Welcome to My Porch

“The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation that you ever had.”

Welcome to my front porch! I finally bought my mums to place among my gourds and pumpkins. I think I still need to buy a few to add here and there, but my large pots have been planted and my geraniums and petunias have begun their new phase in our compost pile ;o)

It is so hard to decide on colors when choosing mums! There are just way too many gorgeous hues available! And with an indecisive gal like me - well it's darn near impossible to decide. This year I went the purple and yellow route. I always seem to be drawn to yellow - it is such a bright and cheery color!

My wonderful mother-in-law surprised me one day with all of these beautiful pumpkins! They were waiting for me in my driveway when I came home from work one day. She knows my love of lumpy, bumpy, oddball pumpkins and did a wonderful job picking the perfect ones!

What color mums did you pick this year? I would love to hear your own special varieties! And don't forget to leave a comment on my blog candy post - if you haven't already!! All you have to do is become a follower (click here if you haven't!)

Happy Decorating!
