Yesterday - a dear friend brought me a gift (thank you!)
- 3 small pumpkins and a mum. Timing was perfect
to create some needed front porch decor.
First up - I placed the 'generic greenhouse' black pot into
a pretty yellow pot that I saved from somewhere - much better!
While scouring for the the yellow planter - I noticed the
wooden barrel that I brought home from my booth last week.
I was already planning to do a galvanized tub display
- inspired by this blog post. But I needed something
to put the plant on... the barrel will work fine.
I planned to fill the the tub with pumpkins. Volunteer pumpkins have been growing in my flower bed.
(LOVE that they're free - but did have to tolerate an unplanned messy flower bed ALL season!)
But I do not have enough to fill my tub yet - so filler was required.
See the peek of green below? They are large faux
evergreen Christmas balls and they'll work just great.
Some pinecones (the BIG ones - forget what they're called) also help
fill my tub. It pays to save stuff! I use these at Christmas too.
|You can't beat the detail of this beauty.|
A Fall topiary in a tub? Has a bit more presence than I
was originally thinking & might be seen better from the road.
And those light colored pumpkins? Butternut squash!
They make the best pumpkin pie ever!
