Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.

  1. I used this saying on my CelebrateTheSeasons blog. Isn't it just wonderful! Ilove this photo. Is it the view from your garden? And that photo at the header is amazing with the sheep and fog. Is this also taken at your house?

    Hope you are enjoying autumn each day!

  2. Great minds, Heidi! I'm quite sure this isn't the first time you and I have independently used the same quotes.

    Yes, both pictures are at our place. Thank you so much for your kind words.

  3. Nan, when I first saw this entry I thought-oh, there's one of those black & white pictures that Nan likes. Elizabeth Lawrence has such a gentle face. After reading her quote I had to Google her name. Is she the same Elizabeth Lawrence that wrote about gardening? I went to this web site and went on the tour of the garden http://www.elizabethlawrence.org/index.html
    There's a wonderful picture of her at her garden gate. You've introduced me to such interesting people, books, and films.

  4. She is indeed, Catherine Mary. And I believe she was a gentle spirit. Thanks for the website. It's wonderful, and I'll be spending some time looking around. Doesn't her house just look so perfectly sited there, as if it is a part of the grounds? I love that. And thank you for what you said. That pleases me so much.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
