It’s definitely fall here in Minnesota. There’s a chill in the air and it’s been very rainy this past week. We did get a break in the weather over the weekend, so I worked outside a bit. I was able to get a few more perennials in the ground, well, fourteen to be exact. Yeah me! Still on the fall to-do list is planting several daylilies, planting a couple hundred bulbs and moving a few perennials and shrubs. Be sure to check out my previous post on Fall Outdoor Decor Ideas & Vignettes for some more fun, fall porch decor ideas.
I love playing around with fall porch decor and rearranging until I have the perfect vignette. This past weekend I did just that and I’m so excited to show it to you all.
Our front porch is very tiny and most of it isn’t covered, so my fall porch decor has to withstand the elements. I’m really more of a traditional fall decor kind of gal and I love using old vintage pieces that I’ve purchased at flea markets or estate sales.
I’ve had this old chippy wicker basket for a few years now and it gets used quite a bit. So far, it’s holding up fine.
This little vignette is situated on the porch stairs. I love the rays of late afternoon sun gleaming through the mums.
At the bottom of the steps is this vignette featuring the grand buddy’s wagon. I’m sure when he sees it, he’ll ask to go for a wagon ride. And, yes, this Nana will take all the stuff out and give her little buddy a ride.
Other happenings in the garden include lots of mauve and pink colored blooms, including hydrangeas, a few kinds of sedum and foxglove.
Also, the sunflowers finally bloomed and I was able to get a few pictures before the wind blew them over.
I love rubeckia. This particular variety is not considered hardy in my zone 4 garden. However, I have on occasion had them return. I think they are the perfect fall flower.
Is it starting to feel like fall in your area of the country? There’s still plenty of time to add some fall porch decor, even if it’s just a few mums and some pumpkins. Get creative and go for it.
