There’s always this magical moment when the leaves are falling like rain while still wearing most of them.
The grapevine starts to change colour from the truck first, with the leaves morphing from their crisp green to vivid tones of orange, lime and yellow.
That’s prime time to dash out to the garden shed out back and capture it in its natural fall beauty habitat.
Rain or no rain!
Yes it was raining.
Which could be a good thing. I can endlessly tweak things to nearly death, but I didn’t want to damage my camera, so this shoot went fast!
HERE was the garden shed in summer during August…
… and two short months later, October brings a completely different show.
Isn’t nature just amazing?!
I don’t have much in my backyard these days, aside from the cool pallet wood fence HERE.
So I’m really grateful this little shed keeps on keepin’ on! It’s a great little focal point that always seems to work.
As luck would have it, I had just run out to a local farmers’ market type produce store and picked up these cute white pumpkins for all of $1 each.
They were till scattered by the front door because I still didn’t have a place in mind for them.
They ended up being the perfect fall companion to the shed wearing its leaves.
I will be the first to admit, my fall interior decorating HERE doesn’t get very far. It’s that transitional season when I’m already working behind the scenes on Christmas.
It happens EVERY year. I need a clone.
Or learn to decorate a full season ahead…
I did share a couple of pillow and placemat ideas for fall HERE… so glad I got that in!
Who knows. My fireplace mantel is still bare so I may think of something quick one day where things just work.
I’m just grateful nature does what it does best, at the perfect time.
The fall show is indeed spectacular! My entire lawn is absolutely covered in leaves. It’s glorious!
Nature’s confetti I say.
Thank goodness the urge to rake the leaves hasn’t taken effect yet.
Guess I have a good excuse if I call it fall decor, right?!
What kind of fall show do you have in your own yard?
