5 Reasons Why Fall is the Best

We all love fall! Here's five reasons why we think this season is so special.

  1. Pansies and Violas. These quintessential fall and winter flowers brings the blooms from fall through early spring. Available in a multitude of shapes and sizes, pansies and violas are the perfect fall flower. Pansies offer a medium to large size bloom and will keep performing adding a burst of color when you need it. These tough little beauties pack a punch. Violas are the petite cousins of the pansy and are tougher in the face of cold and heat. No garden should be without them. The smaller flower will bloom all through the fall and winter. Because they are low growing plants, they are an excellent choice as flower bed borders. They are also perfect in seasonal pots and window boxes.
  2. Pumpkins and Gourds. From mini to large, to Cinderella pumpkins and apple gourds these fall favorites just scream fall. Whether you use them indoors or outdoors, pumpkins and gourds are a sure bet for fall decorating. Not just in the color orange, pumpkins and gourds can be anything from white, to green to even speckled.
  3. Jewel-tone Colors. These colors create the warm and cozy atmosphere in fall. From the bright red leaves to the bright purple mums, these saturated hues create the ambience of the season. Dynamic and bold, there is a place in every home for these colors. Choose from the deep purple amethyst mums to ruby red pansies, and you can experiment with pops of intense fall color.
  4. Halloween Décor. Spooky skeletons, whimsical pumpkins, lanterns and more set the stage for your trick-or-treaters. Decorating with the orange and the black, inside and out will add a festive fall flair to your home décor. It is simple just add a few Halloween touches and you can bring the spirit of fall alive.
  5. The Great Outdoors. Warm days and chilly nights, make being outdoors during the fall a must. Warm up by a fire pit or chimaneas or simply string festival lights to create cozy ambience. Whether you’re entertaining friends or just family, wearing a sweater and roasting marshmallows sets the stage for a perfect crisp autumn evening. Fire up the grill and enjoy an afternoon of football and fun.
