Let Me Take You on a Walk
Autumn is such a beautiful time to take walks in the middle of the day. The summer heat is just a distant memory, the light of the sun is warm and soft - a perfect time to go outside and walk the neighborhood. I love to see how the gardens are changing in the seasons and what people put in their front yards. Of course, I'm also always looking for inspiration.
There are stunning fall decorations everywhere, be it a gorgeous porch or just a single pumpkin in a birdbath.
Every time I find some new bird houses, either in someone's front yard or tucked away in a tree.
Front yards are always an inspiration for me. I like to see what other people put in their yards, what kind of plants (I'm not fond of lawns), whether there are places to relax and how do they decorate? Is there something I would like to have in my yard?
I certainly like this bird bath a lot.
This little guy looks so cheerful! I actually expected him to start swinging his legs!
I love to see gates leading to the back gardens. Some of them have the air of a fairy tale about them and you wonder what is behind the gate.
Rain or shine, autumn is always full of surprises and colors.
My garden is still beautiful. The gaillardia doesn't look like it will stop blooming anytime soon. The Chinese Pistache has been spectacular this fall. The first two years its leaves turned to a lovely yellow and orange, but this years the color palette included a rich and warm red that was simply stunning.
I hope all of you in the Northern Hemisphere are experiencing a beautiful and memorable autumn.
