Around our House
A Perfect Autumn.
Our first one since living here.
I know you've seen a lot of posts already, about this time of year.
But, I still can't get enough of it.
Today, I'm just walking around our yard, taking in every step and moment.
Decorations from nature, adorn the ground.
The sun comes out briefly to show off the colors.
The leaves...they're everywhere!
Maybe that's what this rake is for
that's been leaning against the house since
we moved in. :-)
Some branches are starting to show signs of winter already,
as the leaves flutter to the ground,
leaving me feeling a little melancholy.
I'm not ready for Autumn to end!
("It'll be back next year!" Russell reminds me with a smile.)
All the different types of leaves,
and all the different colors.
Hum, nature's tears, or mine?
Thank you for being here...it's still Autumn here at Patina Moon for a little while longer. :-)
On another note...
I'm experiencing an influx of spam from Blogger.
I don't believe Word Verification is the only answer...any other ideas?
i NEVER allow anonymous comments on my blog - select the registered users / open id option and see if that helps.
No ideas on the spam thing here. :(
I had spam problems too, so I started moderating my comments, so that I can just hit delete on the spam and publish to the non-spam comments. I like doing it this way so far... Good luck with whatever you choose to do!
On the spam note, I was getting a lot too, it didn't show up on my blog but I was getting it into my inbox. I was just deleting it and it kept coming in so I reported it as spam to my email, and I have had no trouble since.
I agree w/ the first commenter - I don't have any issue w/ spam after turning off the anonymous feature.
Firstly - such beautiful photos - there's love in them. =]
Then, that is so funny about the rake... =/ Good thing we have three little slaves to help pick up leaves, around here!!!
But, mostly, I was thinking about how the outdoors is so festive - all on its own. I've been blogging and blogging about outside because it's been so beautifully decorated - I've hardly been able to come indoors... except for when it rains, of course. Then, I always feel SO melancholy when the leaves come down. sigh. The first year in NE, I thought that Novemeber was absolutely YUCK! But, now, I love it's sweet starkness - I do like the combination of natural wood and blue - and the pale and purpley pink light!
Happy autumn to you! Can only imagine how fun it is for to be enjoying the seasons!
PS I know and love this Satie piece that you have playing right now... I have it on a frenchly mystical CD called 'after the rain.' I wonder if you know what I mean by 'frenchly mystical...' =/ =]
The shot of the stones, and the path, I had to look more then once to make sure it wasn't the same path as the one I walked for 17 years in White Rock...eerie....
