Whooooo besides me is ready for fall?
Fall is my favorite season and I’m counting down the days. . . ready for crisp, cool weather,
While I love to set a beautiful table, I also enjoy a little whimsy, (see last week),
so woodland friends have gathered in the Potting Shed in anticipation of fall’s arrival,
wearing their best party hats!
Chipmunks are chattering about the arrival of pumpkin season. . .
And Chloe the Jack Rabbit’s whiskers are twitching in anticipation of fall!
Margaret the Deer is all aflutter over a woodland gathering. . .
Daisy the Fox is dressed for the season, adorned with a plaid ribbon, leaves and acorns. . .
And Mazey the Squirrel is foraging for acorns and squirreling them away for winter!
Assorted harvest plaid plates add some warm fall color and pattern . . .
While tree slice chargers and twig flatware add a woodland note.
A symbol of harvest season, Indian corn, hangs on a rake above the window,
along with dried hydrangea blooms.
Owl stemmed glasses were a recent purchase, fun for a woodland gathering,
Limelight Hydrangea blooms are making transition from summer to fall, turning
from white to green and will acquire a pinkish / bronzy hue over the next few weeks.
I cut some hydrangeas to fill some DIY Tree Bark Flower Vases.
Fall is a great time to plant shrubs in your garden!
If you’re looking for an easy to grow, low maintenance shrub that will
provide you with beautiful cut and dried flowers too, see
my public service announcement: Plant a Limelight Hydrangea…or Five.
Hydrangeas blooms are ready to dry when they begin to feel ‘papery’,
which will be in about a couple of weeks in our zone 7b garden.
Meet ‘Owlivia’, an Eastern Screech-Owl. . .
She’s in her natural habitat, enjoying the camouflage provided by a tree bark vase.
