The Frost Is On the Pumpkins

Over the years I have learned to decorate for fall no later than the week after Labor Day because the weather can take a downward turn in temperatures and it makes working outside difficult. I placed an order with a local farm for 16 bundles of cornstalks and 9 large pumpkins. They were delivered on a day that promised to have rain and wind. After taking delivery, I had my eyes to the western sky as the promised storms were looming. My staff and I had a blast carrying the stalks against the wind and tying them to the legs of the sign, across the porch on the front of the motel, in the drive-thru and by the pool deck. There were times with the wind gusts that I felt we were going to be airborne! We had a blast making fun of our monster walks as we carried the stalks around. We placed pumpkins in front of the stalks just as the rain moved in. It looks very festive.
