Autumn inside and out

I like to enjoy the best of autumn both in and outside the home.


The view out of our front window is always so colourful at this time of year from the Liquidambar tree that we planted many years ago.


As the leaves fall they leave a red blanket on the ground that looks good for a few weeks until we clear up all the leaves, as the tree grows larger the job each year takes longer!





It's time to bring out the blankets and throws too, that provide the extra warmth.

                                      
                                           The last of the garden flowers are bought in



Also a few branches to remind us in the evenings, of the colours outside when it is too dark to see them.


Welcome to my latest follower Lazy Daisy Jones thank you for joining me. I  hope you all you enjoy a cosy autumn weekend (or  fresh spring weekend). I'll be out in the garden clearing the leaves weather permitting! If you would like to join in with my Giveaway you still have time- the closing day is Sunday

  1. Love the hydrangeas in the vase and those blankets make me want to snuggle underneath one on the sofa - it certainly chilly here tonight.

  11. Good morning Sarah and sweet Daisy girl!

    ENJOY THOSE sweet sea breezes and think of me. I love the sea but these days, I am rather happy that we are far from its raging fury. Our dear neighbors to the east have experienced the worst weather to date.

    Be well sweet friend! Anita

  12. Hello again - there is something very delicious about the colours at this time of year and your photographs capture this very neatly. Love those blankets - I have 'discovered' a small pile of them in the house recently and thinking of embroidering some of them with some snowflake type patterns - not half as nice as yours.
    Keep warm
    Best wishes
    Jenny

    We too are nestling down and extra blankets are most certainly required.

    Have a fun weekend and keep warm!

  18. Autumn is my favourite time of year - wood smoke, roast chestnuts, crunchy leaves, berry coloured clothes, thick woolly tights, scarves and gloves, baked potatoes, fireworks.... Brilliant!

  20. Lovely post - I envy you your Liquidambar this year. We too have had one for quite a few years and it's normally glorious in autumn. But this year there was far more yellow than red before the leaves fell. The wet summer, I guess.
    Keep up the good work :)

  21. Gorgeous pictures! I love your idea of bringing in branches from the trees. I hadn't ever thought of doing that! I will tuck away that idea until next fall. This year's leaves have already fallen.
