You already know about my gardening skills, but we also have dog issues to contend with at our house. I’ve given up on putting any effort and money into the yard that will be pulled up and devoured the moment I try to make a milk run to the Dollar General. When we move past chewy-puppy stage in our family, I’ll be a little more willing to get back into the curb-appeal swing of things.
That being said, I still wish my yard looked like the after pics of a Yard Crashers episode. And there’s nothing like October weather to put you in the mood for a pumpkin on the porch. Which explains my recent trip to the Lowes gardening center with no intention of making a purchase, whatsoever.
Want to give this look a try on your own front porch this fall? Below, a general recipe for a Blushing Fall Garden:
What are your fall decorations looking like this year? Any of you trying a mix of pastels in your decor? Share them with us! I’m sure they’re wonderful. Maybe even worthy of the after shots of Yard Crashers.
Me? I’ll be seeing you on the next episode of Hoarders: Dog Owners Edition.
You are So Cute, Smart and Organized,
