One Fine Day



                                                                      Hello everyone,

                                                       It is the time of year that often starts out
                                                       misty here in the early morning.
                                                      I enjoy watching the mist lift from the
                                                      pond and garden before the sun burns
                                                      through.
                                                                 I think it gives the garden an air
                                                                  of mystery and romance.


                                                                   The Gardener's Cottage
                                                            But as the day progressed the sun
                                                            came out and a friend came for tea.
                                                            The virginia creeper has turned a
                                                            burgundy red now as fall has struck.

                                                                             Sharon enjoying a bouquet
                                                                             of hydrangeas.
                       After we enjoyed tea and a visit
                               Sharon kindly agreed to be my model
          for a little photo shoot.

                                                                        I love Sharon's pretty prairie skirt
                                                                         and cowgirl boots.....perfect in our
                                                                        little boathouse.
                                                                                 Thanks, Sharon for being
                                                                                 such a lovely model......it was
                                                                                 fun!
                                                                            Can't let the day go by without
                                                                            sharing some garden shots.
                                                                         Love these colors together.

                                                                         Still playing with my camera and
                                                                         so I couldn't resist sharing these
                                                                         garden beauties.

                                                                            Beautiful roses from
                                                                            the garden.
It will soon be time for me
   to reread this enjoyable book.

                                                                          So pretty!

                                                                        Vintage teacup and vase.
                                                                         Thanks, Sharon for the sweet
                                                                         napkin!

                                                             Well, time for tea again.....what a
                                                                        fine day it was.

                                                                       We have a busy weekend coming

It's just so lovely to see your gardens in the fog. We've had foggy mornings here as well then the sun breaks through to beautiful mornings and afternoons. Sharon is a wonderful model and I really like her style!! Have a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend!

It was a wonderful memory made on a beautiful autumn day, the scones and cider were amazing. I am thankful this weekend to have you as a friend. The photo session was a bonus.

Your photos are always so beautiful. What camera do you use to photograph your gardens?

Carolyn said...

Hi Joyce,
Thank you! My camera is a Canon 60D.
I enjoy using it!

Hi Susan,
The hydrangea you asked about is a strawberry vanilla and I also love the deep pink color it turns in autumn.
Thanks for your visit also.

It is so nice to be able to enjoy the presence of a friend and to enjoy a cup of tea together. Her skirt is very pretty. Your flowers looks marvelous. I thought that by now all flowers in Canada would have been gone. They are beautiful! Thank you for sharing these great photos and story with us all.

so sweet of her to pose for you.

Rosamund Pilcher. ..I think Maud used a name like that in one of her stories. :)

Joy said...

I love all of Rosamund Pilcher's books. I've re-read several of them. I think my favorite might be, 'The Shell Seekers'. Her books just whisk one away to another place and a way of living. As always, beautiful photos here.
