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.
It’s mid-September and we’re enjoying 80-degree temperatures. It’s definitely an Indian summer!
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.
What’s your favorite color mum?

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