Views from my windows


DSC03876It's raining this morning.


DSC03876I am so glad that I took out my camera on Monday.


DSC03876To capture blue sky views outside my window.


DSC03876So that I could memorize each leaf before they fell.


DSC03876Just like they are doing on this rainy morning.


DSC03876On Monday it seemed that I couldn't walk into any room,


DSC03876without noticing the view outside.


DSC03876This time of year, it seems the falling leaves make me stop.

Autumn windows

Speaking of the lovely outdoors, don't forget that today is Outdoor Wednesday and if you stop by Susan's place, she always has a long list of the outdoors around the globe.

Wow, Karen. The color is beautiful around your home.

We so enjoy all the brilliant colors of Autumn, too. We went for long drives both Saturday and Sunday.

How beautiful, Karen! Such inspiring colors and breathtaking views. You've inspired me to get out the camera and preserve the colors in our own back yard. I'll be able to enjoy the colors even after the leaves have long fallen.

Your view is just terrific! I love the fall colors, your wreath and your dog too. But I think that your garden is beautiful in every season. I remember your gazeebo in snow and some wonderful photos of lily's too. Enjoy the leaves and the colors while they last and remember after the leaves have gone another beautiful season starts.

Well now, I know you posted this days ago but it has just become one of my favorite posts of all time...I would never leave if that's what the world outside my house looked like! Incredibly beautifully gorgeous. Thank you so much for recognizing the exquisite beauty all around you especially today but every day, and in your dreams, which, once you bring to life, brings me such happiness.
