A little Outdoor Decorating

Have you see all the beautiful pictures over at Susan's? @
There are some lovely yards, outdoor decorations. And with the Holidays coming up I don't want to miss any of the gorgeous pictures. It is like looking at a lovely magazine of outdoor decor pictures.

Welcome to my outdoors. I love decorating my patio (front and back) with the colors of the season. I enjoy sitting outside in the mornig with coffee and in the afternoon with ice tea while my hubby feeds the farm animals (chickens, pigeons, sheep, dogs....)

I'll be honest, I love to plant flowers and ivy plants that spill out of wheelbarrows, buckets and terra cotta pots, but I will also add some fall silk flowers here and there to add color where I want it.

Here is my welcoming scarecrow on a very small bale of hay...I came back outside and the dogs were wanting to introduce themselves to him by chewing his hat, his little legs and hands...he looks a little rougher now.
Thank you so much for visiting!

Hi Debbie, I love your post today, your garden looks so cute with all your fall touches! I add some silks here and there in my garden too. I also tuck them in a vase of fresh greens if I don't have any pretty roses in bloom. I loved your previous posts also with the crows and cute cross stitch!
Bless you, Shirl

I really love that you kept the birdhouses with the fall displays!
I was planning on putting mine away but you inspired me not to!

I think your dogs just added authenticity to the scarecrow... they did a good job.
Lovely fall images.
