All Decked Out For Fall!
I picked up these Cinderella type pumpkins in Pennsylvania when we were there a few weeks ago. I layered them with grapevine wreaths to help stabilized them since there's a lot of weight there!
These are all natural pumpkins, squash and gourds with a couple of exceptions. I bought two carvable pumpkins, cut off the top and planted them with mums.
I decided to add my cobalt blue planters with live plants to the vignette.
These giant stemmed pumpkins are a version of the "wolf" pumpkins. I tied a big bow of raffia on this big green one since it's so dark. Wolf pumpkins have huge stems and I first learned about them as shown "here' in a post from 2013.
This rusted metal chicken was at my mom's for a long time but wasn't being used anymore. I brought it home a few years back and this time I decided to add it to the straw bales. The leaves were a cluster for hanging on a wall or such but I decided to attach them to the rooster. This pumpkin was not a true carveable and was a pain to create an opening for. It's all styrofoam and required some pretty fancy handiwork to get a hole big enough to plant this ornamental kale into. I used a 1 gallon plastic bag, cut a hole in the bottom and plopped the kale into it before I set it into the styrofoam. It looks great to do this with real pumpkins but they don't hold up well once you carve them open.
This white one is one of the cartable pumpkins that I added the mum to. I attempted to plant it right into the pot but it was easier to leave the black pot with it so I just dropped it in place and put a hole in the bottom of the pumpkin so it would drain.
A view as you are coming up the back steps.
A few leaves fell on the deck so I swept them over to the vignette to naturalize it more. I can view this from the kitchen dining. Yesterday the wind blew them away and today I put them back! Soon there will be a ton of them!
