Normally my front steps look like this.
But not this year.
This year I was in Europe,
so everything looked slightly different.
I tried some different things....
As you can see, it lacks a punch of color and TLC.
Finally, this past weekend...
I decided that it was still worth it...
to recreate my front steps.
I'll decorate it with fall foliage.
I pulled out the old and found a new home for it.
I drove to the local garden shop and found just what I wanted.
A little bit of this and a little bit of that.
Jade Frost Archangel
Something new and fresh.
I have never tried Heuchera before.
Heuchera is commonly known as alum root or coral bells.
It's a prime example of an old perennial that's busting out
some hot new looks for this years season.
It's one tough, hardy, wintry plant with versatility.
It's also known for it ability to hybridize,
thus giving it a greater array of foliage colors and shapes.
I think this is just perfect for me....
It was so quick and easy to change.
It was inexpensive.
And in less than a few hours,
I had something beautiful again.
I wonder what hot looks I could add to my fall makeover?
Does anyone out there have some ideas?
Something quick, easy, fresh and cheap?
