Fall Flower Containers

TRANSITION OUR OUTDOOR PATIO FLOWER CONTAINERS FROM SUMMER TO FALL USING MUMS, ORNAMENTAL GRASS, AND CABBAGE!

I took the plunge this week and started removing the summer flowers from the pots and replacing them will fall blooms. We had a very cool week in the low 70’s and getting down in the low 50’s at night so it just felt right to get started.

My favorite outdoor spot to decorate is our stamped concrete porch on the walkout side of the basement. It’s also where the fire pit is located and where no one other than my family sees. It’s on the backside of the cabin but it’s one of our prettiest spots over looking the pond and farmland for days.

In my neck of the woods you have to snatch up the mums, ornamental grass, and ornamental cabbage as soon as it’s in the stores. If I even hesitate a few weeks everything will be gone.

It makes it a little hard shopping for mums when they’re still not in bloom. I like to see all the pretty colors next to each other before I pick a color combination for the season.

Despite them being tight closed buds I decided to go with burnt orange and white mums with a splash of purple/red grass and ornamental cabbage. I felt those colors worked best with our outdoor surroundings.

Even the Maple trees are starting to turn colors already. It’s hard to believe fall is so near. I hope the pumpkins in the garden hold out long enough for me to decorate with. Most of them have already turned orange.

As long as the temperatures stay cool I think they’ll last. I planted them just to decorate with and sure hate the thought of them rotting before it even happens. I was trying to avoid the expense of purchasing pumpkins this year, so fingers crossed they hold out!
