I've never really had a big front porch. I've lived in new houses most of my life, and with them came small porches. So when I moved to the mountains, I was glad to have a big porch area. I wanted to get a pumpkin for my front porch, and I found just the right one at the grocery store.
I was looking for some Mums because they always remind me of Fall, but couldn't find any. But I did find some mini roses that looked Fallish.
Roses seem to follow me wherever I go, don't they? This color was very much like the inside of a grapefruit, very pretty.
They were wrapped in an orange cellophane, which looked like Fall, so I kept it on.
I've had this plaque for many years. My oldest brother, who passed away, used to sing this song often. One day, I found this plaque that reminded me of him and bought it. We were 10 years apart, and while he was the oldest, I was the youngest.....just like Nel and her brother. My mother and brother's birthdays are in September, so I put it on the porch to keep them close to me.
A few small items make a lovely Fall porch.
And my favorite part of the porch is the woods that surround me.
I made some apple cinnamon bread. It's beginning to feel like Fall around here.
And Jess made some Harvest Mix. It's starting to become a Fall tradition in her home.
