Real Estate by Debbie Reynolds: Serendipity Sundays - Early Signs of Fall

Serendipity Sundays - Early Signs of Fall

Serendipity Sundays - Early Signs of Fall

It has been very dry here in Clarksville TN and lawns are looking brown and brittle. We have been watering ours (no worries, we are nowhere near a water shortage) and have enjoyed our green lawn. What we haven't enjoyed is our several hundred dollar water bills. 

The flowers have hung on because they have been watered too. Last fall I got a fantastic, low price on some fall mums at $1 a pot. They were small but I know how mums grow and knew that they would look like the $8-10 plants this year. What I didn't expect was that they would get fooled by the dry weather and think that fall is here. They have been blooming the last couple of weeks.

So is this an early sign that fall is coming sooner than later? I think it might be. I love the fall season but am not ready for it yet because it means that winter will follow shortly thereafter.

Debbie Reynolds,  Mums are certainly abundant when fall arrives.  Have a great week.

I completely agree with your sentiments Debbie Reynolds ! Our mums are also blossoming. I love the way they look but am not in a hurry for fall. Love fall, but as you say, what comes next....Yikes! Even though I am a life-long New Englander, after last winter I am really dreading this year's.

Debbie, it's been dry and crispy here, too. Can't walk on the grass without it crunching beneath your feet. The leaves are falling because it's so dry. I'm ready for cooler weather (which it has been the last couple of weeks). Cooler meaning instead of 105 degrees it's more like 95.

Hi Debbie, what a difference 75 miles makes! My grass is so darn green, you'd think it was April. I could mow twice a week and it would still look long.

I haven't seen any signs down in Georgia.  It's still super hot here.

 Good Monday morning Debbie. I'm starting to see some of the chrysanthemums bud. They will be blooming soon.

I love Fall also, but for the reason you mentioned, I don't want it to come quickly. I can't stand all the clothing we have to wear in winter, and the troubles getting around and the constant struggle to stay warm.

Debbie, I would like summer to last a little longer. I can't believe Labor day is almost here.

Posted by Gita Bantwal, REALTOR,ABR,CRS,SRES,GRI - Bucks County & Philadel (RE/MAX Centre Realtors) over 3 years ago

Hi Debbie.  The sun didn't come up until after 6AM this morning.  First time since April that happened.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) over 3 years ago

Beautiful. I noticed that Costco has some large mums at attractive prices.

Debbie, the Florida rainy season is living up to its reputation. We could use a break! Enjoy your day!

WOW Debbie, our mums never survive due to the cold winter & last year was a doozy sweet...I have to say my summer phlox garden has been wonderful.

Debbie, I have seen early signs at home too. Sure hope we get some more rain to make things last a bit longer. Your Mums are looking fabulous!

Posted by Amanda S. Davidson, Alexandria Virginia Homes For Sale (Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group) over 3 years ago

Debbie where I am right it feels like fall with chilly temps. Of course once back in Phoenix it will be full blown summer. I love the fall.....and your mums are gorgeous - Can't wait to by some mums when it cools down.

Debbie, my mums are blooming now too, and are beautiful.    Glad you do not have a water shortage, and can enjoy a green lawn!

How beautiful! Yes, summer will soon be coming to an end up north!

I miss seeing all of the green of Tennessee, as I have not visited there in a few years.  We have mainly desert landscaping here.

Debbie Reynolds Planted mums tend to bloom earlier than the ones grown at nursery farms.  Enjoy them now and then fall really arrives buy a few potted mums.

Posted by Mary Yonkers, Erie/PA Real Estate Instructor (Alan Kells School of Real Estate/Howard Hanna Real Estate) over 3 years ago

Debbie my wife will be purchasing some mums real soon as well.  They are out at the green houses around here, and I know she will not resist stopping in much longer.

Hello Debbie Reynolds 

What beautiful color - I have never had luck with mums, yours are gorgeous.

When the mums start to bloom . . . . You know that we are heading into fall.

Good luck and success.

I'm with you, it would be okay if fall held off for a little longer, like at least another month and a half!

Posted by Evelyn Johnston, The People You Know, Like and Trust! (Friends & Neighbors Real Estate) over 3 years ago

Hi Debbie Reynolds, The inevitable is happening. Early fall is my most favorite times of the year. In the Northeast we are being told to expect a colder than normal & much higher  snowfall than normal. I hope they are wrong. Regarding Mums I've seen them blooming here also.

Posted by Doug Dawes, Your Personal Realtor® (Keller Williams Realty - Topsfield, MA) over 3 years ago

Debbie Reynolds whether we like it or not, season changes when the time comes....

Not too excited even by thinking of Winter and Snow - however, we have to embrace that....

Hi Debbie -- Mother Nature can often play tricks on us.  Your photos are an incredible testament to your gardening abilities.  

Posted by Michael Jacobs, Los Angeles Pasadena 818.516.4393 over 3 years ago

Good morning Debbie - beautiful photos. I'm not quite ready for autumn, but I'd love some blooming flowers right about now!

Posted by Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl, The Last Names You'll Ever Need in Real Estate (Samsel & Associates) over 3 years ago

Debbie - Fall is a beautiful time of year but I hope we don't have an early winter.  I am still getting over the last one.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) over 3 years ago

Debbie Reynolds The flowers turned out great. No matter what season it is we always are thinking about the last or the next. Just enjoy each and everyday as it the only one we have today.

Hi Debbie! The photos look good. Those flowers look beautiful! The early signs of fall are really evident in TN.
