almost the weekend! and its gorgeous, crisp and sunny here. perfect weather for all the lovely loafers i’ve been noticing lately. just might have to buy some!
fall arrived over night here and it. is. COLD.
and suddenly i find myself wishing i had a mum plant on my front stoop and leaves underfoot on my driveway. i guess old habits of fall in the countryside die hard even when fall is exciting in the city.
every fall, like clock work, my mother gives me a “festive fall mum plant” and instructs me to care for it and keep it on my porch. and every fall, my roommates and i somehow get too busy to take care of the little visitor and it inevitably withers and dies. but now that i live way up on the fourth floor in an apartment and no longer have a front porch or even a tiny little bit of yard, i suddenly wish i had a festive mum to keep alive!
is it illegal to put mums on the fire escape??
