in the morning ...

the flowers reach for the sun ...
a fresh block of suet & filling up the feeders is sure to bring the birds
 (chippies and squirrels too)
I like to have candles burning
first thing in the morning & throughout the evening
rain is in the forecast for later in the afternoon, so I picked some of the cosmos which are tall and so lovely, for a kitchen table bouquet ♥
I think just about every bowl is filled with acorns :-)
Every woodland walk with my grandson ( who loves acorns as much as I do)
has found us returning home with bags full.
We have very happy squirrels and chippies thanks to them too.
Last weekend, I laid out gorgeous bundles of oak leaves that had clusters of acorns attached on our deck only to find them all removed, caps left :-)
hexagon blanket is getting bigger and bigger ...
a little fox has found his way amongst the blanket
working on an acorn today
snips of wool made for a lovely little acorn nest
positive thought in the morning
can change
your whole day

I have never thought of lighting a candle in the morning:)
Love that~
And the blanket and the fox..and the cosmos(next year) as for acorns..I love them too.. but we get a lot..in the front..our neighbors oak hangs over..and when the squirrels start their frenzy..that's what happens..stalks w/ full acorns and then they go wild and the tops come off..
Takes very little time really to rake them up..it's nature..and I think they are so darn cute too..
Rain tomorrow here..
Have a nice weekend:)

I love the earthiness of fall and I know you do,too! How fun to share your outings with your grandson!

Happy Autumn, Deb! :)


Lynda said...

It's rare to find a whole acorn around here! :) the squirrels and chippies get to them first. That's so cute that they enjoyed yours from your display. I know you didn't mind at all. :)

Enjoy this lovely weekend, Deb! I think Fall has arrived! xo

happy autumn weekend Julie marie ♥
your tessy/archer post was adorable xo
wish I could send you an acorn nest ...sadly I can't send acorns in the post (will email you letting you know how I make them).

Deb said...

hi Elaine
sounds as though you have happy birdies in your garden :-D
have a wonderful weekend ♥

Deb said...

hello Monique,
I am an early riser, and find the candles are company ♥
I understand your acorn/squirrel story. The garden in our first home had walnut trees & with a new baby, I would hang out lovely white flannel diapers to dry on the line, only to find the squirrels dropping off walnut peel onto the laundry ... I can still remember pulling in the line :-D

Deb said...

hi jane,
yes, I think that is the love of Autumn ... as you called it "the earthiness" ... love that ♥

Jeanne said...

Beautiful photographs and quote......I love all you share.


Deb said...

hi Lynda,
little acorn caps are scattered all through the lawn ... but I have an idea for them too :-D
it feels like fall today doesn't it ~ lovely and brisk & sunny ~ enjoy xo

Your acorns are much bigger than ours, frankly ours look anemic. The caps on yours are so big, I think you need to save them and make little felted acorns to go tuck under them.

Deb said...

hello Meredith,
isn't it funny how things are a bit different ... nice really. it's the same with our birds.
I have plans for all those acorn caps left by the squirrels :-)
