Autumn Porch

I started decorating my front porch yesterday.  I need more orange pumpkins and the mums still have to bloom but at least it is a start.
 I started with a leaf garland.  Click for a closer look.

 I added life sized sunflowers.  I hope Teddy doesn't try to eat these leaves!

 I added some glittery leaves under the big pumpkins.

 Then some colored leaves.  I added Chinese lanterns and some decorative grasses.

 The small pumpkins need to be moved to the back garden and I need a bunch of orange ones for the steps.  To be continued!

 This is my favorite decoration.

so beautiful, can't wait till fall! Down here in South Carolina it is still 90 degrees! I'm envisioning pumpkins, apple cider, and mums as I look at your awesome front porch :)

Is Teddy dreaming of a sunflower garden?

Well, you are off to a great start. Now I get to watch your porch morph for the next couple of weeks until by the time Autumn is here...it is a glorious golden entry into your home. I have done nothing to mine at all..and today my neighbor came over and asked what was wrong with me! She is right..I am late! Those large pumpkins are wonderful!
Teddy? Well, I've a feeling she means business there at the entry of her home...yep..wouldn't want to mess with her... :)
