Hi there, Friends! Even though it's still quite warm here, it is officially fall and it's been awhile since I've shared the garden. Join me for a leisurely stroll ...
We haven't had any cooler weather to speak of yet so I haven't gone all out on pumpkins or fall plants, but I did add a pot of cheerful yellow mums to my vintage garden bike basket and a few pumpkins, too.
These pretty lavender asters are one of my fall favorites--love them next to the sunny wildflowers!
You may remember the vintage garden bike I received from Dear Firstborn last summer. It just needed a little love and I have thoroughly enjoyed it ever since. See how it looked before, here.
Before the season of rain we had about a month ago, I trimmed back all of the mint. It was scraggly then, but now it's grown back like a fragrant carpet of green.
Golden lantana and blue sage complement each other nicely. That's one of my many rosemary bushes next to the house...
...and another wearing her blooms of blue reserved for fall and spring.
Lush sweet potato vine thrives in a repurposed fountain before the temperatures drop.
Knock out roses will continue to bloom through the fall.
A faux metal jack o'lantern sports an herby hat of chocolate mint. Stay tuned for the technique for him...
...and the faux terracotta pumpkin head on my repurposed vintage milk can scarecrow.
Join me tomorrow, when I'll be guest posting on The Art of Thrifting at White Spray Paint!
Happy fall, y'all!
