Fall on the Porch

I thought I would take some pictures of my porch before the mums die.

They seem to be hanging in there though, despite my non-green thumb!

I am the first to admit, I can’t keep plants alive.

I mean how hard is it to just water these things when they need it?

As long as they last through Halloween I will be happy though!

I think mums are an essential part of outdoor Halloween decor!

They add so much color and a festive fall feel.

This weekend we will be carving these.  Needless to say, the kids can’t wait.

As you can see, they added their own decor to the windows.

These little stick-ons came in my wonderful Halloween “Spook Basket”!

And I still have my sign up to ward off any more “secret ghosts”.

I bought this fruit hanging in Michaels a few years ago.

I just had them add the ribbon.

And there you have my fall porch.  We’re almost ready for those tricker treaters!

Only a few more days – hang in there mums!

Can you keep your plants alive?

  1. Beautiful colors – I know what you mean the mums never last long enough. I have been pinching the dead heads off of mine hoping they will continue to put on new buds.

  2. Looks great! I have a green~ish thumb and mums are tough for me…I fertilize and water the heck out of them, and still I'm lucky to make it to Halloween. I love how the kids added their own touch 😉

  3. Mums always say "fall", and yours look especially great! I am a horrible gardener…I get all these grand plans and then forget to water. And I also absolutely hate to pull weeds!

  5. So pretty….I love the color combo of the mums and the pumpkins! My 13 year old already got into the Halloween candy….I have to buy more for the trick or treaters!
