The Potting Shed is dressed for fall with pumpkins, mums and corn stalks for a celebration of fall and harvest season!
We’ve had a week of beautiful fall weather with daytime temperatures in the 70s, dipping into the 40s and 50s at night. We’re warming up again this week to summer-like temperatures in the 80s but I’m staying in a fall state of mind. . .
With thoughts of apple orchards, hot cider, harvest feasts, hay rides, pumpkin patches and corn mazes!
When I found this directional fall sign at T. J. Maxx several weeks ago, I knew I wanted to plant it by my Potting Shed! I added a few sprigs of bittersweet vine to embellish it and along with more bittersweet vine to wind along a bird topiary form to replace the clematis that is no longer in bloom.
The golden light of fall is one my favorite things about the season, when the low slanting light paints everything in a soft warm glow.
Corn stalks flank the door of the Potting Shed for a fall welcome. . .
Tricolor mums marry the brighter colors of summer with the burnished and deeper hues of fall.
And a bittersweet vine wreath frames a vintage tole tray on the door.
The window box is liner free with a harvest of gourds and pumpkins.
You can find mesh bags of assortments of gourds and pumpkins from Lowe’s and Walmart for just a few dollars. I placed terra cotta pots in the back of the window box for space filler and placed the gourds and pumpkins in front of them. The pots provide a place for the top row of pumpkins to sit safely and be visible.
The field next to my shed is blooming with feathery grasses. . .
And it will soon be time for a Hay Bale Harvest!
Hope you’re enjoying some beautiful fall weather where you are!
