The love of photography, decorating, vintage treasures and gardening.

The weather is changing noticibly and we are having rain and fog here today. There will be some beautiful warm, sunny days ahead well into October and I will look forward to them. I have noticed a lot of the summer birds are gone although I did see several bluebirds yesterday morning while walking. I haven't seen any for years but I know there are nesting boxes in the area. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me. There are still a few hummingbirds around the flowers and feeders.
So, with the change in weather I start wanting to feel cozy in my home. I start burning candles more often ~ ones scented with spice, cinnamon, pumpkin and vanilla. I drink more tea and would like to start baking cookies which will be a 'no no' in our house now as we try to eliminate sugar from our diets. Sad but true! (Doctor's orders.) I don't spend as much time in the garden or yard as I did all summer, though there will be lots of yard work to do yet in cleaning up the annuals, raking and bagging leaves (we have 6 large maple trees), and putting the perennials to bed ~ all later on in October.
I picked up the latest issue of Victoria magazine ~ the British issue ~ featuring the Lake District. I am looking forward to a good cup of tea, a spicy scented candle burning and Victoria to peruse at my leisure (no cookies!).
Here are some pictures taken last fall of my favorite signs of the season. Enjoy!
