Urning for Fall

Since the warm weather has lingered on, we have been reluctant to make any changes to our landscaping outside as of yet.
I am however, looking for an inspiration for my urn
in the front of the house as you walk up to our front door.
Normally we plant a mum in there and call it a day,
but this year I wanted to try to reach a little higher
in my design.
I found the following pictures
online at Better Home & Gardens:

 The traditional pumpkin topiary
 The pumpkin & gourd filled urn
 The pot~pourri of fall, which looks to complicated
for my skill set!
 This pumpkin topiary had the house numbers,
which was a cute idea!
And finally the mix of fall annuals.
I'm not sure what I'll decide,
but will keep you posted!
Hope this has provided a little urn inspiration for you :)

  4. I second the vote on the pumpkin topiary with house numbers, but the OCDness in me wants them to be numbered 1-2-3. :)
