Topsy Turvy Fall Buckets on Our Deck

Ever since we created these topsy turvy buckets, I'd had fun changing them for the different seasons. Now both of them are on our back deck, welcoming any "back door" visitors this fall.
Pansies, ornamental kale, snapdragons, and creeping jenny make a colorful statement.
A pumpkin from our garden sits beside one of the planters.
The top bucket of this planter contains succulents which will live through our winter.
Another large white pumpkin from our garden sits beside this terracotta potholder stand with a welcome sign.
The creeping jenny in this one has been growing all summer and cascades down this column.
The pansies, kale, and snapdragons will fill in and will continue to look good during our winter, hiding the creeping jenny that will be damaged by the first hard frost.
