Embracing Autumn



 One can't hang onto summer forever. Now that autumn is officially here, I'm ready to embrace all the loveliness of the season. Like these red, red apples, hundreds of them, hanging over a fence along my walk. 
 

And the grasses, taller than I am, rustling in the wind along the bog path. Moody skies that remind me of a Bronte novel.
 

A collection of bits and pieces accompanied me home. Leaves, warmly coloured, bits of bark and seed pods.


Together with candles the bits and pieces add an autumnal air to the dining room. Autumn is here in all her glory. I'm ready to enjoy her. How about you?

Mersad invited me to link up to his Friday My Town Shoot Out which features Seasonal Changes this week. There are lots of interesting shots from around the world there.

I absolutely love your images, they are perfectly symbolic of the fall season. You should link up with Friday My Town Shoot Out. The theme is "Seasonal Changes". You can find the link on my blog. I love autumn and the colors it brings with it.

Okay, I'm hanging my head in shame here. LOL Fall is not my favorite season but I do love the fresh apples, cider, cool gardening weather, and lovely colors. Photos are beautiful.

Lovely post, Lorrie.
Yes, I am so ready for fall. Our temperatures here are cooperating and I am enjoying the cooler air.
Were you tempted to pick one of those gorgeous red apples as you went by? I know I would be.
Your centerpiece is lovely with the natural elements and ample candlelight. Just perfect for this time of year.

We have a few heritage apple trees around town, and every year, I mean to get out to them with my camera. But my photos wouldn't come near capturing what yours do. Lovely!

I LOVE autumn & have the whole house decorated for the season, since Sept. 1st! LOL I should take some photos but my table doesn't look half as pretty as yours.

Lovely images of autumn you've shared.

We so enjoy the season in all it glorious beauty. It's been a lovely one so far (not counting those two crazy snowy days we had earlier in the month).

I always like now you bring your little outing treasures into your home... delightful centrepiece.

You created a beautiful fall centerpiece with finds from your walk. So lovely to have new crop apples to eat these days. I could eat two a day!

Marilyn said...

The red apples are spectacular. Your table is just beautiful! You definitely captured Autumn.

Ileana said...

Beautiful images of the fall!

Mary Cromer said...

Such lovely images, very soothing to have Autumn arrive, however, I am always hard to allow Summer to fleet from my embrace. I never seem to get enough of any season, for I am always so far behind in everything and cannot catch up even to the seasons changing...ha I am such a mess ;)

Donna said...

I love those candles!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

You created a nice centrepiece for autumn.

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

I miss Autumn! Does anyone share those apples with you? :) Lovely Fall display with the candles and bits of nature. Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

We are just back from our 50th Anniversary trip to Orcas Island - so nothing has been done for fall yet - but now that the weather has turned cooler it is time to think of things like that. My mums are glowing on the deck - the leaves are turning and the grasses showing signs of being finished with their season - we move along the year.
