Our yard is popping with Fall color right now,
+ it’s everything I can do to keep from snapping photos all day!
The weather was nice + warm, albeit drizzly, on Halloween,
so up went the hood on my Cardinals sweatshirt + outside I went!
Here’s what caught my eye initially . . .
. . . beautiful golden Chokeberry shrub leaves against our dark brown fence:
In a nearby corner is my vintage Purple Martin birdhouse:
(Past) time to move everything inside for the winter!
I dread this project so much!
Did I mention that, by now, I’d hoped G.O. would have moved my roof spire
from this garage to the one at our fixer upper?
Now on to the front of our house:
Okay, so maybe it’s (past) time to take down my Cardinals flag, too!
Every yard needs at least 1 Japanese maple tree, too!
We have 3.
Looking east toward our neighbor’s spectacular burning bush:
Back toward our house.
Those window boxes filled with begonias still look pretty festive!
Our friends, Stacey + Erik Olson,
surprised me with a pair of concrete “sausage dogs”,
one on our current porch
+ “his sister” over at the Dutch colonial fixer upper!
And, speaking of still looking (somewhat) festive,
take a look at the rose climbing our front arbor!
You GO, climbing rose!
Every yard should have roses, too.
I think ours has 12 climbers +/or shrubs.
Who knew? — that every Thanksgiving,
we’d still have plenty of roses
for our table centerpiece!?
