despite the crazy wind and drizzle yesterday i visited my favorite greenhouse to get some fall decor. and i know what your thinking … ‘michael, it’s kinda early … you are weird.’ … but it’s all good. i love fall and i like to make it last as long as possible. so i got some cornstalks. (they even cut them fresh for me … now that’s service!)

the most beautiful ‘cinderella’ pumpkin.

i have no idea what this is (i assume a gourd or pumpkin or squash of sorts) but i love it.

some ornamental kale/cabbage. pretty, pretty! i love the way it changes colors throughout the fall.

and of course. mums. i love the yellow the most because it shows up best from the street.

    The good thing about going from summer to fall are the beautiful colors, mums and pumpkins.
    I had trouble leaving a comment on the decals the other day. The look wonderful you definitely made some great decorating decisions. I have some wall spaces in my home that could welcome some decals. I find the decals less intimidating than hanging artwork or frames.

    I heart mums. I found them for $1.50/each at the grocery and snatched up a bunch for our pots. It looks so festive. I decided that Sept. 1 was appropriate to put out fall, so I went all out. 😉

    Love the cornstalks. My hubby actually saved some for me from the garden. Cool, huh?

    LOVE the yellow mums. They are my fave too. I work at PB part time and they have gorgeous blue/green faux pumpkins that I NEED. They look just like Queensland Blue ones I got in my CSA last year. For the outside I will be getting me some squat and tall pumpkins in a couple weeks. Then I will be shooing squirrels from them the rest of fall.

    Seeing your pumpkins has me itching to go buy some asap… maybe some hay as well :+)

    Those Cinderella pumpkins are truly magical! I can’t wait to start decorating for Fall. It’s still a little early for outdoor decor here as the sun will literally destroy pots of mums and rot pumpkins before October even arrives. You did a great job on the decor!
