Nothing says welcome like a wreath. My front porch flowers in red, white and blue had to go, especially after the heavy frost we had Saturday night. So I pulled out this old clearance sale berry wreath and tucked a few silk leaves in it for extra color. It works for me and it was free:>)
I also picked my 22 lb. pumpkin from the garden. I had another but the deer ate it last night, just one night before I planned to get it! They were/ are Cinderella pumpkins but the frost killed the vines and I don't think it will ever ripen to the pretty orange it should be. I'll start them sooner next spring because I love my pumpkin! Do you see the beautiful crab apples tucked around it? Darling husband found them for me in the woods. The tree just sprang from nowhere but the fruit on it is beautiful. We went back and cut some more branches and I tucked some in the urn on my front porch to add a little color to my dying geraniums.
I love decorating with natural things and I love the color on these crabapples. Perfect red and gold.
I even had enough to fill a vase and, with a few added maple leaves, it adds a nice touch of fall color to a corner of the living room.I have another busy week ahead of me, but I feel like I accomplished one small thing just for me with this little touch of fall decorating. I hope you all take a moment to do something that makes you smile this week:>)
