Red, Gold, Orange and blue?

Fall outside is always bittersweet. The colours and cooler temperatures mean relaxing and enjoying the view. The labour is almost done, the weeding is almost done, and the grass has returned to green without the intense heat. On the otherhand, this also means of course that snow is coming (it is the truth don't get mad) and I am already dreaming of what I want to do next year.
A fall roundup of colour and of course pumpkin decorating.


my ancient wheelbarrow filled to the brim. the Heritage piece is cast iron from an old boiler.


the whole view


our main entrance into the foyer. my cornstalks are a little short this year (dry summer means, dry plants) but, the charm is still there





whoa blue-grey beluga pumpkin. love love. wish they were all like this. blue-grey pumpkins are extremely hard to find around us. people seem to really love those stinkin' orange ones. haha


cast sphere covered in russian sage still growing strong




can't forget my poultry family, look how they've grown this summer. i must have fed them well!








even the deadheads have a picturesque quality.








mums and kale. so fall.


fall always makes me want to plant more Autumn Joy Sedums. the deep colour they get with the cold weather is awesome. it gives the garden life when everything else is going to sleep.

Have a great day and get outside some more before it's too late.

  4. Hi Meg,
    I am inspired by your fall decor. You have a way with styling! I think I need to amp up my pumpkins, etc. on my front porch now!

Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
Unless you're being less than friendly, then play like the rabbit and say nothing!
