I have been working in the garden, dreaming of Fall weather, it's still in the 100's,

I pruned everything WAY back,
and planted some white mums...

this rose was pruned last Saturday, look how much it has already grown!

I added some black bark that I got from Lowes (I had to get some more and they had a huge section of clearance plants for .75 cents...go check your Lowes)
 and some pretty solar lights from Walmart...
for $3.50

aren't these soooooo pretty, they are glass!
can't wait to see what the look like at night, even if they don't light up alot, they sure are cute!

  1. Oh! I love white mums! What a great choice. I'm working on cutting everything back for the fall, too. :0)

  2. Your lights are really neat! It looks like a crystal tumbler! White mums are always striking! Wow I am amazed at the temperatures people out West and down South are still touting! I guess I'm lucky up here...enjoying our comfortable temps. Your pictures of the flowers on the side are all gorgeous!

  3. I love those little lights too! I used the exact same ones on my outdoor solar chandelier:

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting!


  4. Still in the 90's here, I can't wait for cool weather


  5. Your mums are the sweetest and the lamps are gonna be brilliant, I know it! :)


  6. Oh So Pretty! I love white flowers. Mums are so nice aren't they? And I love the darling little lights! Think I'll head for Walmart soon!

  7. Love your Mums! And those sweeeet lights! Soo cute! I did a little pruning this morning too and we are suppose to hit 100 today. Wishing we both get a little cooler weather!

  8. It's still hot here too, but the mornings and evenings have been cooler. Your mums are pretty. I usually don't plant them because they don't last very long at my house. Your new solar lights are very pretty. You should've included a night shot of them! I love lights beside a walkway among the flowers.

  9. Such a pretty garden light...has a vintage feel to it, even though it is new. Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Love those Walmart lights. You're right, even a little glow would be fabulous! I'm dreaming of the cooler fall temperatures too; think it should be a bit cooler this week. YES!
