Color is finally showing in some of the trees, and I wanted a pretty veranda for our recent company to enjoy. I thought it would be nice to add a quilt to the tableau, fall inspired and cozy feeling. The little pie pumpkin will become pumpkin bread in a couple of weeks. I found dark red chrysanthemums at the local store, and got two. I couldn’t resist putting a small quilt out too.
A larger pumpkin is sitting near the front door, with the other deep red chrysanthemum.
The begonias and impatiens are still blooming, and I cannot bear to throw them out while they are.
I did bite the bullet on the torenia hanging baskets, and took them down. They really were ragged. There was a lot of green still in the forest when I rearranged the pots to form this grouping in the corner of the veranda. Those pink flowers just don’t go with my fall theme, but I am still watering them.
My thrift store find Halloween metal hanger is hanging on the outside wall, just down the way a bit from the harvest wreath near the door. It is fun, even though we have never had trick-or-treaters.
At the last minute before company came, I found two orange daisy plants, so I put them in a basket and placed them with the pumpkin. It made a festive fall grouping near the door.
Along the driveway, the trees began to show a bit of autumn in the past week.
There was a bit more coming along farther down the driveway.
Early one morning last week, I pulled up the shade in the kitchen window to this lovely scene. It is so pretty when an early morning fog settles into the valleys. The layers of hills and mountain are brought into sharper relief with the fog. The rising sun over the mountain to the east lit the neighbor’s tree beautifully.
Zooming the lens a bit closer, lovely isn’t it?
It still is too warm, and I am looking for it to cool off more. I am working on Scrap Dance 3 for you, dear readers. More on that a bit later.
Today is the last day to enter all the drawings, so if you missed one, you have time today to get in a comment. I’ll be drawing winners tomorrow and notifying you by email. We will wrap up Autumn Jubilee Friday.
Is there some color at your part of the world?
