{happy september + the countryside}


. . . there’s something about the crisp early morning breezes of September that always reminds me of the countryside and although am always a little wistful to see summer’s end, Autumn has its own particular loveliness . . .

    Thanks so much, everyone, for taking a moment to say hello – hope you’re having a lovely week so far — off for an early and extended weekend and hope to catch up with you early next week!


  • Oh, I LOVE fall–more than summer for sure. Your photos are so amazing, thanks

  • One of your prettiest image collections ever, I think! can’t get enough of all those roses–every time I think I’ve decided that ranunculus or anemones are my favourite flower, I see some gorgeous roses and fall right back in love with them!

    When I get a yard my first order of bizness will be to train some climbing roses on an arbor!

  • teacups, horses and faucet are my faves. Lovely collection. Sept and Oct are my absolute fave months by a mile!

  • You always post the most beautiful pictures! I’m in love with your blog.
