Diggin' Our Front Porch!

We were busy Planting for fall....

Digging up some dirt
 in our pots so we could plant

Some gorgeous
DEAD
tree branches!!

We pulled out some of our flowers




In one pot we placed rocks around the branches
to keep it stable...

Sure is pretty...
isn't it???

OK....maybe "pretty"
by Halloween standards!


In this planter we left our Russian Sage in this pot
and added the rocks, the vintage shovel
& one of our Solar Garden Lights in the pot.


A perfect planting!!


And what, you ask, is this?


 Why, it's one of our fabulous fall topiaries
we created to flank our entrance!

If you'd like to know how we did this...

Love these pictures. The milky blue porch posts with the orange pumpkins is my favorite shot.
Isn't fall just magical?
And if I had time I would love to do your topiary...but will continue to just looking for them on clearance at TJMaxx.
Cheers,
