the seasons are changing and my front porch too. can you believe tomorrow ushers in the autumn equinox? at a precise time in september, the sun appears directly above the equator marking the exact time of the autumnal equinox in the northern hemisphere. lucky you if your state got the memo in time and your weather is cooperating with cooler temps. after a long, hot, rainy summer this girl is ready for the sights and sounds of autumn. college football (go Dawgs!) is already in full swing, apple cider and pumpkins are making their appearance, and the vibrant color scheme of falling leaves will soon follow. as much as i love summer, i think it’s time to embrace all things fall. and my porch agrees!
oscar is on hand to lend a helping gardening paw. so out go the geraniums and in go the mums! it’s time to plant the window boxes. the trailing coleus got a haircut and the english ivy too. can you believe the stores haven’t received their shipment of pumpkins? we’ll have to add those in one by one. but overall the porch is whipping into shape. take a peek.
love these garden shoes by sloggers. they’re waterproof and have an all-day comfort insole. plus, the lug sole is excellent for traction on slippery surfaces like my front porch. at the end of the day, all i have to do is hose off or wipe down with a wet towel. this gardening toolset has ergonomic handles which help my arthritic hands get a good grip. and i love the ease of the tote bag that stores all my tools when not in use.
one of my favorite porch decorations – the witch is in.
new fall wreath.
isn’t this skeleton adorable? he’s 4′ high and stands on his own. i couldn’t resist adding him to my porch decorations.
the perfect weekend tee.
happy friday, happy fall, oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend!
