Summer 09 RS

Do you remember my creative sister’s yard from this past summer? 

Summer basket RS

These baskets spilled over with luscious flowers– ( my clever BIL “jimmy rigged” special watering tubing to help keep the flowers from getting too thirsty.)

(BIL = Brother in Law) 🙂

First day of Fall was technically yesterday…  I have always loved this season the most I think. It reminds me of when my family was young and we spent such fantastic times preparing for the new school year… (yesss love those new pencils and paper) Great baking and soup and sweater weather!

 Look at the transition from baskets of flowers to color popping pumpkins!

This is breath taking! Beeb, my very creative sister took plastic decorative pumpkins any one can find at Hobby Lobby and created these master pieces. I stand in awe when I watch her do her magic.

She even thinks to add a darling flag on the bottom to punctuate the Season.

After all the complements over her yard, Beeb even found time (seriously she is one of the most giving people I have ever known) to create a couple of these pumpkins for my mother’s porch.

Wow– what colors!!

Please stop by and say hi to Susan at A Southern Dreamer where everyone there is looking to celebrate the new season. Also, at Rose Colored Glasses with Rondi is having another party. It’s my first to participate- so go take a peek over there.

Another first for me is Do It Yourself —  DIY with Kimba — stop by and take a look at all the projects.

If you think these pumpkins and wreaths from the other day are fun… just wait till I show you what we have been working on for weeks!! You will LOVE ♥ love ♥ love ♥ what is coming towards the end of the week……. 🙂

TTFN~~Claudia ♥ ♥

    I do not know how you can top these lovely photos, but I will be checking to see what you have to offer.  Very nice  fall post.

    Claudia, I’m curious did your sister make some for you, you probably made your own fall decor?  Your mother raised some very very talented young ladies!   Sister creates the scene and you take beautiful photographs of it. . .quite a duo!

    Claudia, This is truly the most unique and gorgeous display of pumpkins and fall flowers that I have ever seen.  I just love how that fence lends itself so nicely to seasonal displays.  Does your sister live in Utah also?  What a gorgeous neighborhood.  When I was little we had a farm nearby and they would carve huge pumpkins put a coffee can inside to hold water and fill it with the most gorgeous fresh mums.  My mother would love your sister’s home.  Have a lovely Fall day.  I went to the beach yesterday, and surprise of surprises I saw the Autumn equinox at sunset.  I couldn’t capture the magnificence on my camera.  It was breathtaking, a photographer’s dream.

    Your sister’s house and yard are so enchanting — beautiful.  I wish I had such talent.  Love those pumpkin arrangements.  Hmmm… may try and do something like that myself.  If it doesn’t turn out, I just won’t take pictures!

    Wow! Those are lovely arrangements! Your sister is really talented. Her neighbors must love her!

    PS: All the time we were in Yellowstone NP we kept wondering how nice it would be to live near it. You were lucky! Montana was a wonderful state to visit ..I also hope to visit Glacial National Park someday.
