ALONG THE CANAL

A short sweet post while I get the houseboys on best behavior for the Mother. Before she arrived , on Monday I had a lovely stroll along the canal. The trees are really starting to get some color, and it was that brisk feel many here enjoy in the fall.

And would you look at the size of this leaf!!!!!!!!!!
I also picked up two pumpkins. But it was overwhelming trying to find 
the perfect two.....
I love all the hues.

  1. I can see why you were overwhelmed choosing just Two, I haven't even bought a Real Pumpkin yet, the choices being endless and this Year Princess T really doesn't Care, so mebbe it's not necessary? I Photographed them all... that satiated my Desires for Pumpkin this Season. *winks* What a Glorious View you have for a Walk and I would have Kept that enormous Leaf for my Naturalist Jar, if it would even have fit, perhaps frame it if it wouldn't. Mother Nature sure knows how to show out and show off doesn't she?

    1. Yes...but I didn't know if I liked best the traditional orange, the pretty whites ones or some avocado pumpkin squash. I settled on three mini pumpkins for my window sill.

  4. Very pretty, except for the pumpkin orgy. *SHUDDER*. Is that leaf big enough to cover the territory if you wanted to dress (or undress) as Adam?

  5. Love the colors! I think the idea of pumpkins is super cool. I have no talent for carving them, but I love seeing what people do with them.
    And that's a HUGE leaf. Huge.

  10. I don't think you ever featured the canal before...it's gorgeous and looks very northeast, loving the foliage. And I want to live in that house...love the blue.

  11. It's a different colour and the wrong shape, but that house reminds me of The Maitland's house in Beetlejuice! And also, of Jane's and Alex's houses in The Witches of Eastwick (I think it's the proximity to the water?).

    That leaf is like a parasol. Just right for nature-loving lady such as yourself!

  17. The colours are magnificent, but I still hate autumn. Our clocks go back this weekend, and that's the end of "British Summer Time" (and any evening daylight) till March... Jx

  18. Yet another reason to drink!!!!! I agree...in a week the trees and bushes will be in all there splendor... And then the leaves will fall. Then it will be as you say....the Season of Decay.
