We've had some gray, chilly mornings and some rain, but we've had some sun and blue skies, too! Still, it is time for flowering plants to come inside for the winter, the leaves on the trees are turning brilliant colors and the sun sets earlier in skies that appear all too ready to say goodnight!  I had posted the leaf last night, but so many commented about it I thought I'd add it to todays post. I found it on my way home from the store yesterday and the colors were so incredible that I couldn't leave it lying in the street!



Hope you all had a great week!  Enjoy!

Lovely photos as usual, Sylvia! I love the pretty red leaf and the skies. And the maple tree is gorgeous too. Thanks for sharing your world and for hosting Our World. Have a great week!

George said...

Your world is certainly very beautiful this time of the year. Thanks for sharing the beauty with us.

The brilliant red leaf discoloring, and the saying beneath it, are inspiring reminders to maintain a zest for life, even when pessimism is biting you around the edges. :))

Cool capture .

ladyfi said...

Ah - what a lovely leaf and such inspirational words too!

MyMaracas said...

Beautiful reds! I am in awe. I have SO much trouble photographing reds.

And I love those little carved fish. What treasures you have - in possessions and in spirit.

Have a nice and happy week* Hugs ***

That little Acer palmatum dissectum is a real joy as are all of your photos. You see one single red leaf and you know it is fall. Your windowsill would make anyone happy. A perfect place for African violets.

Hope you have a most colourful week!

Fabulous..!

SandyCarlson said...

What beautiful photos, my friend. and another fun banner. So much warmth and good feeling here. Thanks so much.

Indrani said...

Wow! Beautiful display. The red is terrific.

lotusleaf said...

Yes, so much warmth and good feeling here! Thank you!

Linda Reeder said...

I like your colorful window sill display. A few fresh flowers just brighten everything up!
I really like the quote with the leaf. I need enthusiasm in my life. When I don't have anything to look forward to, life is a little dark and drab.

Martha Z said...

Grey days here in California, too. Closed the cabin (sigh) for the winter. We were a bit late as we had to shovel a foot of snow off the deck before we could begin the chore.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Love your photos and your quotes Sylvia. Beautiful blog.

Lawstude said...

the first shot here is my favorite, i am wondering if these plants are real 'coz they do look real to me. :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful pictures Sylvia -- the perfect leaf definitely deserved a re-run.

Leovi said...

Delicious autumn colors. As always the pictures of your window are beautiful, and never miss a beautiful sunset. I wish you a happy week.

Gattina said...

Beautiful pictures ! In my part of the world the trees are still green and the flowers still fresh. I think we will go from "summer" to winter right away !

Ebie said...

I could imagine the whole tree filled with this burnt red color!

Whatever it is, I love your header today. And I agree, the sense of humor. The senior surfer should have a good balance!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Your little window ledge is such a delight! And I adore that leaf parading such bold colours!

Stewart M said...

Hi there - what a great leaf and the red bush as well. Fall with you must mean spring with us - but it's still cold here! Lit the fire again tonight.

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Red Nomad OZ said...

Your colours won't be seen downunder in OZ for another 6 months - so it's great to enjoy them virtually!! LOVE your header ...

Sushma Harish said...

they are just lovely Sylvia. The quotes as well as the pictures.

Gaelyn said...

Looks like a colorful fall in your world.

JM said...

Sylvia, you must have a green finger, your plants look beautifully healthy! What gorgeous yard, is it a red Maple Tree?

Sylvia K said...

JM, it is a Japanese Maple and the colors are awesome!! Thanks as always for stopping by! Enjoy your evening!

What a lovely shot of your window sill...beautiful plants and objects on display. Love the red leaf and the prominent red foliage in your second photo. Wonderful quotes too! I'd rather have wrinkled skin than a wrinkled soul!

snowwhite said...

Sylvia,
In your photos, the red is so expressive and impressive! The third one is especially lovely. Your beautiful autumn is getting deeper than the autumn in Nara. All of them are so exquisite!
Best wishes,
keiko

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
