Outdoor Fall Decorating

Hey everyone!  HOpe your week has been blessed.
Today I am going to focus on the outdoor...getting it ready for fall, and enjoying the fall decor outdoors.
Another wonderful aspect of our Autumn Bliss celebration....

Don't you love driving up to someone's home...
and they have taken the time to make the entrance

I want our farmhouse to be welcoming to those who visit.. I have been working on for some time
on our outdoor patio.
Getting things ready even this summer for this time of year.

 When you farm you have to plant things ahead of time so they will harvest at the right time. You may go for some time without seeing your harvest...but if you have planted the seeds you know the harvest will come.

What kind of seeds have you planted?  hahaha....I do know whatever you plant...that is what will get.  Seed produces after its own kind. God created seedtime and harvest. YOu plant seeds...wait...and then get your harvest.

One thing I love to do is plant mums ahead of time so they will blossom and make a lovely showing during the fall.  You see...I love colors...I love flowers....AND I DON'T CARE FOR GENERIC when it comes to outside flowers!

Why would anyone want just a generic shrub, plant or tree when they can have something that grows and look beautiful at the same time.
 I love to tuck in mini pumpkins here and there...
 of course the chickens love pumpkins too so they enjoy fall too.

 I plant with the future in mind...things that will come back year after year....they are called perennials as you probably know.  

 The vintage bathtub is filled with fall flowers...I love to drive up and see lots of color instead of  nothing in the bathtub but dirt and shrubs. It doesn't take much to add vibrant color and it is my 'SOUL CANDY'  when I see flowers. What is your 'SOUL CANDY' ?
So glad you came by for a visit.

Joining in of course with fun parties!
