Garden Whimsies By Mary Blog

Whimsical art for home and garden

Welcome Autumn!!

Autumn is my most favorite season of the year.  It brings back so many wonderful childhood memories of our home in Southern Maryland.  We moved to Florida in 1975 and I love the Sunshine State.  It’s only at this time of year that I become homesick for what I used to enjoy as a child.  Fall was always a busy time of year with school starting, trick or treating at Halloween, raking the gorgeous leaves when they fell from the trees.  And of course you had to jump in the leaf piles because it was just too tempting.  A walk down to the creek amongst the changing leaves was a weekly ritual.

And then there was the trip to the pumpkin patch to select just the right pumpkin for carving.  Hay rides and bonfires complete with roasted marshmallows and smores.  I really appreciate the cooler weather now as well.  I miss wearing sweaters and sweatshirts this time of year.

I envy those of you who live in those parts of our beautiful country where you can enjoy this most amazing transformation of nature.  I hope you’ll get out and take advantage of all the wonders that Mother Nature provides this time of year.  It’s a glorious treat my friends, and not everyone is lucky enough to see it live and in person.

I’ve designed several Autumn-themed garden whimsies to help get me in the Fall mood.  They will look lovely on your Fall table setting.  Please feel free to visit my Etsy shop at to view them.
