Fall

There is much excitement on blogville for the fall season. It is for us, a reprieve from the heat, but we don't have the experience of those beautiful fall colors like....




The creativity on Linda's life journal


It is for us in Arizona, a time to 'exhale" and not have a heat blast when stepping outside. Some plants even think it is spring again and give forth one last beauty like this one from my rose bush.............
There are a few signs of fall around my house like.........

this little book on a shelf and

this little wall hanging but I must confess they are always here but wait I did buy something just for fall......

Sure can't accuse me of over doing it:)

And I did finish this scarf..............

which probably won't be needed until maybe Dec. but then there has been some years that I did my Christmas shopping in shorts so only time will tell. For some of you it is more like Dawn expressed on her post "The Waiting game"



"It knows that as soon as it gives in to the fall,
the winds of winter will begin breathing down our necks."

I often miss the beautiful changing seasons but then.....comes all that snow.

While I sometimes grumble about the weather, I am thankful for four distinct seasons in my area.

Gorgeous scarf! Enjoy wearing it on your cool days/evenings.

Over doing it is Over rated anyway:) (And more to dust around I say!
Fall is beautiful...I wish it could last through winter;)

I hear you - we have the four seasons here too - but moderately - this summer was hot and I am looking forward to some relief - actually we are having it now and I am enjoying it.

Have fun in your fall.

I have always lived in a place with distinct seasons, though they may have been short ones. Can't imagine shorts in December!

Love this post. Love your beautiful pictures. Love that rose. I'm with you on liking the change of seasons while dreading all the snow to come.
