Do you have a favorite time of year? I do, and right now it’s
A U T U M N.
Actually, I always get excited when the end of summer rolls in…
It’s just a matter of time before the leaves begin turning and the light changes. Plus, people’s priorities change, kids go back to school —and, it’s not SO HOT! (lead photo: Mammoth Lakes, CA)
Here is a short post, including several photos that are garden and nature inspired to reflect the joy this season brings.
“The Welcome” at a Front Door
Getting into the fall spirit with this warm color inspired entrance planter. Passing this by, put a smile on my face!
Taking a Road Trip is Easier in the Fall
Less crowds and kids are back to school makes traveling in fall so much easier. On this autumn road trip we went to the mountains of the Eastern Sierras and drove and camped in Junes Lakes, Mammoth, and Yosemite. It was much cooler and we were able to see the Aspens turning colors.
Even a 17 year old terrier Pooch enjoys cool afternoon hiking in her pack
She hiked over 3 miles on a few hikes before really wanting and needing to take a ride in her pack…Wait until you see the next photo of this 17 year old pooch. She clearly loves her time outdoors in autumn!
Roz (dog) Enjoying the scenery and Alpine lakes of the Eastern Sierras!
The cool weather of the Eastern Sierras in early October is perfect weather for an older dog like Roz. If she’s not hiking, sleeping or eating, she’s sight seeing! Woof. 🙂
Enjoying Half Dome at 7 in the morning! Fall lighting and Yosemite is Inspirational!!
Mop head Hydrangeas Blooming into Fall
These large flower heads make outstanding cut and dried flowers. The blooms are big and make great impact and also look wonderful paired with blooms of other large summer to early fall flowering plants like Agapanthus, for a bold statement.

Timed right, in almost peak autumn color, an Airplane trip over Westchester, New York!
Hope you enjoyed the photos and were able to get into the spirit of the season! Life goes by so fast, and for that reason I particularly like to see, taste, hear, touch and smell each season!
