I vote for no but I still have strawlady wreath but no decoration this year... Happy gardening...

Jacksonville, FL(Zone 9a)

It's kind of a toss up for me…Nothing specifically "Autumn", but some plants and trees take on their own color. So I guess it kind of decorates itself.

(Zone 7a)

I decorate for Halloween.

Cedarhome, WA(Zone 8b)

I love how the plants all blend together in the fall - no more garish combinations (fun as they are), everything kind of softens up for the fall season. I voted for potted mums, which I do pop in here and there for some more vibrant color and as a foil for all the golden brown tones of my perennial foliage. I can never decide if I prefer fall over spring, but it's certainly a close call.

Concord, CA(Zone 9b)

Heck I go so crazy about autumn decorating that I grow corn, just for the stalks, without any expectation of an edible crop. *L*

SE Houston (Hobby), TX(Zone 9a)

I got married in November, and my wedding decorations were fall harvest colors! Everytime I walk into the stores, I feel like I'm walking down the aisle again!

Mums, huh? Hmmmmmmmm....

Kure Beach, NC(Zone 9a)

Well, let's see. I change the bow on the concrete heron named Horace Porter Bonderant III and put out my Fall themed flag.
Last year my husband said he wanted mums, saying "they add so much color!" I hate mums. I bought 5 and they are doing wonderfully. Sigh..... They should be starting to rebloom in a few weeks.

Ozone, AR(Zone 6a)

LOL Barb, My best to Horace.
I love decorating. So out comes the pumpkins and scarecrows and faux autumn leaves.Later I add jack-o-lanterns and ghosts.Asters and Goldenrod are everywhere.
Course I live in a temperate forest so the whole world become a picture of reds, oranges,salmons and purples.

Kure Beach, NC(Zone 9a)

I went up to the attic this morning and found another Fall decoration, a grape vine wreath covered in fake fall leaves. That will go on the front door.

central, NJ(Zone 6b)

Love the changing of each season and changing the decor...this was my whiskey barrel out front last year

I don't decorate outdoors for fall but will put up some things indoors as it gets closer to Thanksgiving

(Mary) Anchorage, AK(Zone 4b)

I try really hard to have flowers that bloom into freeze-up. My lilies, dahlias and such are going great guns. I usually spend this time moving around, grooming and re-designing my gardens for maximum effect next summer. This is usually caused by plants that mature differently that I envisioned, new plants that show their possibilities, but in different locations than I first estimated. Wish our summers were longer and I didn't have to wait 9 months to see the results. (Sept-May)

Madison, IL(Zone 6b)

I decorate indoors. I voted "no". I have in the past put out a bail of straw, pumpkins, & corn stalks with mums, but that was when my kids were growing up. Maybe I'll start again this year.

Northern, NJ(Zone 6b)

With all of the beautiful Fall native plant combinations in the Northeast there is no need to add annuals or other commercial decorations.
Native grasses, especially Little bluestem, goldenrods, heuchera villosa and pods and seed heads from other natives are not only beautiful on their own but encourage an ever changing display of birds and butterflies to appear.
It is ever so satisfying to find the dried flower heads of the self sow anise hyssop lining the driveway visited by hoards of goldfinches.

Alton, MO

No...Fall plant add enough color for decoration by nature.

Ozone, AR(Zone 6a)

Good for you, Sempervirens.

Calgary, Canada

I decorate for Halloween.
Pumpkin lights etc.

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

I had to laugh at the living south of the equator response...I'm almost there. However my garden does produce a lot of yellows, orange and reds on its own, heck in October it is almost like spring again with color from flowers. I'll stick those cheap little scarecrows around, and I hang pumpkin lights around our cabana, but that is about it.
