Hard to believe Fall arrives this coming Wednesday the 23rd!
These impatiens did well in the wagon. The pink looks so summery. I'm probably going to transition this into a display with pumpkins soon. I'll wait for it to cool off a bit more though. If you buy them too early they'll rot. They're just starting to appear at our Farmer's Market but they'll be best the first of October.
I planted these hanging baskets on the arbor in June and as you can see the wandering jew plant has really grown a lot. I posted about this "here". You can see the comparison of the plants to now in that post.
The country girl in me!
This Lemon Zest Verbena ia a favorite of mine and it's held up well through the summer.
I liked the contrast of the grasses behind it with their browning tassles. Definitely an end of summer look.
I decided to try an orange and white mix this year out on the patio. I like how they grab the eye at a distance and as we reach the end of the summer this color works transitioning into fall.
I have a garden blog that some of you have come by to visit but in case you didn't know here is the link to "Sit With Me In My Garden"
I've begun some transition in my home to fall decorating which prompted a visit last weekend to Hobby Lobby.
Shots from the window as we made our way over to Gaylord. Not too exciting but this is a beautiful view when the fall colors hit.
It's about 80 miles one way so I don't get there very often. Probably a good thing for my wallet!
So I spotted this decorated pumpkin but was shocked at their $99 price tag. Even with 40% off it's still a $60 item. I've noticed that Michael's and Hobby Lobby have bumped up their prices over the past few years and don't offer quite the deals that they used to.
I know most of us can create this look with our
hoard stash of fall goodies so I'm going to give it a try too!
I flipped it around to see both sides. I don't have a pumpkin quite this large but we'll see what I can do about that! Of course any color of pumpkin will do. Wouldn't this be great placed on an urn out on a covered porch. I don't have a porch but I have an urn!
A little peak at my fall decorating. I've been itching to own some velvet pumpkins but I always get stopped from buying them when I price them. I found some in a boxed set at Pier 1 that comes with some raffia and leaves and a couple of gourds.
More to come!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
