I am not unique in my obsession for all things fall: pumpkin, pretty leaves, cool air, mums, scarves, sweaters, Thanksgiving...

So I'm a stereotype. Whoopee.

With the first brisk morning, I was ready to prep our porch for fall.

First I trimmed the nandena at the bottom-center of the above pictures so that any flowers or pumpkins could be seen from the street.

I found the wreath...

...for about $17 at Greenbriar. I like that it's fall-ish without being Halloween- or Thanksgiving-specific.  The orange also ties in nicely with the University of Tennessee flag...

I searched high and low for a UT flag that wasn't too terribly tacky.  (I realize that some might think any university team flag is tacky, but hey, it's fall in the south: football is a way of life.)

I spent about $45 at Ace Hardware on mums (2 large, 4 small), which are annuals and provide color for a relatively short amount of time in the fall.

Grant also cleared out the summer plants from the planter box above the door to make room for pansies we'll plant late this fall.

Et voila...

I'm going to add some pumpkins to the stairs this weekend.

Happy fall!
