I’m an Autumn kind’a Girl


If I had to choose one season over the others, it would definitely be Autumn!
Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Spring is wonderful with its profusion of bright colorful flowers and who can resist the first sprigs of spring after a dull gray lifeless winter…


But I’m an Autumn kind’a girl.
Autumn holds memories of cool damp mornings that fade into warm golden afternoons. Only to be followed by midnight blue skies filled with bright shining diamonds twinkling above.
Even the moon appears brighter in the autumn night.


I do have to admit that I love the cotton candy shades of the color wheel, but I’m always drawn away by the warm subtle undertones of reds, yellows, and orange. After all, Autumn is my favorite time of year.


What is your favorite season…I’d love to know.

It really is a toss up between Spring and Autumn. I'm not a summer or winter gal. Great photos Cori G!

Thanks Ellen B! I was at Roger's Gardens the other day and it was all dressed up in Autumn colors. So, you're an Autumn girl too!! Great minds think alike :-).

Is this fun Autumn collection at your home? So fun. While we used softer colors of a garden when we built 10 years ago I'm getting ready to have a friend who is a decorator come in to help me rethink everything. I want to go with deep colors. I have a beautiful photo of Fall leaves...deep shades of reds, greens, golds and even some purples. So I'm going Fall inside next.
All I know is that summer is NOT my favorite season at all because of our humidity. I love snow and brisk cold, the flowers and freshness of Spring and the depth of color of Fall with it's cooling balm. So there's undecided for you. (c:

Hi Pam,
aren't the colors lovely? We have a garden shop here called Roger's and each year they put on the most spectacular displays. This was set up as part of their Halloween display. I love the contrast between all the and purple just happens to be one of my favorite color combinations.
Have fun with your interior redecorating ;-).

My favorite season is fall and I don't have to think about it for a moment. I don't enjoy the hot weather that summer brings, so I just feel like I totally come alive when fall blows in. The colors, the weather, the smells and even the comfort food just all blend together into JOY for me!
Love your pix!
Happy Autumn.
