Welcome Fall

Winter is an etching,
Spring a watercolor,
Summer an oil painting,
and Autumn a mosaic of them all.
~Stanley Horowitz

Today is the first day of Autumn, and here are a few pictures that I hope will get you into the season.

























We hope ya'll have a fun Fall weekend.

So funny, I was on my home from a shower and found myself thinking that I needed to check out your blog to see if you had done a new post. I come home and find a comment from you on mine. Weird or what? (twilight zone music now playing in my mind). Love all of your photos! The smiling jack and the guitar playing scarecrow made me smile so big! Those snapdragons are so gorgeous.

Oh Sheri, these colors and articles are just the right thing I need to feel the fall mood! TOday, we are having one of those lovely "Indian Summer" days but I think I am ready for the fun of fall! AND WHAT A WONDERFUL quote you left me on my art blog my dear. YES, I do believe that through blogging friendships, we feel the connection MORE because we are challenged to EXPRESS beyond our imagination. Every blog post is an exercise in creativity and when we practice that more and more, we find out dormant talents in ourselves and then link with others. It is interesting that in the physical world, people don't open up as much. Many special friendships are made in blogland and I am so very happy to have come to know you more! THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY FRIEND and enjoy all the beauty! Anita

Hello,
Thanks for introducing yourself and stopping to visit my blog. I love southern California. I try to visit whenever I can. I am an old movie buff, so I can imagine all the goings on there around the 20's and 30's.
I am your newest follower. Your fall pics are great!

Toni said...

Love all the fall pictures. I had to giggle when I saw the guitar playing pumpkin. Too cute.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will be looking for your red bedroom. Off to visit your blog for awhile.
