our Gift Barn is completely decked out in all of the fun looks and scents of this Ohio fall season. The most wonderful array of candles, fragrances, pillows for home decor (indoor and outdoor), beautiful table linens and furniture.

There is also an extensive collection of Stonewall Kitchen food items and Frontier Soup Mixes along with other tasty food items for a new fall taste treat. Everything you might need for a terrific seasonal change and to make cooking a little easier while you enjoy the color change right outside your own window.

And be on the lookout for lots of spooky Halloween decor - it's frightening!

As many of you know by now we are getting a new expanded and improved greenhouse here in Delaware. Our old greenhouse has served us very well for 30+ years but it was time for a serious renovation and upgrade. Our new one will be even bigger and more fabulous! Keep noticing changes and progress each time you visit. We will still be keeping quite a collection of tropical plants for you to choose from for use in your home or office environment. They just may not be all grouped together. So you may very well be taking a tour of various spaces to find them. Our staff will be happy to help you anytime.

Now to the outdoors. We are receiving daily many fall planters, mums, asters, decorative peppers, etc. These truly bring into focus all the amazing colors of fall together in a kaleidoscope explosion of the richness of the harvest season. Also, outside you will find many fun and decorative lawn stakes in a wide range of fall harvest designs. These include pumpkins, scarecrows and Halloween figures. If you can't find the perfect lawn decoration, then it hasn't been designed yet!

And how could we celebrate fall without fresh pumpkins, gourds and corn in every shape and color to decorate our spaces inside and out. And then recycle these to the compost heap when they are done. Full circle here. So much fun to prepare for Halloween goblins and Thanksgiving festivities!

The other great news about fall is that it is a terrific time to plant trees and shrubs. Much easier on the plant and on yourself. Cooler temperatures, less watering on your part. All good!

Now it might be time for me to find that pumpkin latte and get started on my fall decor. Happy Fall!!
