1. I like marigolds!
I'm not much of a gardener, but I love flowers, so when I figured out that the marigold seeds I planted years ago would re-seed themselves, I just let it happen! And now, every year, I have all this glorious red, orange, and yellow color in the flower garden at the front of my house. These are the last of the marigolds this year that I brought in while cleaning out the old plants so that I could put in some bulbs this fall.
Which leads me to -
2. I like daffodils!
Daffodils don't bloom until the spring, but in order to get them, you have to plant the bulbs in the fall, and that is what I did yesterday afternoon. Crossing my fingers that my minimalist gardening skills will be enough to get some beautiful yellow, white, and orange blooms come spring! (Does anyone have any advice about fertilizing daffodils? :)
3. I like carrots!
Yes, I actually grew these this year! They aren't very big, but they sure were tasty!
4. This time of year, I like all things pumpkin! Especially, it turns out - pumpkin yogurt!
Noosa Yoghurt is made right here in Colorado, and it is like dessert for me! Sprinkle a little granola on top, and yummy!
5. I like little bundles of fabric!
This is a bundle of fat eighths that I found in a quilt shop on our trip to California recently. I don't know what I will do with these fun, colorful polka dots, but I did notice that there is some orange and yellow in there. Just looking at this makes me happy - maybe I will never undo the string, just keep looking at it! Lol!
6. I like the Golden Gate Bridge!
Also on our trip to California, we stopped off at a couple of the spots where you can look at and photograph the bridge. Did you know it's painted a color called International Orange? I had to look up why this is, and it turns out it is a special kind of paint designed to keep the bridge from rusting due to the moisture from the fog that comes in from the ocean to San Francisco Bay.
7. I like orange leaves in the fall - especially in vineyards!
My husband and I like to visit wineries when we are in California, and especially this time of year, we have fun walking through the vineyards and looking at the leaves on the vines. They can be just beautiful!
Wishing all of you a good end of the week, and hoping you will find an opportunity to think about the things you like!
