When you are not rushing to get back into air-conditioning, the front porches in the neighborhood become individual vignettes to appreciate as you pass by.
The paint color on the trim is so complemented by the colors in the fern.
It's so lovely when the plants and flowers coordinate with the colors of the house.
Here is a case where the color of the house suits the season.
As the flowers taper off we are all the more impressed by the ones that are left. Isn't this a great combination with the blue and orange?
And even when the flowers fade the beautiful pots become the focal point.
Another glorious container that adds some spice to an Autumn setting.
A few hydranga bushes survived the hot summer and continue to dazzel us with their beauty and grace.
I found the reds, golds and oranges against this rich dark brown door especially stunning.
It wouldn't be October without seeing a few pumpkins.
This display covered all the bases....a jack-o-lantern with a witch's hat.
This lawn display covered a few bases as well. Halloween awakens the creativity like no other holiday.
And that ends my stroll through the neighborhood for today. But I could not resist giving you this shot of...
what may very well be the "Last Rose of Summer."
