This is my absolute favorite time of year and to celebrate its coming, I decided to make my deck a more comfortable place to sit out and enjoy the crisper days and chilly nights.
It was time.
The deck is probably the most "abused" functioning part of the house. Blistering hot summers, rainy puddles, chicken unmentionables, dogs, kids rollerblading, spilled ice cream and sand. Lots and lots of sand from boots trekking back and forth.
The flooring had long since been worn bare of its former green stain and the railings weren't far behind.
nothing to write home about, that's for sure.
found a great candle holder
went all the way back to town because I forgot a candle...
a little herb garden, with some mint and oregano. One of these pots is mint chocolate and that is exactly what you smell when you crush its leaves. yummy
Had to try out that candle since I had made a special trip back to town just to get it. Incredible spicy fall smell that candle manages to have - perfect.
Not even the finest candle was any match for the almost (tomorrow) full moon above.
Pretty stiff competition...
How do you welcome fall where you live?
