The rains have arrived but before that I did a little outside decorating..........

 I started with the front door........
then I moved outside........

I can't stop taking pictures of my gorgeous mums...........
Then I had this "hair-brained" idea to do this..............
I don't really like it though.  Those are battery operated lights with the battery case underneath the galvanized can........I fiddled with that darn piece of driftwood for 2 hours!  I had to pile rocks on it to get it situated properly.  But by the time I decided I didn't like it.............

storm clouds were gathering so I left it.......
I did manage to get the mail box covered with this magnetic bit of Fall that I used to use on the farm mail box.......
there are a few color changes taking place with more on the way I'm sure....
It stormed last night and luckily the girls were able to get outside this morning before it started raining again.  We have flash flood warnings and it's supposed to rain on and off for the next 3 days with possible severe weather on Monday.  I came in and made some molasses cookies
and plugged in my fiber optic scarecrow! LOL!
After the storm later when I was in bed reading....the moon came out from behind the clouds so I ran out in my pj's and took some pictures but only one turned out decent
and didn't nearly reflect the beauty I was seeing with my own eyes............
I hope you have a great Friday and weekend too!  Happy Trails!

  2. Your mums are so full of blossoms. I have one pot in the house to enjoy. Love the Halloween wreath and all of your pretties! Enjoy the weekend! Hugs!

  3. The cookies look yummy. I've been baking here too.

  4. Beautiful blooms in your garden.

  5. You have some great looking decorations, that outside area needs more "stuff" and it will be fine...I bet it is nice looking at night...hope no one steals it:)

  6. Love all your autumn decorations, the little berry basket on the door looks so sweet! The moon does look magical in your photo!
