The Golden Autumn in the Offing

In a few minutes the sun was shining this Sunday early evening. I threw up the window and managed to snap a photo. Isn't it incredibly beautiful when the fall knocks at the door? Now I'm back at the keyboard and the sun have embedded herself in the cuddly cloud-blanket again.

Little Lamb said...

Fall is a pretty time of year.

ANNA-LYS said...

Birthday coming up, okey

So we can congratulate ;-p

ANNA-LYS said...

Little Steak
Absolutely the most beautiful colours,
even if bbq season will soon be over

foam said...

i love the beauty of fall. unfortunately my nose doesn't seem to like fall though .. sniffle ..
your trees are stunning. in a few weeks ours should be a similar hue.
i think you found your heart of gold where you live right now?

Little Lamb said...

Little Steak!?!! Not Lamb Chop?

ANNA-LYS said...

Yes, home is where my heart is,
sorry about Your nose, dear.

Lamb Steak
I mean:
garlic and rosemary marinated lamb steak with home-made pear chutney ... that's why I find You a tasty creature ;-p

foam said...

oh .. if you are having lamb steak i'm coming over!

Little Lamb said...

This is what I get for making friends with humans! :-)

goatman said...

Hate to be contrary, but I am dreading winter. The downtime, chopping wood, inside reading, outside walks in the coldchills.

But what goes around . . .

Nice photo, great tree.

Butterfly Mage said...

That was a very pretty picture :)

It was raining in Baltimore, so it was more of a day for blasting away slavers and raiders in Fallout 3.

ANNA-LYS said...

The closest tree
is a Pimpernöt
or Staphylea pinnata L.

Tyko Brae (exgen. NB) said...

Is it autumn already? The bush 'Staph...' is rare in Sweden. Your place seems to be special.

ANNA-LYS said...

Bring the Lamb, bring the lamb! :-)

Little Steak
Can't help it - born human, always human :-)

ANNA-LYS said...

Long time - No see
But You have been chopping wood I guess.
Same procedure here, but I love it, I don't have to pay for my work-out :-)

Butterfly Mage
We need those days too :-))

ANNA-LYS said...

My Pimpernöt/Pinnata is huge, so it is a tree. Pimpernöt/Pinnata was found in Skåne/Very very South Sweden by Linneus as early as year 1749. It is one of the three first imports :-)

Still, this is a special place :-)

dianne said...

Beautful view from your window Anna-Lys, I love Autumn myself, cooler days, colder nights and that lovely warm glow of golden colour all around.
xoxoxo ♡

Anne said...

Skogens gull!!

Ida said...

Et gyllent øyeblikk dette.

God ny uke ønskes deg! :)

Gunnar said...

September and Ocotober are wonderful in the part of Sweden where I live. November I just wanna get away somewhere else...

Pete said...

something we don't get in South Africa... well not to the same extent as overseas

ANNA-LYS said...

Sorry for the delay
my dog is having puppies
any time now :-D
The window view is my right side of the backyard, I will open more windows, when the sun allow it :-D
The Autumn is a lovely time
we Swedes has to tell this
20 times a day, to not get
into season depressions coz
we are aware of the dark time
coming up after this present beauty.

ANNA-LYS said...

Hej Anne
gyllende varmt välkommen tillbaks
till min lilla hörna på blogger.
(( klem ))

och alla dessa vackra Norska tjejer
som tittar in och värmer mitt hjärta
(( klem ))

ANNA-LYS said...

I don't think we live so far from each other except that I live by the west-coast, it is always warmer by the Mexican Gulf stream. (At least it use to be before BP changed everything.)

South Africa has You
and You are gold worth :-)

dianne said...

Good luck, I hope all goes well with the birth of the puppies, such wonderful news this is. ((hugz))

xoxoxo ♡

ANNA-LYS said...

Sometimes new News gets old
more in the Blogoland than
elsewhere. Here is a link
to the old news :-)

dianne said...

Gunnar said...

Thank´s for your comment in my you too Anna-Lys!

One of the things I missed most living in Southern Africa was the changes of the seasons.

But in November I wouldn´t mind going back to south Africa!
