Our Veranda in Fall

Last week I decided to give our veranda a new fall look.

I dug out some fabrics and pillows.

Changed the bed cover and pillows

It is so lovely to sit out here with a book and a cup of tea.

We still eat out here most days.

Love my limelight hygrangeas

Love the golden fall light

Well , that is our veranda decked out for fall.

Have a great day!

Carolyn

p.s. I posted the recipe for sticky date pudding below for those interested.

Having been in so many landscapes I know, as nice as your veranda is in pics, it's better in person.

'Morning Carolyn,
Lovely and so cozy. Your hydrangeas are gorgeous! Can't wait for mine to dry out! Thank you again. I am going to try your Sticky Date Pudding recipe. I'm craving it now! How hot do you set your oven? And is that 1 tsp of baking soda? Thanks for sharing the recipe! Have a wonderful day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Carolyn,

Your veranda looks like a place from a 'fairytale'. I like the hydrangea 'Limelight'. I just bought it for my own garden. Have a good weekend. groeten van Madelief

You veranda is absolutely stunning. I can just imagine how relaxing it is to spend the afternoon there with a good book and a tall glass of tea. I don't know that I would ever go back inside :)
