Transforming From Summer to Fall


This year many of the plants on my front porch were still going strong and I thought their deep purples and greens would be a nice change from the usual fall color scheme. So I kept my large pot filled with perilla magilla and cascading lamium.

I also removed the sweet potato vine and coleus from their bright turquoise pots and replaced them with older bronze ones from the shed.

Then I added a little green apple colored wreath made from dried hydrangea flowers. I like the way it looks and it didn’t take long or cost very much to transform my summer porch to fall.

    I had no idea sweet potato vine is such a lovely color!

    I made the mistake of pruning my hydrangea too severely last spring. Can't wait until it starts blooming and I can dry them again.
