FALL FRONT PORCH

Autumn ... Maybe Tomorrow!
The forecast is for cooler weather. Starting tomorrow and for the next week the temperatures are supposed to be in the mid 70's. 
I have been doing a little digging in those boxes and came up with an old wreath. A little tweaking here and there, add a little this and that and you have a new/old free fall wreath.

Babs, I keep finding roosters I never knew I had. He's been hiding upstairs for a year or so. Funny, I never heard any crowing.
 I have been seeing a lot of crows and blackbirds around blog land lately. A large one had landed on the screened porch, out back. I grabbed him by the neck and brought him, squawking, to the front. If he expects to eat he will have to work for his food. He is now the official greeter! 
DID I EVER TELL YOU?
You hit a dog with one of my biscuits, you kill the dog!
WELL, I once threw some biscuits, out back, to feed the birds. Bob came in the room rolling with laughter. Upon going to the window, I see the crows dunking my biscuits in the birdbath (true story) . What an insult!!! This crow is gonna work for his biscuits, soggy or not.
 The only thing I purchased for the porch was three potted mums from Sam's Club. I placed one in the cute pot above. 
With those googlie eyes, I am not sure if Mr. Crow is watching over this mum, in the vintage cold bucket or  flirting with me.  Probably wants a biscuit. 
I am using some faux pumpkins. It's too hot to put out real ones here, just yet.

Bye, for now!
I will be back with more "Fall" soon. 
Tomorrow I will be working at the Botanical Garden's Fall plant sale. It is going to be a beautiful day.
Hope you enjoy your weekend!

I am partying with the neatest ladies. Now join up!

You crack me up! My first try at making buscuits was a disaster and they were hard as rocks, too. I threw one on the floor and it broke like a glass. Love your front porch decor. The rooster is a nice touch and love the crow made out of garden tools.

Babs said...

Ginger, You are soooo funny. Love your little rooster on the wreath. He's so cute, and well behaved too for you not to have heard him crow for so long. I got such a giggle about your biscuits. Mine are the same way. Hard as rocks! I use frozen ones.
Your porch is so cute. I really need to do a Fall post, but honestly, I've been out all day looking for Fall things and all I brought home was two soup bowls.
Have a good weekend.
Babs

Very, very pretty and inviting! Love the bandana you tied around your crow's neck. I can't make a good biscuit either, but boy my grandma (from Madison, GA) sure could! I so wish I had taken the time to learn from her. Oh, the things you take for granted...

Dearest Ginger,

Your front porch is set for Fall. I love how you tweaked an old wreath for a completely new look. I'm not a rooster fan, but he looks perfect perched on your wreath.

Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays.
