This morning I was looking out the patio doors, and I thought: I haven’t done anything fall out on my big outdoor space, which I consider an extension of my apartment.
So I got busy seeing what I could do to spruce it up for the season before winter.
I’ve just about talked myself into splurging on a few kale plants, and maybe some more pansies, to fill in where summer’s annuals have spluttered out.
See the leaves in the bird bath? They are starting to fall, folks!
Now if I could just get some birds to stay in place for a few seconds when I’m sitting outside so I could snap some pics, I would be a happy camper.
Fickle little wrens hop-hoppity-hop all over the place. They are funny little birds, because they perch most everywhere. The chairs, the plants and any other elevated spot.
Then they cock their little heads back and forth, as though they are listening for something.
It is the time of year when ornamental grasses do their thing. They grow tall all summer and then turn brown in the fall.
This is why I always like to have them in my gardens. They put on quite a show in the fall.
I cut some of the golden pennies/creeping jenny growing in the driftwood and pushed them into other plants. They’re usually easy to get started if it isn’t too hot.
The heat keeps the roots from taking hold in my experience.
Have you decorated your outdoor space for fall yet?
