A variety of Autumn offerings from the forest - dried seed pods, black hawthorn, wild tansy, grasses, and rose hips.
For the dining room table a small bouquet in a pint Mason jar holds wild yellow tansy and dark-fruited black haw.
Mild Autumn afternoons have given way to nights in the mid-30's. Later this week a freeze is expected that will eliminate most of my balcony's greenery. Barefoot afternoons will shortly be over as Winter comes ever nearer.
Of course, not all my Fall decor is foraged. A faux garland brightens an old planter on my front porch.
A two-season wreath - Fall and Christmas - is another faux favorite of mine that serves year after year.
A couple of sugar pumpkins that will be turned into pumpkin pie later in the Season are a must for the porch, as well.
In this Season of harvest and rest, may plenty and grace from my place be unto your place as the leaves change colors and drift down in jeweled cascades of yellow, orange, red, and burgundy!
A Blessed Autumn to all!
