Every year I forget how beautiful the colors are. Here in North Carolina the maple trees are every color of red imaginable. The dogwoods go from orange to red to burgundy. Some of the trees look like God took out his paintbrush and painted every leaf individually. I am sure my husband gets tired of me commenting on every other tree, making sure he doesn't miss any of the beauty!
I brought some dogwood branches and nandina berries inside to brighten the mantle in our TV room. They won't last long but I just had to bring some of that color inside!
Mini pumpkins look nice nestled in among the branches and tucked in beside a green teapot.
Nandina berries hang over the mantle ledge.
I thought I needed a change in my banner too to be more in keeping with the season, so I am venturing away from my favorite red and blues just for the month of November.
Hope you have a wonderful day. Make sure you VOTE!
