Seeing Red...

This is my favorite time of year when the air is crisp and the leaves are changing color before starting to fall and announce that winter is coming. 
Here in southeast Georgia, autumn colors are not quite as obvious as in other parts of the county because we have many trees that are evergreens.
But right now, you can see the reds of fall everywhere...
...and I can't snap enough photos!
Even the ornamental pear in our yard has a few leaves turning reddish - when there are more, I'll have to take a picture for you.

And this photo I just snuck in because I love it!
In the next three weeks, my blogging and my visits to your blogs will be sporadic at best. Like most of you, we just get super busy this time of year and I want to make sure that blogging doesn't become another "should" on my long list of things that need to be done.

So, when I find time, I'll do some posts and try to visit you all because - especially during this upcoming holiday season - I find your blogs immensely inspiring! Thank you!!!


  1. Beautiful fotos of wonderful foliage. I see the new fotos of your two children,,,opps, I mean pets on the right sidebar. They probably look good together with that almost matching fur color. Do they get along? I hope cats and dogs always loved each other. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season with family and friends.

  2. I love those colors. Very nice. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your time. I'm sure we'll run across each other. Have a great rest of the week.

  3. Such lovely fall photos! I totally understand what you mean about sporadic blogging - I fear it shall be the same for me. :) Many holiday things need to be done first! Theresa :)

  4. Silke, those reds are just beautiful! I love Autumn too, and the crispness. But winter is indeed coming. I can feel that too!...Enjoy the weather, the sun, the sky, and your loves,...the 4 footed one included! :-))

  5. Beautiful pictures.:)

  6. Our leaves are practically all down already. So no more bright colours to light up the grey days.
    Have a wonderful time and don't be too busy to enjoy your life.

  7. i always like how we end up sharing our holidays, silke, even when sporadic, there is a collective decorating and celebrating.

    the reds and yellows of fall are spectacular. almost all the leaves in new england are now down, and soon there will be permanent frost.

    time to start readying for the colors and scents of the season. here's wishing you and daniel a fine day of thanks-giving.

  8. Hi Silke! Great to visit with you again...I love this post & seeing how Autumn goes with you. We have no leaves left now! It's so cold here this morning, it's really winter I think - seems to start earlier every year. Wishing you all the good things that the lead up to the holidays bring. Love, Rachel xox

  9. Hi Silke,
    Your photo's of red Autumn leaves are beautiful and vibrant. It is the best time of year for colour!
    The fiery reds are stunning. The photo of Daniel and Winslow is wonderful too! ;-)
    I totally understand about needing time away to work during this time of year. See you again when you return to blogger.
    Autumn blessings.
    Love Jo.

  10. Wundervolle Farben, was für schöne Herbstimpressionen

  11. Hello Liebling Silke, Ah that Winslow is so beautiful. You are so blessed. You have autumn colors and winter air without the snow and ice. Enjoy the holidays. Are you doing the cooking?

  12. Silke these pictures are great! The reds are so rich! And how cute is that picture with your dog! Remember to take some time for yourself as you get busy! :)

  13. Know we will always be here to see you when you are back. Thanks for the light you shine and the time you give. Blessings friend.

  14. I love the red colors of fall! Such beautiful photos, and an excellent photo of Daniel and Winslow. I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  15. Such beautiful leaves. They look especially lovely next to your copper ribbon scarf and the coral wool beret! You couldn't have planned it better. Sending Brawny Man out in the overnight mail to do your Christmas lights. Please return him by tomorrow night! Oh. If you feed him German food, he might want to stay longer. **blows kisses** Deb

  16. Take yourselfe all the time you need,
    sometimes this is most important.
    Have a great weekend

  17. Don't worry about us, we'll be doing the same thing as you - getting ready for the holidays and enjoying the cooler, great out of doors, at least in my case.

    Have a great Thanksgiving - will you be cooking, Silke?
