grateful...

autumn is fleeting.
i savor my playtime outdoors.

with camera in hand.
i squirrel away my time.
brush to canvas will have to wait for winters cold.

for now...



i drink in these gentle days.......













with an
oh, so
grateful heart.

me too -coffee in hand, loving the images, groovin' to the music, though I am not familiar with Lament, but lingered long enough to enjoy Rowing Song.

The images are helping me ease into this overcast Monday.

Did I ever tell you that sometimes I leave your post open as I go visit others and just continue to enjoy your musical selections? Occasionally though another one opens and the Stones come blasting out from the new blog and it is pandemonium!

Happy Monday dear!

Love your post? Wherever do you get your amazing ideas? So tiny, so sweet. One would expect to see wood fairies dancing. I have two giant oak trees and they don't produce nice acorns like that. I'm jealous :)

Erin, thank you for this beautiful post & wake-up call. Autumn is my most fave season & i am missing it stuck at home with my lists of things to do. I am taking note of your words & am going to get back ou into the beautiful soft hued countryside and enjoy it whilst it lasts. AS you say winter will soon be upon us. Stunning images, especially the weee house & the acorns, it conjurs such tales in my mind x

Wow, this little photo story is to precious, Erin. I adore it. I love your acorns, too. The squirrels and jays got to all of ours before I could photograph them, leaving just the little hats behind! Anyway, just wonderful images dear. xo – g

Beautiful as usual. We have been watching the squirrels gathering acorns like crazy around here. Miss Molly chases squirrels up the nearest tree every chance she gets. Silly girl.
