Mums…THE word

Before we got to Mom’s to pick green beans and tomatoes, we stopped at Paulie’s.  This man has been a good friend of my husband ever since high school.  We saw him marry, settle down and raise his family not far from the greenhouse business he started by working the land left to him and his brother.  He made into a multi million dollar business.

Mums

“Take what you want,” he said with that smile.  That’s what he always tells me.
We selected six, which are now planted along the stone wall outside the kitchen window.  That way, I can keep an eye on them…and think of Paulie’s smile.

Oh how awesome is that greenhouse! I really want some Autumn colors here but can only do a few pots up high to keep them from the critters. Maybe this weekend....if I buy the plants, Autumn will come and stay.
