I’m so glad to live in a world where there are Octobers

LM Montgomery

The weather was gorgeous this weekend, I had a long walk outdoors and I was so pleased to see beauty in every corner.

Like this visitor in our small bay. Blue heron birds generally stop by this time of the year during their migration to the south. It’s not easy to get them to be still for the photo, I think this one enjoyed all the attention.

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I was a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns”

George Eliot

The trees are beautiful and graciously letting go of their leaves.

And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep and Autumn was awakened

Glad I could enjoy this warm weekend outdoors, and I cleaned up the backyard and the barbecue as well. It’s time to turn my attention to indoors and inward to myself.

I hope you had a great weekend and a lovely starting of the week.

I’ve just noticed that my last ‘noticing’ post was in May! Oh my goodness! How the time flies and I let go of things that give me pleasure so easily!

First of all: Happy new season to you!

In my part of the world, we are entering Autumn. It’s so pretty out there! I had a long walk in the woods this weekend, noticing how slowly the changes are happing, how the earth is getting ready for the winter. 

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

Good Morning!

This pretty white mushroom is on my backyard, the only one white. We have plenty of brown ones.

It’s so pretty, I can see it from my kitchen door. I love the contrast with the green grass.

I was curious to know if it was edible or not, so I googled white mushrooms and the first sentence I read was “the most deadly mushrooms in the world are white“. Well, my gorgeous white mushroom will be there decorating my garden for how long it wishes!

“All mushrooms are edible, but some only once in a lifetime.” unknown

Have a great week my friends!

Few things that made smile this week:

my autumn decoration made with leaves from my maple tree and tiny vases.  they are spread all over my home now. I do this every year, autumn leaves replacing the summer flowers.

i went to get a cup of tea and came out with this delicious spider donut. i  couldn’t resist its cuteness! surprises from Tim Hortons, a coffee chain here in Canada.

an early morning view from my living room window.

noticing little things along the way.

wishing a wonderful weekend to you!
