Fall Visitor

Today, it actually felt like a Fall day as I potted this beautiful Mum.

I’m going to try keep it alive inside.  I have it sitting in front of a south window, so it should be 8-10 hours of filtered sunlight and if I keep it watered and don’t let it get to hot or cold it should survive.   Time will tell.

After I brought the Mum indoors I found a visitor, who rode in on it.  I turned around, taking the plant back outside to let him fly away and fortunately the little feller flew outside as the back door was opened.

As the day progressed I noticed a glare coming through the south window.

A new roof is being put on the house behind us.  It is a metal roof and at certain times of the day there is a glare from the sunshine coming from it and it is blinding when sitting on the couch in my living room.

So I went to my fabric stash and found some material that will cut down on the glare but is thin enough to let the sunlight in. I used thread that coordinates with the curtains I already had hanging in the window.

It’s a simple curtain but it takes care of the glare and making a curtain was easier than moving the furniture.
