Autumn Time

Hello everyone~ I hope you are all ready for the weekend. After the horrific week many of you have endured because of Hurricane Sandy, I pray that today you are safe and your needs are being met.

I would like to share a few photos of Autumn on our fair island. A couple of weeks ago my hubby and I enjoyed taking a walk through one of our many trails here on the Island. Walking through the woods always brings to mind this little song we used to sing when we were children......

"Over the river and through the woods,
to grandmother's house we go..." ~ Traditional Children's Song

The beginning of the trail with leaves strewn about the path.....

Look way up to see the canopy of beautiful colours overhead.

I love the sound of leaves crunching beneath our feet.

These trees were in a clearing on our way back to our car.

This is the view in our back yard.

This is the birdhouse on top of the clothes line post, also in our backyard. Sorry it's not clearer. I had to stand on the deck to shoot it.

Our pumpkin in the bird bath.

Our wreath on the door. Would you like to come in?

"I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion." ~ Henry David Thoreau

After our nice brisk walk, how about a cup of tea?

Please help yourself to a cinnamon roll or snail as my son has always called them. They sit on a pink JB plate which I found at a thrift shop.

Thank you for visiting today and  enjoy your day!

I'm sharing this with the following parties and thank you to our lovely hostesses -
