This pillow on the swing tells the season, but it really isn't fall here except on the calendar. We'll have "late summer" a bit longer, and then if we are lucky, October will bring us cooler weather. However, it's usually not until November we see the trees change colors. I remember taking a picture one Christmas Day with beautiful fall leaves all over my Mother's yard and grand kids sitting right in the middle of them.
Our yard and gardens look like late summer too. The St Augustine grass has decline, lots of flowers have brown foliage with just a few blooms left, and lots of things look tired and leggy.
So..what I do is add little touches of fall to my
little backyard. Hope you enjoy how I add fall to a late summer garden.
A mum and grapevine pumpkin surround this rock. Wish I had a tiny pumpkin to sit in the bird feeder!
On the table by the swing..
Pumpkins add such a fall look--even when it's still 90 degrees!

Yellow mums are my favorite.
Can you tell I like scarcrows?? :)
