Autumn is in the Air

Autumn is my favorite season!

While our temperatures are cool and the smell of Autumn is faintly in the air, around here only a few trees are changing their colors.  I am so hoping for a long season of Colorful trees!  After all Autumn is a season isn't it?  Why is it we usually only have 3 or 4 weeks of beautiful tree colors and not a full season of them?

" I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as Autumnal sunshine by staying in the house"

I worked some this morning trimming overgrown ivy in our yard.  It was a beautiful morning!  Belle insisted I play soccer with her rather than work.  We played a bit of soccer and fetch before she started stealing the branches I had collected for our wood pile.  It was time for me to go back my trimming, and Belle was content to lay outside and soak up the warm sunshine.  

Inside I've decorated for Halloween & Autumn

Off now to an estate sale on it's final day... hoping to find 1/2 price treasures!

What are you doing today?

  1. It is looking like fall there at your house! I love that white glittery/pearly pumpkin with the locket hanging from it.
