Happy Tuesday, Garden Friends! I have no garden update to share with you this week, because I am finalizing this from my new house! We spent the long weekend moving out of the barn and into our Passive House. The Big Red Barn has been our home for the last two years, but we are excited to end that chapter of our lives and begin a new life in a real house!

It’s been a really long weekend and our work is so far from over. But, I am thrilled to be staring out a three story window on the south side of our house. I’m surrounded by boxes and chaos, and it’s rainy day today, but the view from my window is simply breath taking. I will share more about our move when I figure out which way is up!

For now, enjoy the party and please continue to link up your posts! Have a great week, friends!

From your host today, Jami at An Oregon Cottage:

September Blooms via An Oregon Cottage

Sometimes I think we overlook plants that come into their own in September for all the flowers of spring and early summer – I know I used to when I was a new gardener. But look at just some of the beauty to be had this month! The hydrangeas (this is ‘Little Lime’ if you can believe it – not so little, huh?) are turning pink-mauve, zinnias are spilling over paths, asters are blooming in all shades of pink and purple, and the bees are covering our Blue Mist shrubs (Caryopteris) which burst into bloom just a few weeks ago. Nice, right?

In other gardening news, I’m woefully lacking in any type of fall garden. Sigh. I had great plans to get some seeds started for lettuce, cauliflower, cabbage, and a few others, but the window has passed unless I find some to buy at a nursery or something. Which, let’s just be honest, is not going to happen since I’ve been to exactly one nursery all season. There are just too many other things on my plate right now – like dealing with all my tomatoes. (Shoot. I wasn’t going to go there again…)

Right. Let’s get to the features from last week, then!
