A Fall Party

Hello everyone, welcome to my little corner of Rhondi's Fall Party over at Rose Colored Glasses. Although today on Prince Edward Island it is a summery day with an expected temperature of 24 degrees Celsius we have been having cooler nights and even had frost a couple of nights. So Fall is definitely in the air here. The terrace above is taking on it's fall colors with a change in linens ,a fall bouquet and the virginia creeper is changing to a maroon color.

Our veranda has been re done in fall colors.

The garden is taking on it's fall colors too.

I love this big fall bouquet I made from flowers and berries etc. from the garden.

The colors of autumn are everywhere

even indoors -I have a cozy corner for you to sit and have a cup of tea.

Why not have some sticky date pudding too-it is a lovely fall dessert.

Have a happy fall and enjoy the party at Rhondi's lovely place Rose Colored Glasses.

Thank you Rhondi for hosting.

And thank you for visiting me,

Hi Carolyn
When I saw you'd joined the party I couldn't wait to see what beautiful photos you would show us. The terrace looks so pretty with the vines changing color. That red tree,it looks like a Japanese maple, lights up the garden. Your porch is so cosy looking and I know I can always get a good cup of tea here, which is something I can't say about living here in the southern US!
Thanks for joining the party.
Hugs, Rhondi

Madelief said...

Hi Carolyn,

Your fall party looks gorgeous! What a beautiful bouquet from your garden. I wish I still had so much flowers! I my garden everything is at an end. The bushes with berries have lost their leaves already. The only flowers still in bloom are Dahlia's, Cosmea's and Zinnia's. I hope they will hold a little bit longer!

Have a wonderful wednesday! Lieve groet, Madelief
