Fall has it’s own beauty at my potting bench and kitchen herb garden. I love how the whole area takes on a more rustic, soft and peaceful feel! There are still flowers blooming and herbs for picking but things have certainly slowed down. Come with me for a little visit to the remains of fall at the potting bench.
Pots that once held blooming flowers are now stacked on the bottom shelf of my potting bench waiting for spring to arrive. I let them out to face the elements so they age and weather to wonderful worn patinas. To me, there is something quite beautiful about stacks of terracotta.
Some small pots are unpretentious foils for mini pumpkins!
The potting bench was once a busy place for washing vegetables from the garden. Now it’s wash basin is filled with a big coral and white pumpkin, corn husks and pheasant feathers from my son-in-laws recent hunting trip.
Above the potting bench hangs a galvanized cubby with a few fall elements.
I love the beauty of something so simple.
These white pumpkins are showing tinges of soft yellow, a sign they are coming to their natural end. I love how gracefully they age!
Pumpkins are a favorite on my potting bench and in my kitchen herb garden. Some even float in the concrete birdbath.
The s’more sticks are propped between the potting bench and a galvanized planter.There are still some herbs left in the kitchen herb garden like the hearty rosemary in the planter.
I’m still able to pick thyme, parsley, sage and chives. I hope they hang on until Thanksgiving! I’ll use them in my stuffing!

Very soon fall plantings will be replaced with live greens and Christmas cheer. But for now, I’m enjoying the remains of fall!
