Here I was just getting started. Then I tweaked some more.
delights! I've started with my favorite blue greens shades and purple kale varieties. My garden frog has just the right shabby patina to pull the colors together. Plus he will double as a Halloween
decoration when the witches and cauldrons appear!
Oh it's just Pure eye candy to me. I can never get enough! Let's just hope the deer don't think so too!
Lookin good, but still needs more...
Today I added another purple kale, and a dark green pumpkin on the plant stand I got for $1 at a yard sale this weekend to the left side, and I found a new (second hand) pot with gorgeous patina for the other side, and stuck a pretty pale purple (say that three times fast) mum to the left side. Love how the height of the pumpkin on the plant stand adds interest and the juxtaposing textures and colors of all the fruits and foliage blend into fall brilliance. God is awesome, fall is a gift!
green and create a dramatic color scheme rather than stacking pumpkins and gourds on the urns as I
had originally intended. I love when the unexpected completely thwarts my plans and I have to force myself to go with it. It usually turns out even better than what I envisioned at first. I have plenty of other urns elsewhere in the landscape anyway, and as the season progresses I'll stack 'em up with fairytale pumpkins and gourds.
I'm already decorating the rest of the porch and yard in my mind, so now I need to look around here and see what junk I can consign to make some pumpkin money! Hopefully by next week I'll have more to show. Here's a sneak peak of my buffet too!
Fall is in the air and it's the first one in our new house so I'm inspired with lots of new ideas and things to post. I hope you'll stop by again soon!
