Fall Detail and Color

It still seems a little early to decorate for fall inside, but I couldn't resist bringing some much needed fall color and some fun and whimsical details to the outside of my home. No pumpkins yet, until the weather turns colder, but touches of fall here and there. On the front porch, I added a cheerful, yellow mum in a basket, a pot of orange and yellow pansies and a seasonal welcome sign.

More pansies, and a mum of similar color tones, fill my fire pit, turned planter. To see how this fire pit became a planter, read here.

An unusual variety of a purple mum hangs from a tree, with a inspirational sign in fall colors.

This large metal sunflower hangs from another tree.

A cute statue of a little boy, with a wheelbarrow, is filled with mums in golden hues.

Near the edge of the woods, there is a rustic heart attached to a tall tree stump. A fun detail in an unexpected spot.

A flower pot near a bench gets a pretty mum too.

A sign I have had for years, is given an update with some burlap ribbon.

The pitiful remains of my perenial garden could use some clean up and cutting back, but that will have to wait for another day. Making my outdoors pretty, with color and fall details, was so much more fun :-)

Have a wonderful day!
