Autumn Colors

I regularly buy myself flowers. I think it's a wonderful way for a woman to show herself a little love. Fresh bouquets have a way of brightening up the room and making everything seem just a bit more cheerful. 



I usually try not to spend too much, but this fall bouquet was a bit of a splurge. I couldn't resist though. I just loved the variety of blossoms.



Autumn is just around the corner, and after my first hot and humid Georgia summer, I'm looking forward to crisp air, crimson leaves, and, of course, pumpkins!



Ozzie is too.



I'm working through each room of my new house slowly but surely, adding a bit of color here and a touch of happiness there...



...and when I need a break from housekeeping, there always seems to be a sweet peach drink nearby. 



Are you doing anything special to welcome the new season?

I, too, think that women should buy themselves flowers. That way they get to pick and choose. Yours are really colorful and fallish. Have a great day.

Hello, Nel! I too love to buy myself flowers, especially during our long winters here in Minnesota! Fall for us is such a treat, and I hope that like last year, our colors will be spectacular. Congratulations again on your move to Georgia, and I hope you're having a great school year!

I'm a flower buyer, too. And sometimes a bouquet is so lovely it is definitely worth the splurge.

Hope your new home and city welcome you warmly! It sounds very nice indeed!
