Fall Veranda

9 Comments

Autumn is my favorite time of year, with the temperature getting cooler, all the color in the trees, and pumpkins.  There is just something about a pumpkin that makes me smile.  I’d love to cover our porch with chrysanthemums, but that might get a little pricy with the size of our porch.   So, I gathered the orange flowers I have and put them with a pumpkin at the front door.

Yes, that is the same double hibiscus bargain plant I showed you before.  Those blooms only last one day, and it is still going.  I put the yellow torenia with a salmon color geranium on the other side.

Yes, you see it right, our front door is a sliding glass door. Most of the front of the house is glass. All the better to see the view.  It needed a little more fall color, so I made an autumn wreath to hang up.  It was pretty simple.

Just use seven sprays of fall leaves, then fill in with nine sprays of artificial pine cones with acorns, nuts, and greenery.

Add a ribbon with a big bow at the bottom in a fall print.

The Veranda is long, extending the entire length of the house, and I sprinkle flowers here and there along it.  Sometimes I sit at the table at the far end with my laptop and enjoy the view while I read my favorite blogs.  Sometimes I just take a novel and sit in the rocking chairs.  Sitting out here with a hot cup of coffee in the mornings is just heavenly.

It is lovely to sit in the rocking chairs on a cool afternoon, and watch the colors change in the valley over to the next ridge. Right now it is all green, but a couple of weeks from now it will change to glorious reds, golds, oranges, and browns.

Inside, I put a little spray of fall leaves on the kitchen windowsill, along with two little candle tins with autumn themes.

There are more pumpkins inside, all my fall collection is out with maple leaf ceramic plates and pumpkin bowls, fall themed candles and lots of quilts. I’ll show you more of the inside later.

I am linking this post up with a link party at Chateau Chic. It is all on Fall Front Porches, enjoy the views!

  1. You have a perfect venue for a “Fall Veranda”. LOVELY. I looked at the Chateau Chic pics of Fall Front Porches and they are all great…..gets me in the mood to dig out my clay pumpkin and plop it on the porch!!! HA!!! Obviously I’m not so great at decorating my porch, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love looking at the good ones. I’ll just hide my address and not walk the walk of shame on decorating….

  2. Lovely veranda and love the simplicity! Blessings, Cecilia

  3. Such a wonderful place to watch your view. I am a little jealous of your porch. I wish mine was covered.

  4. Everything looks so lovely, I am a fall person myself and love the fall colors…

  7. Your porch looks so inviting and your wreath is very pretty. Fall snuck up on me, I need to get out my fall and Halloween decorations soon 🙂

  8. Enjoyed the pictures of the porch with the decorations. Too bad you do not have people passing by to see it, but I’m sure you are just as happy not to have the traffic! I’m sure you both enjoy sitting out there on these cool autumn weekends.
