I love mums on porches for fall!
The more the better, but unfortunately I can't justify spending $100 for flowers. I try, but I just can't bring myself to do it. But this year, I was at my local NPS Store looking for fabric. As I left the store, unsuccessful in my search. I noticed they now had a small nursery out front. So I wandered over. They had these beautiful mums everywhere. When I inquired about the price I was not only told a decent price but that they were all 50% Off!!
I quickly grabed two huge 4.67 gal pots and two 3 quart pots, paid for them, and hurried home!!
The next morning I was ready to Fallize my porch!
(I know that's a made up word!)
First up, I got rid of the old plants from the summer; they were not looking so hot! Then I gave my porch a good cleaning. I even cleaned out my light, which had dead bugs filling almost half of it! Afterwards, the light was so clean my daughter asked why I didn't put the glass back in!!
That's clean baby!!!
I then plopped a red and yellow pot of mums on each side of the door and added a fall wreath and I'm ready for FALL!!!
Oh, I forgot to mention I paid only $33 for all 4 of my gigantic mums!!
I'm so enamored by my mums, I go out the front door just to look at them and then come back in!!
I know I'm weird!
What do you do to your porch for fall?
Thanks for stopping by!
