AUTUMN IS IN THE AIR

Cool mornings and balmy days. Autumn is in the air. There is something so serene in these perfect days with their blue skies and changing light. I find it all very energizing.

I know that winter will be just around the corner, so I am torn between wanting to spend every moment outside or making my home cozy for the colder days ahead. 

Fall decor is everywhere. I wish I had a front porch to decorate like this one. It makes me want to gather apples and bake pies.

I love this fall dried wreath on the rusty old iron gate, tempting passersby to wander into the garden beyond.

It is definitely the season for pumpkins and chrysanthemums. This is one time of the year I am a fan of orange.

This arrangement of fall flowers is gorgeous. It's making me want to head over to Trader Joe's and see what they have.

I hope your fall weather is as perfect as mine is today and that you are able to get out and enjoy it.

  1. Fall is my favorite time of year. I just brought my large Fall wreath up from storage this morning. We have a wonderful nursery not too far away who supply all the beautiful giant mums for Costco in BC and Alberta and they have a lovely shop to buy direct as well. I am looking forward to a trip there soon.
    That bouquet is gorgeous. We don't have Trader Joes here in BC. I can tell we are missing out on a lot of great stuff.

  3. Beautiful and definitely fallish. I'm loving this weather as well. I even now have a front porch, but so far no decorating. Then again, we're so far from the road no one would see it. Hope you have a great week, Laura.

    1. Sitting out on a front porch and enjoying a cup of hot tea would be a perfect fall way to pass the time for me. I could skip the decorations then. Hope you have a great week too, my friend.

  6. A beautiful post, Laura. I'm like you about the color orange. Not a big fan of it, but I do like it during the fall season!

    1. I'm definitely a summer girl too, Kris and if we could go straight from fall to spring I would be a happy camper.

  10. Oh yes, Laura, it's been gorgeous in Western Massachusetts these past few days. And guess what? After going to the farmers' market and buying a bunch of veggies and apples, I DID make an apple pie yesterday. Ha! Great minds think alike! Have a wonderful Thursday. Susan

  15. Those are beautiful images of Fall! Unfortunately, here in GA, it is hot once again. It was in the low 90's today! i'm looking forward to the cooler days of Fall.
