Autumn is one of our favorite times of the year! Here in Upstate, NY, and in our little village… the colors, sights, and smells of the season are simply magnificent!
My Autumn Entrance
Early this morning, while driving down into our little village, the mist was so thick, and the radiant beams of sunlight made everything look as if it were on fire. As I looked around… these thoughts came to me.
What beauty lies beneath the mist
What treasures to behold
And might I ask what you’re hiding there
Under resplendent rays of red & gold
But soon enough the mist will rise
And there for all to share
The wonderful form & fashion of nature uncovered
As it now lay open, uncovered, and bare
I’m not sure about how the season is going in your area, but here, we have had unseasonably warm weather, lots of sunshine, and many of the leaves are still on the trees! Because our leaves are almost always on the ground by the 2nd-3rd week of Oct., you can imagine how thankful I am for this wonderful blessing!
I wanted to take you on a little journey with me, so you could see the village through my eyes today.
We’ll start with my front door…
I’m so thankful for my husband’s help with pulling our new entrance together! I just love it 🙂
I wanted to do something different this year to celebrate my new front entrance being done, so I decided to throw together some of my favorite Autumn things & make a display. I just love all of these Fall colors together!
More ornamental cabbages close up – I just LOVE these!
With this only being the first year for our new “upper garden”, I think it has filled in nicely! I’m looking forward to seeing the chartreuse sedum & the chocolate leaves of the ajuga, against the deep blue ajuga flowers spikes in the Spring.
All of the different ground covers are filling in the front walk nicely.
This is our crab apple’s first year with us, and look at the beautiful little fruit!
A Walk through Forest Park – Our wonderful forest located in the heart of our little village, available for all to enjoy!
He wasn’t home when I stopped by
Around the Village
And back into the village – We’re greeted with this amazing hedgerow of fiery red burning bushes
I hope you’ve enjoyed our little ride together! Be sure to leave a comment & tell me about how your season is going so far below!
** I have been working on several projects & I will be sharing pictures & how to’s really soon!
