It's starting to look like Fall...

This morning I went out and gardened for a few hours...it's still quite warm here...when I came in at 11:45 it was 84 degrees. Not too bad for this time of year...we have been hotter! As I was weeding and trimming, I picked some of the veggies still growing. We have a ton of peppers, and still quite a few tomatoes. Today it was all yellow ones and just one small red one and one cherry. The tomato plants are fading, but they still have blooms on them. The tomatoes are getting smaller as the days get shorter.

Since we got out the Autumn decorations...I have been busy.

I have had this stick scarecrow for so many years now...I noticed this morning the rim of his hat is cracking! Poor guy...my neighbor got me this ear of corn for him quite a long time ago too.

This is the mat on the front porch...I got it a couple years ago at Target.





This is the top of the hutch in the kitchen eating area. I didn't do too much up there...just a wooden pumpkin bowl filled with fake pumpkins and gourds and a garland of berries.


I got this little wagon a couple years ago too. I worked for 20 years for Longs Drugs Stores as an administrative assistant and we got the best discount for these kinds of things...we only had to pay cost + 10%...that's unheard of...well, when CVS bought our company...I got laid off, so no more good buys like this! I think I only paid a couple dollars for it!






Here's a little plant poke I like a lot...I love scarecrows!






Another scarecrow...I don't have a lot of big things...I just put small things in and around.







I got this scarecrow probably 15 years ago...I still like him...He's next to the little wagon I showed earlier.
This isn't everything I have done, but I'm still tweaking things a bit, but you get the idea. I am going to try and make some pillows for the bench on my front porch and a few table runners too. Busy, busy...
Have a great day!!

I love all of your decorations, Linda. I usually decorate for Fall, but have a lot going on right now with my hubby's health, so haven't felt like doing any decorating...I'm just going to enjoy all of the lovely things at my blog friends' homes! :o)

XOXO,

Cyndi

Fall is my favorite season. Love the way you are 'dressed up' for it. I found your blog when googling about The Wool Lady. Really hope to see that shop someday soon. I live far north of it on the central coast but hope to intice a friend from Arizona to meet me there for a visit. Thanks for the great pics of it on your previous post. Your quilty bags also look wonderful!
