Fall flowers

It's time for mums and some fall decorating.

I picked up a few mums at the garden center the other day.

When I got them home I thought I'd put them in some pretty pots.

Hmmmm, decisions, decisions.

This one I put by the back door.

This one looks pretty on the screened in porch.

One for the table in the garden.

And one for the table on the patio.

I also stopped at Goodwill after going to the garden center and look what I found. Some bright colored bottles...

for my glass bottle art tree!

I love mums, but I really love that bottle tree art. Did you come up with that on your own? Impressive Donna.

I love mums. Nothing says fall like those flowers. Your bottle tree is so cute. Can you leave those bottles out all winter?

Hi Donna, love your mums!! By the way, I'm with you on this one, I never go anywhere without make up on. : )

Mums are beautiful, and I love their earthy fragrance.
they add a lovely splash of colour to your garden. The bottle tree is a fun idea. I've never seen that before.
Read your previous post. I never leave home without make up

Your mums look wonderful, and they added great color. I picked up a few last week, but I might not be able to resist buying a few more.

What a brilliant idea... a bottle tree. I love colored glass and never know what to do with them to make them stand out... now I know.

I enjoy your doxie pictures and stories. We used to have two mini's.. a wire haired and a smooth.

Mums in pretty pots.....perfect! Of all the ones I planted last fall to dress up the yard for Tara's Wedding, there must have been a dozen plants, only two came up this summer. I love Mums but I do not have a green thumb for over wintering them.

I love your mums...I always looks forward to mums as a sign of fall. Love the bottles too. Did you get some rain? My parents live near you and they said a storm was coming.

Have a great weekend!
