Happy Weekend, I hope you’re tucked away warm and cozy! Like most of the US, it’s chilly here with temperatures dipping into down the 20s before the weekend is over.
We had a blustery and wet start to our week, but it ended on a ‘Welcome-to-Fall-at-its-Finest’ note.
I took some time to play in the leaves yesterday, enjoying the sunshine and brilliant colors . . .
And gathering the pumpkins for their last hurrah. . .*sniff*
I cut the last of the hydrangeas before they’re frost-nipped this weekend.
Fall is my favorite season and has been late to arrive in North Carolina this year.
But yesterday was a ‘nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning’ kind of day.
Perfect for playing with the leaves, pumpkins and hydrangeas, for their last hurrah!
I used chicken wire in the base of an urn to support the branches of leaves for an easy fall ‘last hurrah’ arrangement.
Endless summer hydrangeas have taken on a purple hue and to pair with purple-tinted foliage of the sweetgum tree.
And our silver maple tree by the water is just starting take on a golden glow.
I used bamboo skewers to add mini pumpkins to the arrangement. The chicken wire supports the weight of the pumpkins tucked in among the foliage.
I love this time of year when the steam fog rises off the water in the morning.
