hello its

September

"Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul."
~Peggy Toney Horton

A brand new month to reset, refocus and go for it. Over the past few months I've slipped out of my usual routines. Guess that is why it's called the lazy days of summer. I am using September to start fresh...be it a little late, since we will be traveling the first half of the month getting Lydia all settled in for another school year in California. Just starting my day squeezing in a morning walk or simple yoga flow makes a big difference in getting back to routine.
Fall weather is not as far off and I am getting ready for the cooler temperatures in the garden. There are a few cooler weather veggies that you can still plant...fava beans, radishes, greens like arugula and swiss chard are some that I added. I am still getting lots of tomatoes, peppers and eggplants!

Now is also the season to order bulbs! There is nothing more cheerful in early spring to have a garden full of flowers. Have you ordered your bulbs yet? They seem to sell out so quickly these days. What are you planting? Besides the normal daffodils and tulips, this year I've ordered some new ones that I am excited about: Imperial Fritillaries, Erythroniums, Anemones, and a bunch of Summer Snowflakes and Thalia daffodils to mix together for a happy display by our ponds at both the cabin and at home. I hope to finish the cabin pond garden before winter too! Follow me on IG at thelittlebluecabin for updates.

As with getting back to the routine, I have my monthly to-do list going again, and on it are a few surprise pumpkin pieces are coming! With the cooler autumn weather also comes the yummy warmer foods. I am blogging weekly again too! (Its on my list!) Later this week you can find a recipe for Simple to make Vegan French Breakfast Puffs that are simply to die for! They just melt in your mouth with cinnamony goodness, and are perfect for a little treat with a hot cup of tea, Next week you will find a little Fall house tour on how I like to decorate by easing into the different seasons with just slight changes around the home. I hope to inspire you to not stress about decorating. Small, easy changes can make things feel fresh again!

As I have alway said, I trust in the Lord with all my heart and am so thankful for my faith, and being a woman of God. I know that He has blessed me greatly with all of you! Your kindness and friendship means more than you will ever know.

Happy September! I would love to hear...what are you looking forward to the most this month?

Love always,

How to Grow Sweet Peas from Seed – Spring Garden Planning

With my one big trunk in tow, we pulled up to a beautiful old stately home that was encircled by a stone wall covered in jasmine. Turning in the one opening onto a curved brick drive, there was a front garden that framed the house with tall pine trees, a persimmon, a few old palms, pachysandra, and and other plants that I don’t know their names, but sure left an
