i am almost convinced that fall is my favourite time of the year.
now it seems to be fading away. i will embrace winter.
i want to enjoy all seasons.
they each have their own beauty.
what is more wonderful than taking a walk with family
after thanksgiving dinner together?
not much in my mind, except photographing the memory.
leaves coloured brightly are almost gone, even the ones that have fallen.
they have been blown by the cool wind of the north.
most of the ripen berries have been foraged by the birds.
the ones left are jewel toned. simply beautiful.
on this brisk november day, the sun is shining and bidding us ado.
autumn is coming to the end and winter is swiftly entering our days.
will there be snow, i hope so.
i will embrace winter and it's charms.
it is being held at cheekwood botanical garden. my darling husband is taking them.
that is gwynevere in the black dress, my granddaughter.
abbey is in the red, my daughter.
they were very excited. they both loved being dressed up.
with santa letters in hand they are off.
sweet little ladies!

as we leave on this crisp autumn day all is well,
with pumpkins stacked neatly outside the front door.
the leaves have all fallen creating a path
of colour and wonder on life's painted floor.
orange mums need deadheading, alas that can wait.
our stomachs are growling, " TO THE LOVELESS CAFE' "
they're famous for biscuits and jellies homemade.
what a great way to start such a beautiful day.
benches for seats while your table is set
the windows are dressed, a nouveau savoir faire?
with careless abandon the aprons are hung
famous and common mix with nary a care .
pause for a picture as we head out the door
our bellies are full , of that we are glad.
the tractor is smiling as we take our leave
dh and mr. phil a grand visit have had.
a kind thank you to dh for helping me with the rhyming!

this is the view right outside my front door across the street.
dusk brings out the beautiful golden hues of the leaves.
nandina bushes heavily laden with berries are all around our property.
for some reason i have taken notice of them more this season with their reds, oranges and deep burgundies.
our 7 plus acres is partly pasture but their is a wall of dense
trees to the left that divides us from one neighbour.
as we take our leave to walk, the trees are our guides.
the leaves have been falling profusely creating showers of colour.
as they leave the trees, the berries all around show off their many varieties.
for me there is something so telling, so beautiful about spent...leaves, wildflowers, and fields.
since our frosts have tipped all the greenery in brown
queen anne's lace is still pretty even though bitten.
nature is the best inspiration for fashion.
