The Gorgeous Colors of Fall

Although I love summer, I love fall too! I’m enjoying the emergence of the gorgeous colors of fall. Everywhere you turn there’s visual evidence of autumn’s charm. From the turning of leaves to the gathering wheat in the farm fields, there’s an abundance of eye candy.

Wouldn’t it be fun to stack a pile of pumpkins, squash, and gourds out in the yard? Our local farm market is now carrying a variety of heirloom pumpkins.

When I was a kid, I only remember orange pumpkins. Nowadays you can find them in a range of colors. The softer shades of fall are so pretty.

Mums provide a range of brilliant fall colors to add to your landscape. I’ve got a tree stump and I’ve got a big galvanized bucket. I think I’ll recreate this autumn container garden with stunning winter sage.

Mums can be vivid or softer in hue like this lavender beauty.

Since my house is yellow with blue trim, I like to add orange pumpkins on my porch decorated for fall.

A red house is perfect for the autumn season – although I have to admit I’m partial to red houses.

When giving your house curb appeal in the fall season, you can’t go wrong with mums, pumpkins, and corn stalks!

These pumpkins look like they thoroughly enjoy lounging in the front yard.

Are you a fan of fall with its crisp mornings and brilliant colors?

Next week I’ll start showing fall colors that I’m using inside my home. I can’t wait to share – I’ve been busy getting things ready with the hopes of inspiring you to do a little autumn nesting of your own!

  1. Thank you for showing the colors of fall. That is the one thing I do miss since I live in Florida. But we do have signs of fall here. The leaves on the crepe myrtle tree actually do turn colors and fall to the ground.

  2. I couldn’t help but think “Go Gators!” when I saw your beautiful Fall front porch. ????

    I love Fall and all the great colors it brings. Thanks for these pictures of Fall color.

  4. Tina Carpenter says:

    Pretty fall colors. Though I live in Southern Arizona, with the temps in the 80’s & 90’s still, I’m going to decorate for fall this coming week. I’m looking forward to it. Those mums give me inspiration!

  5. Gorgeous colors and gorgeous photos! Each day I get more convinced that fall is my favorite season!
