This year, I was just
procrastinating waiting for the right time. The downpours have started, and the kids are asking for hot cocoa, so I figured it was time. There are a few remnants of summer on the front porch.
(Can I even call it a porch, or is it just a landing? There is a chair and a built in bench, so I’m allowing myself to say I have a front porch.)
I still have the leftover petunias from my home’s summer look. I bought those in the “plant hospital” section at the garden center at the beginning of summer. They looked horrible, so I brought them home, gave them a huge haircut, and started fertilizing. Not bad for a $1 plant! They have lasted all summer, and then some.
The pumpkins will be part of Front Door Fall-ification Phase 2. I can’t jump the gun too soon on that one. Plus, my kids want to spookify the house when we decorate for Halloween. I really dislike spooky Halloween! Pretty fall decorations are great, and spooky is just not fun and inviting. My kids beg to differ and I’m not really looking forward to the battle.
They are the perfect outdoor pillows for fall!
