  1. It is the time for pumpkins! I love the autumn scene.

  2. I like how the mother seems attentive to her son. Often I see parents gazing into cell phones these days rather than engaging with their children.

  3. very nice collection of pix, spec. the autumn colors...

    ReplyDelete
  4. An excellent set of seasonal shots. It was neither summer nor autumn here yesterday, we went straight to winter!

    ReplyDelete
  5. A lovely eclectic group of pics Carol ... I love the Mum with her son capture with autumn leaves forming a plush carpet underfoot.

  8. I love businesses that decorate with pumpkins this time of the year, as in your last photo, Carol! It always looks so autumn festive and makes me happy :)

  9. Your autumn colours are looking wonderful!

  10. I love the full glory of autumn, but there is something to be said about the neither-summer-nor-autumn bit in-between. I actually love that. You still get some of the greenness of summer, but you get an infusion of colors from autumn, too.

  11. It is great to visit your blog and it's also a pleasure to see you on my blog.
    Have a great week.

  25. the pictures were beautiful...perfect for each link you shared. I love to take pictures and it hadn't occurred to me that the links you gave would be such an inspiration. Thank you for the idea...I just could not find a new way to look at what I see.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like the hint-- twice the amount of frosting, half the calories... but I probably would pile it twice as high!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Gorgeous shots, Carol! Love the first one with beautiful autumn colors!!

  28. Nice pictures today, Carol. I like the first the best, it looks like a fun place to run (if I still could).

  42. WOW...it's really Fall there isn't it? Pretty colors and I noticed leaves on the ground under that bench. It's still summer here, but I did get to turn off the A/C for a couple of days. In fact, I took three morning walks...outside! What a treat.

    Get out your dolls and play! You know the vintage Vogue dolls were made in Medford, MA.
