Welcome to the second week of Bricks ‘n Blooms Weekly!

It’s been a great, but busy week here!

The leaves are still coming down, so we are still doing fall clean-up. My neighbor’s oak tree is always the last to drop its leaves.

I started dismantling my fall porch decor to prepare for winter and am cleaning out the rest of my containers.

My pothos that I propagated have really good root systems now, so I’m planting those today in some pots.

Remember those daffodils I planted a few weeks ago? My sweet pup Koda keeps digging them up so I’ve had the pleasure of replanting them almost every day this week. *Sigh*

More Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

  • I’m working on getting back into a daily fitness routine. There was a time when I was running serious mileage 5 days a week but after tweaking my achilles a few years ago, I backed off the mileage and focused more on the gym. It feels really good to get back into it!
  • I’m really excited for my older two daughters to come home from college over the next few days. I’ve been busy getting their rooms ready for their return. It will be great to have them both home again for a few months before they head back for spring semester.
  • Do you ever do something on the fly that might change your course in life? We did that this week and may have some really big news coming up! Not sure what will happen yet, but will share soon!
  • It was another awesome week on the blog too! I’ve been really busy working on content behind the scenes, but this week we talked about overwintering dahlias and other tender bulbs, poinsettias care, a before and after small bathroom makeover, and how to set a gorgeous Thanksgiving table.

  1. I love your weekly recap Stacy! Thank you so much for featuring my Christmas ideas post. Very much appreciated! Have a great week my friend.

  2. I thoroughly enjoy your cite….look forward to all of them to appear. your new place is beautiful and can’t wait to see the beautiful gardens you are under taking this Spring. I have a 20 ft garden on my balcony 15 floors high in my apartment. I would be lost without it as I have always had large gardens, but, as 79 yrs young I still enjoy it. I have mostly perenials and a few annuals.
