Outdoor Fall Decorating

I'm not doing much outdoor decorating this year.  Just doing some fall things in my window boxes and a little in the back yard.

Here are some pictures of the window boxes.  I love changing them with the seasons.



I added some of my dried hydrangeas, some branches from my cranberry bushes, a fall garland, and some fake fall leaves.



There is still some of the wandering jew and kale that I had planted last spring.  Then I added some berry stems and some red dogwood branches.


I stuck in some small gourds as well and added some Japanese lantern light covers to some of the little lights.


Just a couple of touches of fall in the back yard.


Some fall leaves and sunflowers in my asparagus fern on the old treadle sewing machine, a twig pumpkin and a real pumpkin underneath.


And some gerbra daisies added to the asparagus fern in the window box on the garage.



I hope you are all having a colorful fall.

Looks, good, Barb. I am loving that table with what looks like an old sewing machine base. What a great idea (if that is what it is).
