Fall at the Joseph Smith Birthplace Memorial

I'm posting some photos of us taking out the summer flowers and putting in the fall mums.  It was kind of hard pulling out the summer flowers since we have worked to hard to take care of them during the summer.  We even prayed for them and they were very pretty all summer.  But all good things have to come to an end so it was their time. 
After we pulled out the flowers, we planted 400 mums.  They were not blooming when we planted them so sometimes it was hard deciding what color they were.  When they started to bloom, we were surprised to see that some of the same colors were together since we tried so hard to spread the colors out.
 It was a fun project.  This is a great place to serve.  We are so blessed to be here at this time.
