~~~WELCOME Fall!!!~~~~~

Hi everyone! I wasn't going to post the porch yet but since it is the first day of FALL, I decided to take some pics and WELCOME you all! It is supposed to RAIN, alot, here for the next few days so I had to take advantage and get some shots!  My impatiens are BOUNTIFUL here in the front of the house. As you can see, they are about 2 feet high! I purposely plant red and orange impatiens in the Spring, so that they will look good through the Fall! I'm smart like that:):)
 The front porch as seen from the driveway.
 This bench is an oldie but a goodie! Last year we stained it EBONY. I love it black and especially in the Fall!
 On the bench I have my scarecrow (who wouldn't scare a flea)!!! along with a pretty, colorful pillow, a clay jack o lantern, a mum and gourds and pumpkins!
 AWWW, isn't he cute???:):)

 I don't "do" spooky! I like FRIENDLY looking pumpkins:):)
 On the other side of the porch is a chair and the round table from the back deck.
 This little guy welcomes you as well.
 I found this great pumpkin at CTS last year! Since it says "Harvest time" I can leave it like this til Thanksgiving! Love that!

 My Joe grew this coleus from a tiny little plant! The colors are SO pretty! He kept it alive over last winter!
 This little pillow was found at CTS also.




I DO welcome Fall! It is a favorite time of year for me. I look forward to apple cider, pumpkin pie and bread, comfort food, wearing different clothes, the smell of candles, and snuggling by a fire! It is still warm right now but cooler weather is right around the corner, I know! You all are WELCOME any time, so please come back!!!! XO, Pinky   I will join some of these parties too:

  7. I agree Pinky it's a great time of year! I always loved your porch decorating and your cute bench with the scarecrow! I love that phrase on that pillow! My impatiens never get quite that tall but I do enjoy the amount of color they provide and for shade planting you can't beat them!

  12. Love it all!! You are SO lucky to have such beautiful flowers. Everything in Texas burned this summer...sadly including thousands of homes.

    Your porch looks fun & festive! I really like the way you've decorated.
