Our World!

Autumn is the perfect time to take account of what we've done, what we didn't do, and what we'd like to do next year. ~Author Unknown
Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits. ~Samuel Butler
And Happy Halloween!!!
...I see
the turning of a leaf
dancing in an autumn sun,
and brilliant shades of crimson
glowing when a day is done...
~Hazelmarie "Mattie" Elliott

Time for Our World again!! This is a wonderful way to find, see and enjoy the beauty, the fun, the good and even the not so good things about our world today and to share them!! Hope you will join us!!

Great autumn shots. The scarecrow is a hoot.

I think I'll order that new verion of Windows Sylvia as long as I get a cut of your royalties. Not so sure about the scarecrow though - it looks a bit, well, scary, a bit of a bummer really. But it has given me an idea for our next local scarecrow competition.

You live in such an extraordinarily beautiful place, Sylvia - your photos are perfect for fall. We've several times talked about moving to that part of the country, I'm just not sure I could handle the grey winters. Have a great week!

The colours of your trees are breath-taking! Yesterday many trees overhere were uprooted, because of the gale that blew over west Europe.
I wish you a lovely autumn week.

Lowell said...

I've never see pumpkins "mooning" folks before! What a great shot that is! The people in that house might get arrested, though - by the piety police!

Hope you're having a great week thus far, too.

James said...

Nice shots! The scare crow is too funny. :-)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Beautiful colors -- that mooning scarecrow is too funny!~

A brown-eye for Halloween? It is a wonder your blogpost hasn't been censored!
Have a very happy Halloween my dear.
Granddaughter has brought an imported pumpkin from your side of the world home for some fun. They won't be in season here for another 6 months.

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.
