These pictures were taken from the deck of my parents' house.
I love to decorate for the changing seasons. This year, I have included the entrance in my decorating. This is the front door of our house.
A mum to welcome visitors.
Before we go inside, there are a few plants still thriving outside that I want to show you. Soon the cool evening temperatures will force the end of these plants, but for now they are here to enjoy. I am not sure what this plant was called, but I just love it. I will be sure to plant this in my hanging baskets again next year.
This is my husband's Castor bean plant. He brought it home in a small 4" pot at the beginning of August. It is extremely fast growing. Since they aren't hardy in our climate, we will have to plant one again next spring.

Once inside, there are two quilts hanging in the entrance. This is "Moonlight over the Pumpkin Patch". This is a quilt that was just finished last weekend. Finishing this one allows me to cross another UFO off my list on my sidebar for this year. The quilt pattern was BQ. I started this quilt over a year ago. I first saw a quilt made from this pattern at the Lynden fair. Although it is a simple pattern, I was distracted and didn't finish until now.
Does the pumpkin fabric look familiar? I used what was left over from this project to make the latest 4 patch stacked posies quilt that I have been working on.
This is a quilt that I bring out to the living room each fall for snuggling under while watching TV.
