Slideshow of the Fall Colors

Here's a little slideshow of some pictures I took of the fall leaves recently.  Enjoy!  It is a lot of work to pick up all the leaves.  Coming soon, I will post some tricks and tools we use to take care of the parking lot when there is leaf litter scattered everywhere.

Autumn Has Arrived at the Temple



Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year!

Chili peppers in the mix...

Brighton Lund, who used to work on the grounds last year, proposed to his fiancé at the Temple Grounds a couple of weeks ago!

Fun Group of Great Missionaries!



3 New windows were installed to replace the cracked ones... They were a good match.

Summer Flowers Out, Fall Flowers in!

Great Weather for the Fall Flower Planting

First lay them out in the pots to get an idea of the spread, then plant!

Delta Pansies are my favorite fall flower!

I love these tree rings with the Mondo Grass grown around them.  No weeding or any maintenance.  Best solution to a tree ring.  But Mondo Grass is expensive, you have to have patience until it grows together.
