Autumn is Upon Us.

Well autumn is upon us and all the delightful things that come with it.  I so love the fresh crisp air and yes the wind that comes to blow the leaves off the trees.  I do love all the colours the leaves change as well....It never gets old.

I have turned my greenhouse into a sitting area with my flowers.  Hoping they'll last a bit longer.

We've had grizzly bears in our yard digging up the ground.

I've brought in some plants to enjoy inside.  This is my lavender plant that is actually blooming! That a first for me.

Here is a lovely picture of the changing colours on our way to town.

It's also the season for picking cranberries.  It's forecasting snow for tonight so we took the opportunity to go picking beforehand.  It's been raining a lot and I hope it clears soon so we can go out again.  We picked a 5kg bucket of berries and had to take the forest out before tucking them away into the fridge to finish ripening. Then we'll be making jam.

Thanks so much for dropping by!  I do hope you are enjoying the autumn weather... or spring depending on where you're at. :)

I'm sharing this post with The Art of Homemaking Mondays.

We live farther south than you, but just this morning there was a bit of a nip in the air! I love fall -- it's my favorite season! You're pictures make me feel all warm and fuzzy with anticipation! It will probably be another month before fall actually arrives for me, but I'm ready!
What a lovely drive to town - you live in a beautiful place!

My goodness! To bad you can't train those bears to till your garden. LOL. Colors aren't quite changing here yet but thankfully the temps were a little lower this weekend. Enjoy your lovely scenery. Hugs!

LOL those bears decided to check out our yard. I like fall....but I like summer better LOL. Fall is pretty but it just means winter is soon and school is here. ;) But cranberry picking was fun. :)
