Daily Living Made Easier

Talk about the best laid plans of mice, men and the Sandwich Generation!  Due to unexpected caregiving issues and a slower recuperation for my senior mom – who's doing well but still not moving or bending as comfortably as we'd like, we opted to cut back a bit on our autumn gardening plans.

The Sunflower House is definitely winding down – actually it is wound down. All but two of the blooms are gone – with happy Kentucky squirrels and birds all around us testifying to the yummy factor of the Sunflower seeds.

The Mammoth Sunflower House is done for this summer but the grandkids and senior mom and I all have lovely family gardening memories to treasure for decades to come

But each garden wagon will still be staying out – to help with the autumn flowers my senior mom is planting as part of her autumn gardening projects.

My senior mom will not be putting either garden wagon away tho - she will keep them for her cool new autumn flowers she is enjoying in her gardening endeavors

The Autumn mums  are doing well,

My senior mom is loving autumn gardening projects like these lovely fall mums

and we did add the "Fall to Winter" Pansies in.  When I bought them, I told the nursery worker what the Kentucky gardening book said, and he agreed. "Pansies do like cold weather," he commented. So now she has several delightful blooms in a mixture of Autum colored flowers as well as some pretty pastels. She's wanted pansies for some time, so they should be doubly delightful for her throughout the fall season and on into winter.

The colors on lovely autumn flowers like these fall and winter pansies are delightful

The autumn leaves are beginning their annual color change and many are falling down.

The autumn leaves are falling down and senior gardening has switched from a small vegetable garden to lovely autumn flowers

We've already enjoyed the autumn ballet of leaves flittering and dancing in the wind. A joy and delight for grandma and grandkids alike!

So my senior mom is happy with a few autumn gardening projects without being too overwhelmed. A nice compromise for our Sandwich Generation Family. And, for more delightful photos of our autumn flowers to give you some ideas for your own autumn landscaping designs, be sure to visit SandwichINK Real Estate Info this week. 🙂

    I try to include mom in our garden too. Although she can’t do as much as she used to, she really enjoys the beauty of the flowers. Unfortunately, yesterday was 113 degrees here and we have no “fall” in sight. 🙁
