I decided to start some outside fall decor. It was not an easy task since my summer flowers are still holding on. They are just not ready to say good bye. So I thought ok what to do???
I mixed what is still hanging on of summer with fall decor. A little crazy I know but the only compromise I could find since I was not ready to throw away the flowers that still have some life in them.
So I moved all the summer that was still thriving from the back deck to the front yard under the tree. This way I only have to water the front yard now. They are starting to get a little scraggly from the cooler temps and the bad water we have in our town but they still make me smile so I am holding on to them a little while longer.
|So we still have a little bit of summer hanging around.|
|Petunia's love and thrive in most weather conditions. They like it hot as long as they get watered and they like the cool nights and cooler days too. They are little troopers that do not want to say goodbye.|
|I got my front door decorated for fall. I made a wreath. I got a basic wreath at Michael's Craft Store and added all the pumpkins and flowers and burlap bow to the wreath. This way I could mix in some white and burlap with the oranges and yellows.|
|I like the way the colors pop on my yellow cottage door.|
|These summer plants are still thriving too. The sweet potato vine is taking on a life of it's own so I just decided to add the fall decor to the summer plants. A little crazy I know but this way my summer plants can have some more time.|
|I brought around my white wagon and the two plants in the wagon are going strong. I can't remember the name of these pretty little yellow flowering plants but they are doing great and are fall in color so they looked cute in the wagon. I added some faux fall flowers and decor to the wagon in with the live plants. The sweet potato vine in my watering can and yellow petunias are still going great too so I just added them to the decor too.|
|Found this cute sign today at Home Goods. Loved the colors and the shape of this sign.|
|So there you have it. Summer is almost saying good bye and fall is moving in. It is kind of fun having the live plants still from summer mixed with the fall faux flowers and pumpkins.|
Have a great day.
Hope your fall decorating is underway.
