Fall in the Courtyard - 2

Hard to believe this year is winding down, and the holidays are almost here. Emails and phone calls back and forth, making plans on where all will get together for different family gatherings, with lots of good food, great company, and good times.

The courtyard is winding down also for the year.  The few red and pink blooms in the background are still hanging on, as low as the temps have been over night lately, and will more than likely be gone completely by the end of the week.  Dug around in a storage box and found some faux mums, so put them in a Fall container to keep the faux pumpkin company.  To late in season to buy anymore real ones - hence the reason for adding some faux to the mix.
Same here - a pot of faux mums sitting next to a pot of real, yellow ones.  See the couple of bronze blooms on the real plant?  That is the color the whole pot of mums is suppose to be - according to the label.  Oh well - I do like the yellow ones better.  
The only problem with these, they never seemed to completely open up. Hummm??
 Yes - Leaves - Lots of leaves in my future!  A tiny fraction of what is yet to come.......
  Fall is definitely here....
 and Winter is just around the corner.

Faux works for me! You don't have to keep spending money every year. Our leave are just about done, just the pear tree left. We're supposed to get snow flurries in the am! Can you believe it?!

Beautiful courtyard! We have been mowing up leaves here for a month or so. Gorgeous weather today, but Sat. and Sunday it felt like Winter and we had snow. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
