fall fun

there is a definite change in the air...mornings are cool and crisp...and i love it!
i am so pleased with the growth of the new Jessamine vines i planted, two months ago, to grow up the columns. this is a cross between Carolina and Swamp Jessamine (evergreen and blooms in spring). sorry, can't recall the name, but it sure seems happy!
the creeping ficus vine (fig) across the front of the steps is an idea i saw in Charleston.

i've been slowly pulling out more autumnal decor...
i like to ease into the seasons...

little leaves have fallen on the front porch.

stacked punkins.

crows nesting in the bird cage.

back porch bouquet.

and three of my watercolor paintings which were inspired from magazine photos... oh, how i miss Country Home magazine!

" it's fall y'all" please join the party at
hosted by
southern hospitality
p.s. i realize that my posts have been going back and forth between fall and beachy. well, that is my typical Pisces personality...two fish swimming in opposite directions!
i don't know what i'll be posting next, but i promise it will be
easy on the eyes........and hopefully, inspiring!

Your photography always inspire me. I sense a bit of cinema editing to a couple of them. The stacked pumpkins and the sunflowers.Yes??
Your painting are fabulous. The 1st one looks like a photograph.
I just stopped at the beach yesterday for the first time this year. I preposted a B&W post for Sunday of it.
I got a comment from Scarlet the other day thanking me for the post I did on her at Brimfield. She said a customer came in and told her about me. I assumed it was you???
