Welcoming Fall at the Farmhouse

A Pumpkin or two...



in front of the house and to welcome you down the driveway....



and a fall wreath....



are letting passersby know that fall will be here in 2 days.

A note about the recent summer weather in North Carolina. Our summers are hot, but the past few years have been unusually hot. As of last Thursday we have had 84 days that the temperature exceeded 90 degrees and there are several more in the forecast this week. Prior to 2007, the highest number of 90 degree or higher days was 72. The record was broken in 2007 when we reached 83 days. 2010 will shatter the record of 2007. So, it isn't just my imagination when I was thinking it sure has been hotter than usual!

Here you are having Summer temps and you are decorated for Fall and I'm having the Fall temps and only have 1 area decorated! Guess I need to get up in the attic soon, maybe later today, might be just what I need to get out of this "funk" I'm in??

Did you make your wreath, Debbie? It's very pretty, and I love all the other touches you did at your home.
