Lettuce, Anyone?

One way I like to set a pretty table is by using something I have on hand anyway.  We bought a variety of lettuce and before it got planted I decided to make up a pretty table.  The mums bring the table to life.  Before we see the table I have a few fall photos to share with you.

There's just a few green leaves left on this tree but mostly a glorious yellow to admire.

I didn't realize until I loaded this photo that it looks so much like the background on my blog!  The red leaves on this little tree make me want to break off a branch or two and bring it home with me. 

These pumpkins are sitting outside a business in my small downtown.

It was a pretty day for taking sweet nature photos.

On the back porch the picnic table is set.  Blue Willow dinner plates with white bowls centered on top, set the look.  I broke off small piece of jute to add more interest to the setting.  I call it jute, does anyone know the real name?

Pretty different varieties of lettuce.  You could tie a couple of dish towel together and wrap it around the base of the lettuce if you so desired.

The lettuce was so full you could barely see the bottom of these.

A different look that was practically free.

I love eating outside when it is cool.  This is a very casual and comfortable setting.



  1. Very loverly, my friend. Your fall snapshots are just breathtaking. You're a very good photographer. Your lettuce is just gorgeous and to think you had so much you could use it on your table! Now I call that little purple plant 'wandering jew'. I don't know it's proper name but I used to grow it. You could break off a piece and poke it in the ground and it would take root.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    1. Thank you Sheila! I have to tell you a little secret about those fabulous fall trees I photographed, they are little bitty trees! Yes, I just walked right up to them and could easily get close to those baby branches. I thought the name was something like that but I didn't want know for sure. Have a great day!

  2. Purple Heart or Wandering Jew is the name of your plant :^)
    Your pictures are so doesn't matter....big or small!!
    Blessings to you,

    1. Thanks J! I had heard it called that but I didn't know for sure. : )
