Something red caught my eye as I started out on a walk the other day.
Bending down for a closer look, a photo opportunity presented itself.
Here our fall color change is just getting underway which makes me want to be outdoors enjoying the show before it comes and goes for another year.
The coleus by the front door were looking a tad scraggly.
A few gourds and a happy scarecrow were added to cheer things up.
This year that wreath is a bit bittersweet.
Around this time last year a neighbor friend made it for me. She had so much talent with making wreaths and floral arrangements. Shortly before Easter she passed away unexpectedly. She would never take payment for her creations. Instead she requested a homemade apple pie for Thanksgiving. She will be remembered as I am preparing my pies next month.
It won't be long until my house plants will be moving back indoors for the winter.
In the meantime, I added a few pumpkins to the patio to herald the season.
I added a leafy garland and a pumpkin to the patio table.
The garland lights up adding nice ambience to the evenings.
Over the weekend we took a walk through the woods and noticed that somebody had been decorating in there.
In the woods there is a tree house built around a large old tree.
It's a popular destination for visiting grandchildren.
Small pops of color to be found here and there.
I see many more woodsy walks in our future.
Somehow I always seem to pick up treasures on my woodsy walks.
Pockets and hands are filled when I get home.
There are some really cool nut pods that are partially opened. I think they might be hickory nuts. Might have to pop them all in a basket for another fall decoration.
