Fall Touches Inside and Out

 I decorated the top of my piano with a bucket of hydrangeas and few silk florals.

I don't do a lot of interior decorating for fall~just a few touches.
 Lets go outside and see what is new in the yard~
summer is waning and the garden is testament to that.
 Purple asters are in bloom under the cherry tree 
now with just a sprinkling of roses left.
 The old iron bed is still covered with morning glories.
 This is also where my roses and tomatoes grow, side by side.
 The tomatoe plants have been pulled out, save one.
An iron bird bath is new to the garden from summer antiquing runs in New Hampshire.
 If your birdbath is too deep I was told to
 put a rock in it so the birds 
will have a stepping stone~they don't like a deep bath.
 A vintage wire plant stand holds tiny mums
 and assorted clay pots by the front door.
 I plan to add some small pumpkins to the stand soon.
A few more pumpkins will fill the old iron planters too~
Yes, fall is on the way to Boston.

    And... the wreath on the front door is FABULOUS! It's the best wreath i've seen. WOW! I love it... That one sets the standard for all front door fall wreaths!


  14. I love the bucket of flowers on your piano. The front door wreath is great too. I can just imagine those iron flower pot holders filled with pumpkins and mums. That is going to look fabulous. I need to get busy on fall decorating myself. It's still pretty hot here - 80's. Too warm for pumpkins...I think. But soon.....

  15. Your garden is still beautiful even in this transitional period. I really think the door wreath is especially lovely. Enjoy your weekend. Ginger

  19. Your Home & Garden are so beautiful! I love visiting your piece of Heaven..


  20. Hi Amy....Your outdoor area is wonderful. Love, love, love your plant stand with the pots and the fall wreath. I bet your autuman decor will look even better with the beautiful fall you have up north. Have a great weekend!


  21. Not to be dumb, but are tomatoes annuals and you replant them every year or do you just put them away for the winter? Do you leave all your iron stuff, like the bed, outdoors or pack it away for winter? Even here, in CA, we pack some stuff away. Most of my garden stuff is plastic and can stay outdoors. :)

  22. Beautiful, Amy ... love the pops of Fall color! Your Fall front porch is stunning! xo

  23. Amy your fall touchings are fabulous. You did an amazing job my dear!
