Some small pumpkins line the porch
And mums are in the upstairs window box
I'll get a bigger pumpkin or two right before Halloween
to carve into a scary Jack o Lantern!
Inside there's enough "autumn" to make the house
look seasonal -- it's all real so when the time comes
to decorate for Christmas, it will be tossed.
No storage needed!
The dining room table
sports a cut glass pedestal bowl filled with gourds and pumpkins
A bouquet of flowers in a Waterford vase is on an end table in the living room
And the breakfast room table boasts another Waterford vase filled with autumn color
The back garden:
A pot of mums and a pumpkin on the table under the arbor.
Oh, there are fall plants blooming -- mums that have been here a long time,
Montauk daisies, garlic chives and live forevers.
