Fall is finally here

It seems we've waited an extra long time this year, but fall is finally here. Just in time to put out the decorations and not have to worry about rotting pumpkins on the porch. At least not this week... Here are a few of my favorites this year.

On my front porch I use an assortment of ornamental and real gourds and pumpkins. I love decorating for fall.

I actually saw this display in someone's yard a couple of years ago and loved it. I even went as far as printing out the template but that's as far as I've gotten. I can hear my husband "why do your projects always end up my projects".

And my favorite display of all this year was in North Carolina on our recent road trip. There were scores of roadside markets and fields full of pumpkins. Folks there (both homes and businesses) all decorate for the season. And the colors were just magnificent.
