Falling Around in the Backyard

Fall Deck Display

We spend a lot of our time on the deck in the backyard. From April through November to be exact. As soon as the last of the snow melts in Spring, right up to the first snowfall of Winter we are using that area of our home. It’s our outdoor room. If the weather permits and it’s not to cold we are usually sitting out there eating, talking and relaxing. One Thanksgiving it was warm enough to have dinner out there, but we decided to eat in the dining room to keep the day special. We only use the dining room a few times of the year and it’s formal atmosphere is a nice change.
The swing is the most popular piece of furniture on the deck. Who can’t resist a porch swing? I have it dressed with these lovely fall pillows. Their size is perfect for it. A few cozy throws are draped on the side of the swing just incase the temperature starts to drop.

In front of the swing is this old rusty iron bench I’ve had for a long time. I like to use it as a plant stand. I created a fall display on it with mostly winter cabbage. I nestled in some designer style pumpkins and a lantern to make it look full and pretty.

My bird wall planter box is filled with small white pumpkins this time. I tied thin orange with white dot ribbon on some of the stems. The size of these pumpkins fill the planter perfectly.

The trees in the backyard are changing beautifully! Just as I write this today there are more reds and orange in the back ground that have popped up. How fast the leaves change their colors. It seems that one day they’re green and the next they’re yellow, orange, red or purple. It’s just sad the fall foliage don’t last longer.

These are the lovely umbrella bird feeders I posted on in August. They look a bit different around the changing foliage.

This is another view from my deck of my secret garden that I just posted on.

How full my hydrangea tree has gotten. In just a year it has grown much. The blooms this year are beautiful and very abundant. I love how they start out white and develop into this pinkish color.

  1. LuAnn, your backyard is so pretty! I’m with you…fall is way too short. I live across the way from Longwood Gardens and have the joy of watching the seasons change at that beautiful place. I try to walk there 4-5 times a week, and with their ever-changing floral displays, I never leave without thinking just how fortunate we are to live near such a wonderful place. Wishing you many joyful fall days!
