Front Yard Fall Display

Wow time is sure flying!  Here we are at the end of October already and I haven't shared my outdoor signs of Fall.  This old wheelbarrow was my husband's grandfathers. Don't you just love the old red paint and original stenciling on the side? We have had more people stop and want to buy that wheelbarrow from us, but we would never sell it. It belongs here. Unfortunately we have to keep it chained to a tree. We have already had someone steal the pumpkins from the display. I am hoping it was just kids.

The bittersweet looks so pretty against the red door!  I have had trouble with my bittersweet this year turning brown.  I don't know if it was because of all the rain we had or what.


  1. Beautiful wheelbarrow ~ a wonderful Family heirloom~ I say keep her chained~
    there is so much joy in decorating & seeing everyone's displays~ just terrible theft has to go on~

  2. Hi, Julie, how have you been? The wheelbarrow is a true gem, a real treasure. It looks lovely with the mums
    and the bittersweet does look very pretty next to the red door. I shall try it with our red doors, I never thought it would show up so well. I know about the bittersweet, in our case it just on Friday opened up, and not even all of it yet. It has to be the extraordinary amount of rain here in Western MA. It's a real New England treat to have bittersweet.
    Warmest Regards,
