This year the front porch is decorated with a mum, pumpkins and the wreath I made last year. I added some corn shocks that look kind of skimpy so I may add more stalks. I put mums in the plastic caldron that I usually use to hold Halloween candy and one pumpkin sits in an urn. I don’t decorate too much for Halloween, just fall, as a sort of celebration for the season because I love everything about fall; the colors of leaves, pumpkins and gourds, the smell of wood fires, apples and a chill in the air, it’s a beautiful season!
I have one fern on the porch and think it will be okay until frost hits. Several ferns are still on the patio. I can’t keep ferns alive inside all winter. I tried in the past but they always lose leaves and get too messy, so I give up. But I’ll probably bring them in again this year.
We added a storm door on the front porch that I have a love/hate relationship with. I love opening the door and letting more light in but hate the way it looks from the outside. Here’s the post with the stenciled pumpkin wreath tutorial.
Since the weather has been so pretty I decided to add some Fall decorations to the patio.
I added fall accents from my stash to the baker’s rack beside the back door.
I pulled up a hot pepper plant and used it on the top shelf along with a sunflower seed pod.
I brought all the ferns up close to the back door to keep them from getting hit with frost. So far they’re doing fine.
It would be wonderful if the beautiful weather would last all year. Imagine perfect temperatures, not too hot or cold all year round. Love that!
