Show and Tell Friday

Autumn is a favourite time of year for me. The trees have on their colourful autumn gowns, the Canada geese, honk as they fly overhead, preparing to move to warmer climates for the winter. (Some do stay here, but others fly south.) Apples and other fruits and vegetables are being harvest. Squash, pumpkins and sweet potatoes are abundant at farmer's markets and grocery stores. The sights, sounds and fragrances of the season are like comfort food for the senses. They make me think back to my childhood on the farm, where autumn was a busy time.

I always like to decorate a bit for autumn and one of my favourite things are scarecrows. The photo above is of the table that sits on our porch as it was about a month ago. Now, the plants are inside and the boy with the watering can is tucked away for the winter. We've had a couple of killer frosts and I'm glad I brought the plants in when I did.

If you would like to take part in Show and Tell, please drop by and visit Cindy at My Romantic Home.

  6. Nice. Living in southern California I don't have to worry too long about frost. But we do get frost warnings even where I live. It has even snowed once or twice where I live. Just didn't stick. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.

  10. I love scarecrows too. We have 2 outside. I will post pics later on. It's been too rainy here so I haven't had a chance. I also like to sneak pinecones in all my floral arrangements. Fall is my favorite season too. I love the colors and the smells and all the baking I end up doing!

  12. Autumn has always been a bad season for me. I don't like the colored leaves because they die, the trees become naked and the cold moves in.
    the only thing I like about fall is the decoration and the pumpkins, lol !
