Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms

What a week it was!

Thanks so much for all of your sweet comments and messages.

I’m feeling so much better overall.

We had a quiet Halloween with not one trick or treater!

Well, actually, two cuties did drop by for a quick snack.

They are too funny!

My kids don’t let me dress them up anymore but at least my dogs indulge me for a few minutes.

On a different note, the gardening season has come to a close here.

We had a few good frosts this week, so all of my dahlias and annuals are finished for the season.

It was a good run while it lasted!
