Autumn is evident here and I am seeing signs of it all around ... the air is crisp and cool and warmer clothing is now needed to be worn when we go outdoors and last night the heater was on for the first time.

Some of the leaves are turning golden - I do love Autumn and seeing the carpet of leaves on the ground

Every season hath its pleasures
Spring may boast her flowery prime,
Yet the vineyards ruby treasures
Brighten Autumn's sob'rer time
~ Thomas Moore

I hope April is treating you well my friend


  1. My dear Carolyn,
    Autumn is coming in your town, and here we are happy for the first Spring signs! It took long this year to have Spring here, and slowly it becomes a bit warmer ...
    Wishing you a lovely week, my dear friend, hope you all are well!
    Sending Love and hugs,
    Claudia xo

    has its charm.

  4. My favourite season of the year Carolyn ... it makes my heart sing.
    and such a lovely verse by Thomas Moore to match your autumn pics xx

  5. Hello Carolyn,

    As the trees in your corner of the world are putting on their russet clothes so those here in Budapest are showing their fresh green spring outfits. How wonderful each of the seasons is, bringing with it new scents, tints and tones to delight us.

  6. Autumn is lovely, but Spring is better.......xx

  11. Amazing! Autumn is coming where you live and in Italy spring is in the air.

  12. Yes, dear Carolyn, : every season has its pleasures , and autumn is one of my favorite seasons, ,when one can stay cozy inside, feeling blessed to be able to live in a warmed up house, and being able to buy and wear warmer clothes.Your autumn looks so beautiful, with the many colours!! Here today, it is much like autumn, houling winds and rain pouring down..not much spring !!
    Cozy ,as well, but we so want spring here, now!
    Hugs ,Dorthe
