These just might be the last of my photos with autumn orange.
The sunflower head is about 14 inches across. I cut it off on Saturday. The orange pumpkins are small and smaller. They make a pretty vignette on the vintage chair on the back deck. Soon I'll have an arrangement of winter pine etc. in this spot.
The sunset on Monday night. I like the silhouette of the trees against the orange sky.
Does the grass up the hill look kind of orange at sunrise?
See the frost? We had the garden tilled on Saturday morning by a neighbour. You can see the fire pit to the right which will be on the lawn next summer. This was all garden (formerly our neighbour's) but we're only going to make about 1/3 of it on the left side into a garden. We have some work cut out for us I think.
(It's bigger than it looks)
And. There's a teensy bit of orange in the runner under my mystery wire mesh basket that I showed you the other day. I thought I'd take it off the wall and put a few seed pods in it to give you an idea of what it looks like. My mother told me it was used to roast nuts in but I highly doubt that. I think it's just a unique decorative basket, don't you?
That's it for orange for a while. Next it will be silver, green, red....you know....Christmas and winter colours. :)
Thanks for visiting and your comments on my 'ghost scarecrow' yesterday. I agree with most of you that said it could be a scary thing to see on a dark windy night. Boo!
I'm preparing a post on the beautiful frost we had Wednesday morning so I'll be back soon.
