signs of fall

The beauty of the fall season is arriving bit by bit each day. Fall time makes me appreciate living in New England more than I already do. The light becomes more golden, the days become shorter, and we retreat inside into the cozy warmth of home a little earlier each day. Here are some of my favorite fall photos so far from this lovely season.

a turn in the garden

To take a turn in the garden seems such an English thing to do. The big house is surrounded by gorgeous gardens. I try to get out there each day to see what is coming up and try to spot some critters- hummingbird moths, butterflies, swallows, wild turkey, even deer. Every time I walk out there I’m just filled with gratitude and happiness.
