Pumpkin Patch Delights

Hi there. We are back from Texas and I'm happy to be home.

Before our trip, we went out to a pumpkin patch and had a perfect Fall day.

Thought I would share these pics with you before Halloween is over! Time is seriously going too fast...

I have to admit this was my first visit to a pumpkin patch and well, I was kind of enchanted. Highly recommend it.

Have a beautiful Thursday.

Gorgeous Nature Photography by Georgianna Lane

Hi friends...hope your Monday is going well. It's bright and sunny here, after a weekend of rain. The trees look so lovely with the morning sunshine on their leaves. So as you can probably tell...I am still completely enamored with Fall and when I came across these dreamy visions by Seattle photographer, Georgianna Lane, I knew I had to share them with you...

Aren't they gorgeous? She does a whole series entitled "The Poetry of Trees". I think I may have to collect them all...

Please go wander through her Etsy store. It's a true delight. She also authors a lovely blog...here.

Hope these images brought some beauty to your day.

p.s. If you missed our trip to Greece on Friday...check it out here.

Golden leaves at my feet

I took these pictures the other day outside my friend's home. Autumn, to me, is a magical season. A time to watch the mastery of nature's brush, while preparing for the colder days to come. To plan, dream, consider, ponder and reflect. After the spontaneous energy of Summer, Fall feels quiet, thoughtful and comforting. The golden leaves, both at my feet and overhead, dazzled my eyes; the sapphire sky, the perfect contrast.

What do you love about this season?

I hope your path is paved with golden leaves.

As Fall approaches...

Rain is blowing in as I type this - Portland is due to be gray for the next two days. A prelude of what is to come. A new season is approaching and I'm actually excited to greet it. Tomorrow, I start my blogging class and I'm so thrilled. Grace goes off to school. Chris to work. Me and my computer are going to cozy up and get some work done. I hope.

As I daydream of what might lie ahead...I found myself thoroughly enjoying these beautiful images by Cedric Bihr.

Simple, serene and set with the hues of autumn, I had to share...

I'll let you know what my homework assignment is tomorrow. If only I had been this excited about homework when I was a kid!
