time for a change

 

autumn

I love fall. I am not sure if it is the crunch of the leaves, the crisp air, or the excitement of my favorite holidays but I love fall !! Candy Corn, Candy Apples, and Hearty soups. Indian corn, gourds, pumpkins, and more.  So I couldn't resist going ahead and decorating for fall.  I should say I have started, no outside decorations yet.  My neighborhood association may write me up for that one.  I took a few pics of a couple of my fall scapes.  Let me know if you have any fun fall decorating ideas. They can't use real fruit of vegetables due to our heat.  My first pic is of my year round tomato cage tree.  I change the decorations for each season.  My daughter decorated this one yesterday.PC190064

This  next one is my version of a pumpkin patch.  Still working on this one.  I need more variety of pumpkins.  PC190062

You can't really tell but the pumpkins are resting on a bed of lit fall leaves.  Closer to Halloween I will turn the pumpkins around to reveal their faces.  Then after Halloween I will add all my pilgrims and Horns of Plenty.  Did I mention I love fall ?

Being down here in South Alabama, I am afraid I am going to have to 'manufacture' fall. We had a mountain right outside our door in North Alabama. Down here it is pine trees and palm trees.

I WANT MY REDS ORANGES BROWNS YELLOWS!!!!

Oh, but in all things give thanks and I have ZERO leaves to rake this year!! WOO HOO!

I still may take some fake leaves and scatter them around my yard and jump in them. :)
