“As long as autumn lasts, I shall not have hands, canvas and colors enough to paint the beautiful things I see.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
The nights have turned colder. The days warmed by that beautiful autumn sunshine.
Clouds playing against a deep ocean blue sky. Rain falling a little drearier because of its chill. Pumpkins brighten while Chrysanthemums begin to open. Many flowers continue to pump out blooms until frost. Tomatoes slowly ripen on the decaying vines. Apples are unmistakable by their sweet cloying scent and the bees buzzing around them as many lie on the ground now. Leaves starting to turn and fall with that unmistakeable smell that fall has indeed arrived. These are the wonders of fall I began to see as the season arrived this past weekend.
So when my husband brought me home more alstroemeria from the grocery store, I was delighted these opened as burnt orange color.
Perfect for the start of autumn.
And the perfect spot for their display, is in the living room area of the great room.
With this week’s lovely vase, I am linking in to the wonderful meme, In A Vase On Monday, at Rambling in the Garden.
All the pictures shared in this post were taken with my Nikon Coolpix or iPhone camera, and manipulated on my iPhone using the apps, Pixlr and Prisma. You can follow my progress with #the100dayproject in my Instagram and Facebook feed.
