Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

A whisper of fall crept through the window

It’s that time of year when gardens fade and a nip in the air begins to alter the earth to a rich patina of fall color.  A few flowers are still hanging in but the garden’s vibrant colors are gone for the season. I took a little drive yesterday on a quest for the peafowl farm that sells peacock feathers along the road side. I had passed it by a few weeks ago but didn’t feel the need to stop. Yesterday that need came calling, so I set out on a hunt for a little turquoise and green. No feathers to be had but I did come across a beautiful field planted several acres deep with gorgeous sunflowers. It made my trip totally worth while.

The sky was grey and dull but this field offered the perfect pop of color to the country side. A whisper of fall crept through my window as I captured this shot. There are good things to be found in every season- remind me of that when I’m whining because the world outside my window is covered in white and temps are hovering below zero.

Faded roses are creeping their way into the play house window, making the love shack soft and dreamy. This rose is melting it’s way into the perfect shade of pink-love that! My favorite colors are soft pinks, creamy whites, mossy greens and chocolate browns. Mmmm

The English Oaks are showering me with an abundance of acorns in the perfect shades of mossy green and chocolate brown. The season is changing slowly and beautifully. I’m curious to hear about the signs of change in your neck of the woods. Tell me how Mother Nature lets you know that fall is just around the corner. Do you hear a whisper?

Studio Pink is in need of a little restocking so sometime this week I will be adding a few images to the shelves- stay tuned for that.

Have a colorful Monday.

  1. Lovin your bowl full of acorns. Our nights are starting to cool off and the shadows at dusk are seem taller. I love the summer to fall change. The air is always cleaner and crisper…even here in the south. Sea Witch

  2. Pretty pretty pretty. Love the shot with the bee. Love that he is in YOUR yard, not mine. Is fall around the corner here in the desert? NO. 6:52 a.m. and the temperature is 80, on it’s way to 103. The shadows are getting longer though, and the animals are shedding and starting on their winter coats, only because that clock is set on hours of daylight, not temperatures. Fall will arrive the night of Halloween, after all the mom’s have made elaborate THIN costumes for the children and they will all be running to Target to get sweatshirts and leggings to wear under them.
