I have been trying to decorate the outside of my home for a few weeks, but it seems many things are against me. First I bought mums that were late blooming, so that I could have them longer. The only thing is they are not blooming for my pictures. Then it started raining and kept up for days. So the one morning I got up it had stopped raining and even though it was cloudy I decided to take pictures. Well, that day the fountain pump broke. So next year I will have pictures of the fountain running…maybe.
This would be the scarecrows view as he looks across the front of the patio. I love how big and festive the zinnias are by fall.
This is a closeup of the basket to the left of the front door.
When I was taking pictures I was just amazed at the beauty of nature around me and how the plants that looked so beautiful in summer have now recreated themselves for fall. A hydrangea tree whose flowers have now turned green and pink.
An American Beautyberry bush now with purple berries.
More lantanas and hydrangeas in the back of the house
