Fall is in the Air

I made this wreath last fall from dried materials that I had harvested from nearby fields and flowers from our back yard.    The sunflowers came from one of the many fields of pumpkins that one of our friends has....they sell the pumpkins to Walmart.   What do sunflowers have to do with pumpkins you ask....well,  Dan plants them between the rows.

Aren't the pumpkin fields gorgeous!

Speaking of pumpkins......the stores are full of faux pumpkins 

I took this photo of a field of corn earlier this summer.     The second photo shows how the stalks have dried and the ears of corn are ready to be harvested for seed to plant next year.     

When the fields are full of hay know fall is almost here.

  5. Penny,
    Stunning wreath!! I am trying to hold off decorating for Fall until after Labor Day.....I may start in the Kitchen though in a week or so because Labor Day is late this year. I love the photos os that shop you featured! Stunning! Would love to see more of that! I am now cleaning, purging and re-organizing our upstairs bathroom and I should finish today as I am working this weekend!!

  7. Your wreath is just gorgeous! Seeing all those faux pumpkins makes me ready for fall! I love all of your photos in the country with the hay bales and the sunflowers. I am very ready to not live in the city anymore but we have a way to go before retirement. In the meantime I will live vicariously through other people's pictures!
