Fall Favs



                                                                            Hello everyone,
                                                              It is another beautiful autumn day
                                                              here but we are expecting a heavy
                                                             downpour and windy for the next
                                                             couple of days.
                                                            I was looking through my files for
                                                            some of my previous fall photos
                                                            and picked out some of my favorites.

                                                                    An autumn tea on the balcony.
                                                                             Cozy up with a good book
                                                                             and a tea in a pretty transferware
                                                                             tea cup.
                                                                         Relax by the pond.

                                                                      Enjoy watching the leaves
                                                                      gently falling to the ground.

                                                                       Tea on the autumn porch.

                                                                          A little fall whimsy.

                                                                            Peeking out to the porch.
                                                                     Our cozy autumn porch a few years ago.

                                                                     An autumn lunch on the porch.
                                                                              Tea in the garden.
                                                                           Another lunch in the autumn garden.
                                                         An lastly relaxing around the pond
                                                                  with hot spiced apple cider.

                                                                 . I make spiced apple cider by adding a cinnamon stick,several whole cloves, a few cardamon pods and a few slices of an orange to apple cider..
I bring it to a boil and the simmer for an hour or more. Strain and serve....it is lovely in the fall and makes the house smell so good too!.
                                                                         


                                  I hope you enjoyed a few moments
of relaxation. 

                                      Now,  I better get out to the garden and
                                 do a few things before the downpour
hits us.
                            Today, I am joining the tea parties
                     at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog
              and Rose Chintz Cottage.

                                   Wishing you a lovely day!

                                 Carolyn

I just love the colours in your autumn garden. And the chair on your first photo is adorable. Would love to have it here, lol.
Here's exactly the same weather as at your Place. Sunny and nice.
Hope you have a nice day.
Love Elzie

Carolyn, your photos are so dreamy! I love several shots here. Your apple cider is much like my own except for the cardamon. Will have to try it with those next time. It does make one's home smell so good too! Thank you for sharing with us and do take care the next few days with all that wind and rain coming.

Blessings,
Sandi

Gorgeous photos of your gardens and special spots for tea and lunch in the fall. I love the oranges and golds as they all look warm and cozy. Your header photo is beautiful! The rain has started here already. We're ready for it.
