Decorative gourd season is a sure sign of Fall. I am celebrating this time of year by providing podcasts about pumpkins and succulents. Including a pumpkin pictorial, a random mix of podcasts and YouTube videos to help inspire your ideas for Fall decorating.
Pumpkin and succulent plants, not to be confused with cactus; nearly all cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. Using a combination of colorful pumpkins and succulents are popular arrangements that start to show up throughout social media in early Fall. My pumpkin story began when I found a beautiful sage-green pumpkin at my local grocery store, Farmers Market Place – Sentry. Adding a doily for a vintage touch and fresh succulent plants my arrangement lasted through Thanksgiving and into December.
Having a productive garden, creating an outdoor reading nook and upgrading our backyard living space are 3 of my top 5 goals for 2018. Visions of colorful pumpkins dance in my head when I think of my dream garden.
