A Few Blue Asters

There was a break in the rain for the second half of the day, but I think we are about to get clobbered again. Then it is going to get cool with lows in the upper 40's. It's turning seasonal.

The orange paint dried the wrong color. It was so close, but not quite. I had to go back and get the right paint then kept on going to Asheville to order my bathroom vanity cabinet and glass sink vanity top. Some furnishings are on the cusp of taking shape.

A little bit more of the Marigold paint and the next process can begin.

The mountain glitters with white, gold and an increasing intensity of blue. Cool crisp days to enjoy it will be here soon.

I've been having an urge to do some weeding in the Lush, but another gardener in these parts has said numerous times it will all be frozen soon so why bother. Makes sense and I have enough to keep me busy.

The Sheffie Mum's buds are swelling and showing the first hint of a tint. The thing is down right huge this year. I need to remember to disperse it a bit come spring.

The time of the blue asters is here and that really marks the end of another chapter of gardening on the low spot of a North Carolina mountain top. It is a very nice chapter though.

Your blooms are spectacular. I love it! Sorry to hear the paint dried the wrong color. Hopefully it won't be too bad a job to re-do those areas. Looking forward to seeing the kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity installed.

Yes, another enjoyed season is coming to a close. It will make room for another round of a different type of enjoyment.
I'm sorry that the paint wasn't what you were looking for. Maybe the "fixin" part will be easier.
Can't wait to see some of the fixtures in place.

The blue asters are a great send-off.
