Fall Decorating II

Yesterday was another wonderful Fall day, breezy, cool and sunny.  I started to decorate my potting table.  Click on any photo for a closer look.
 See the green pumpkin on my little truck?  It is the one and only pumpkin I grew this year.  It sprung up out of my compost.  An accidental pumpkin!

 I built a fire in my fire pit.

 And I lit up all of my blow molds.

 Then I ran out and bought a bunch of mums.  I went to Lowes and found something interesting.  Their larger mums were 24.99 each.  However, their smallest mums were on sale for 88 cents, I guess they were having trouble keeping up with the watering.  I bought 24 of them for less than what one large one would have cost.  I planted a bunch of them in each planter and they will grow in and be even more colorful than if I purchased the big ones.   Now I need straw bales, cornstalks and pumpkins!
