Park Your Broom

The brooms are made (see here), so is the sign (here).  Add a pumpkin and some mums and we are ready for Fall:
How about a close-up of the broom parking area?

The petunias, in the planter (see that transformation here), were replaced with a mum for the season. 

I also replaced the hanging geranium in the apple basket with another beautiful mum:
Since I had success with it last year, the mums will all be saved over the winter and planted in the ground in the Spring.  I'm also hoping to regrow the geranium so it can go back in the apple basket.
The spider web doormat is in place and we are ready for Fall!

The temperatures around here have been flirting with 70, so it's just been heavenly working outdoors.  The weatherman predicts some freezing temperatures overnight in the next few days, though.  I'll be covering/bringing-in those mums to keep them flowering for a few more weeks!

Thank you for stopping by the Cottage  - How are you decorating for Fall?

  1. Saw your cute porch on Creative Spark Link. I love those brooms--where did you get them? So far I've been using old cinnamon brooms but they're not as tall. The other day I saw a sign, "If the broom fits, ride it." Lots of broom signs to make for next fall. :)

  4. I had to go check out the brooms, clever girl, they turned out perfect. Free could not be better, and your porch says Welcome Halloween.
