October is the month that first inspired my monthly porch decorations and it remains one of my favorite months to enjoy the porch. For starters, the prospect of cool weather is usually very welcome come October. Mums, jack-o-lanterns, gourds, and ghosts are some of the best treats of the month.
My flag welcomes visitors.
So far, it’s been a warm October and so there are summer plants still comfortable outside. They’re tucked into a corner soaking up the warmth and sunlight.
By the end of the month, I’ll have trick-or-treaters to go with some cooler evenings. That’s happy!
