Autumn officially arrived yesterday bringing with it chilly evenings, cool mornings and lovely sunny, warm days. Very nice. So of course, I headed up to the pumpkin stands to get more things for the window boxes. I have been gathering bittersweet over the last few days. Bittersweet grows in many places and since it damages trees, I never feel guilty about cutting it and using it in Fall decorations. It is quite beautiful.
I started with the front.
A mum and pumpkin for the steps and Indian corn for the door….
And the little shed.
A few mums add more color.
But some of the window boxes still have summer flowers blooming.
They will stay for awhile.
The coop got a hanging mum..
..but the window box still has summer flowers.
It is just the beginning of Autumn…plenty of time to add more pumpkins and mums. There is still color in the gardens..
These nasturtiums are stunning and still quite happy.
Alyssum seems to go on forever!
And these Clara Curtis mums are late bloomers. They shimmer in the sun and the bees love them.
And with the cooler weather, the borage has decide to have another go…..
Autumn has arrived….the season is changing…but the gardens are not quite done yet!
🍁Happy Fall everyone! 🍁
