What Fall Looks Like In Central Florida

Trying to get into the Fall spirit can certainly be a challenge for most Floridians. Since Mother Nature doesn’t bless us with cooler temps until December – and sometimes even later – we must create our own Fall. How do we do it? By going all out decorating our gardens and homes. We can’t put on sweaters and go leaf watching, but we can go to a pumpkin patch and stock up on gourds galore.
This is a little corner in my front yard garden that changes seasonally. My vintage bicycle stays year round and provides a wonderful backdrop for my container garden. Just change out the usual annuals with some silk Fall colored flowers, craft pumpkins and some straw and voila ~ it’s now Fall!
Also in the front garden is my yellow garden bench, a gift from my children last Christmas. Add some potted mums and another scarecrow and we’re all set to welcome visitors.
Even my prize vintage trike (found on Etsy) gets in the Fall swing with a pot of beautiful mums.
It’s still too warm for hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows, but this is Fall in Florida. So, until I’m able to make a trip back north to view the change of season in person, I’ll be a regular visitor to Pinterest to get my daily dose of the gorgeous Fall foliage so many of you have graciously pinned.
Designing fall themed garden whimsies also helps me “get my Fall on”. Here are a couple of my new garden totem ~ centerpieces perfect for your Fall entertaining. You can find these and my other garden whimsies in my online Etsy shop.
Thank you so much for taking time to visit with me friends. I invite you to visit me also on Facebook where I share tips and pics on things garden related. I’m an amateur gardener and self taught “artist” of garden art who loves to share and inspire other garden lovers. You’re welcome to follow along on my journey.“The season for enjoying the fullness of life — partaking of the harvest, sharing the harvest with others, and reinvesting and saving portions of the harvest for yet another season of growth.” – Denis Waitley
