Hey guys! I finally got my front porch decorated for fall!
I’m always late on decorating our front porch for fall because the almonds on and around our farm are harvested in mid to late September. The process of harvesting almonds creates an enormous amount of dust which covers everything outside. Add all the ash from the recent fires in our area and everything was covered with an inch of dust and ash by the time everything was said and done. (I’m exaggerating there, but not by much.)
We had hydrengeas growing in our front flower beds, but a parasite got most of them and we had to pull most of them out and prune back what was left. I love hygrendeas and I plan on replanting them next spring!
One thing nice about living in Central California is there is no shortage of pumpkins during fall! I like to grow my own pumpkins but I didn’t get a chance to plant any this year.
The structure in the background is our almost completed gazebo. It is almost 7 years in the making 🙂 Dan worked on it as he had time over the years, but other things came up that took priority, such as life is. I hope it will be done soon so I can start working on putting in the rest of our yard! It’s only been 11 years since we moved into this house so I think it’s time 🙂
If you like the corn wreath, I’ll have a tutorial post up for it in a couple of weeks!
This is still our front porch, but it faces our driveway which is on the west side of our house. The front door faces the road. I like to decorate this too since anyone who drives up would go this way to get to our front door.
From this angle you can see the mums and corn leading up the front steps in the background.
I love my stubby milk can! I found it at an antique shop when I was visiting one of my besties in Oregon.
I hope you enjoyed my farmhouse fall front porch and I hope it was worth the wait! 😉
