But in no time, every leaf would be gone. So it was time to RUN outdoors to take one last shed shoot of the season… fall style.
But what enticed me out there the most was a recent, abundant mother lode of pretty pumpkins and fall chrysanthemums from a local farm. Take that tour HERE.
The shed was my first target. I dashed out there with a mum in hand, but the grounds were so messy, I decided I’d do the front door first. Faster!
I was so trusting, that the wind would cooperate for a few more hours…
Oh I had fun! When I picked out all those mums and pumpkins, I had the front of the house colours in mind.
The blue front door is such a great contrast of temperature and tones against those gorgeous, warm reds!
Grabbing every galvanized bucket I had, with a few rusty junk relics and such for good measure, the flowers and pumpkins were layered for varying height.
Very simple, very nature.
The giant spring was found at a shopping trip at Rusty’s.
And then it was time to revisit the shed.
And just as I started to go find the rake, I stopped.
It was very tempting to clean up the yard just so for the shoot, but then I told myself… you may lose the leaves. Plus.. nature has staged it perfectly! Shoot it as is.”
So I plunked a salmon mum on the potting bench, and went for it. Au natural. I did not touch a thing.
I love how the grapevine wraps around the entire front and top of the garden shed.
Just goes to show, nature truly does it best. Bed head and all.
Have all your leaves dropped yet?
