The Virginia creeper turns bright orange and red
The Dogwood leaves are a deep red, almost burgundy color
I always like to use a pumpkin as a planter and fill it with ornamental cabbage and orange violas.
My Mom's scarecrow gets ready for the fall picture with the Grandkids. I think he looks a little lonely sitting there all by himself.
Sometimes the jack O'Lanterns look out of place next to the still blooming summer flowers!
The last rose of summer! My roses get way too hot in the summer, but they are gorgeous in the fall.
The inside of my house takes on a fall transformation as well!
And another great thing about fall is our celebration of Thanksgiving and a a time to count our blessings. Perhaps the shorter days with cooler weather give me a time for more reflection and opportunities to be grateful.
