The leaves have just barely started to turn here in the North Carolina mountains
The weather has been just perfect -- beautiful crisp, cool mornings and Carolina blue skies throughout the day.
I wanted to do something different this year on the porch. No Big Lots scare crows, pumpkins, corn stalks, or mums.
Everything is natural and gathered from the property.
Wildflowers, leaves and moss...nature's decor at its best.
Here in the mountains, there is nothing better than a comfy place to sit and listen to the rustling leaves.
Loosely gathered boxwood and flaming azalea branches add a festive and unexpected touch to the black french doors.
A handmade grapevine wreath is accented with wildflowers ready to dry.
Autumn in the mountains -- letting nature provide the decor.
