There have been so many pictures online of beautiful, inspiring front porches decorated for the season that I thought I ought to share mine. I have this gorgeous set of iron planters that I always have something going on in. This fall it is chrysanthemums in the perfect autumn colours, homegrown pumpkins, gourds, and corn. There is a wreath made from Engelmens Ivy and a few handmade brooms I threw together with caragana branches, twigs and grass.
On the other side are my set of black, basket weave planters. They contain another chrysanthemum, poplar brances, corn stalks, cattail grass and a couple of super cute gifts from my sister. She gave me that little ghost solar lantern and, look closely, there is a crow she created from corn husks. I have no idea how she did this, but I plan on going out for a lesson. I also had a couple of pumpkins that lost their stems, and so they have been stacked and topped with a gourd, that apparently is trying to blend in with his cousins. That is the only one I have out of 21 gourds that has turned orange
