Fall on the Patio and Around the Pond!

I LOVE decorating my patio for Fall!!! I also love sitting out there in the afternoon to read and in the evening with a glass of wine. When it gets chillier we will have a fire in the fireplace!!! I have this cozy throw for chilly evenings.
 The wicker trunk holds ALL the cushions and pillows when it rains! They all fit in there then I cover them all with 2 green trash bags IN the trunk to protect them even more.

 This jack o lantern sits on a spider holder.
 The mums are doing very well!
 3 solar lanterns and 2 small pumpkins line the steps.

 Cushions and pillows make it comfy for our guests too.
 I have not been able to find another pumpkin in the right size for my stack but it's fine with just 2 for now....plus I need to ask Joe to trim back the stem on the white one.

 The fireplace is ready for those chilly nights. We can leave it here and move the chairs or put it right in the center of the patio.
 The lantern on the hook holds bug spray and has a remote:)
 I filled my copper watering can with some faux foliage but will be putting some real things in it soon.

 Now we can look around the pond!  This is the view from the side yard, approaching the patio.
 The mums that have come back from last year are amazing!!!
 The other day, Joe and I cut back plants in the pond and some around the pond getting ready for winter:( I see we left the kneeling pad out, sorry:)
 The Japanese maple is putting out new growth!

 The mulch is being torn up by some critter. Several neighbors have this problem and we don't know what is doing it.
 
Thanks for your visit! I love to hear from you, so leave me a comment!

  1. Looks wonderful, Pinky. So relaxing to sit and read there, I bet. Maybe there are some little moles tearing up the mulch. They stay underground so you don't see them.

    1. We actually think it may be voles. We got some things at Lowes that emit a sound and haven't seen new disturbance since that.

  9. Your patio and pond area are just beautiful, Pinky! What a fun place to entertain. I don't know for sure, but could the critter be a mole?

  11. Looks great Pinky! I like the special fall touches you've added. I hope it's not voles that are visiting. We had some and they destroyed some shrubs and an ornamental tree. They eat the roots and lower vegetation on the plants.
