Goodbye to all that

"Autumn has caught us in our summer wear." - Philip Larkin

  1. I am ready Gaye, some sweaters have been brought out, today is one of those rainy, stay inside days!

  2. Hi Gaye, Those photos look so current. 1948? Amazing.
    Thanks. Mary

  3. Oh Karena! I am so envious! Not a drop here.....the worst drought since 1895! SOB!!
    what lovely pictures.....can you believe 1948? I was born in 1947!! Chic beyond!!! They could have been taken yesterday with a pashmina and great driftwood!

    Autumn......our slipcovers are changed......a bit different.....My husband did say...."I came home to a different house! It feels like fall around here"!!

    It really does change the mood. and I have switched things around a bit....no big changes. It feels really wonderful to have a "fall" atmosphere.....

    It is a very inexpensive way to change the seasons......everything lasts 3 times longer; and it sure beats having three houses!

    Atmosphere is important to me!

  4. What timelesss beautiful images. I would not have guessed 1948. Still glorious summer weather here.

  5. Beautiful pics! Fall is my favorite time of year.

  6. Autumn has certainly caught us in our Summer wear here in Greece.
    What a unexpected and sudden change in the weather.

  7. "Back now to autumn," he elsewhere wrote, "leaving the ended husk." Your posting captures both perspectives with absolutely ideal imagery. I think this is one of the finest sights I've seen online in some time; certainly the most beautiful.
