I’ve been busy harvesting
pumpkins, gourds, goldenrod,
leaves and pots of mums for
Fall Around The Potting Shed!
A basket on the door is filled with
goldenrod and oak leaves, still green, which
don’t turn in North Carolina
until the end of October.
You’re welcome to peek inside
at the chalkboard door
with a favorite quote and
a touch of Autumn indoors. . .
My window box is liner-free and home for
a medley of gourds and pumpkins for the season.
And a rake has been put into service as a vintage
tool rack with a hanging basket of mums.
Pots of coleus~ pink, green and burgundy,
are still thriving with our 80 degree
temperatures, alongside tricolor mums,
blending the colors of summer and fall.
An olive bucket is filled with goldenrod
and dried grasses harvested
from my field of dreams.
Watering cans, collected through the years with
missing roses were picked up for a song,
and now have acorns for roses instead.
A salvaged chimney pot has been repurposed
as a flower pot for mums.
I’m joining a group of amazing bloggers sharing
Fall Around The House!
