Today I want to show you our fall window boxes and planters... they looked a little rough in our last fall post about the monogrammed pumpkin, didn't they? I found some small sugar pumpkins at the grocery store (29 cents / pound so each pumpkin was right around a dollar) and decided to clear all the straggly flowers out of our dying window boxes. When planning out the boxes this summer we wanted to leave two things in year around to save money and bring continuity (small arborvitaes and English ivy).
In the bottom boxes I added some cabbage that we were growing out back. The boxes are simple and fall-ish... and barely cost anything.
I opted to not add any cabbage to the top boxes since they were about $4 a head and I wasn't about to shell out that for the boxes where they couldn't be seen very well.
Here's a good head on view of our front porch... as always, we are keeping it classy with our one post on the left side. :) I shot this so you could see the simple gourds with the monogrammed pumpkin and mum.
Here are the little gourds up close, I love how they bring great color and will last for at least a month and a half.
Last but not least, a view of our non-existent grass... I mean, house... with some fall flavor!
AJ and I are dying to put a window in the center middle, which would be our master bedroom's closet. Don't you think that'll be so much more pleasing to the eye? It'll help me pick out my clothes too, that way I can see what I'm reaching for and not put on my shirt inside out like I did the other day... and not notice for a few hours... (there isn't a light in the closet). :)
Two things, on a completely different note from gourds and wearing a shirt inside out all day:
