Autumn Lakeside


We were able to sneak in a little boating leaf tour right before the temperatures nose-dived into the “too-chilly-to-boat” range~ which for me is anything below 60 degrees :)

“Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.”
-   George Eliot

Hope you’re enjoying a delicious Autumn!

Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:

  1. Mary, between your design skills and beautiful photography you have one of THE best blogs in the “sphere”! If you ever run out of ideas, I’m sure we all lwould ove to see how you’ve decorated your houses. Your tablescapes are enchanting, I’m sure the rest of your environment is equally as gorgeous. I look forward to your emails with anticipation because I get lost in your posts……..

  5. Fall color almost passed us by this year. Leaves went from green to brown, a shame since Maine is usually so rich with color. Guess that is part of the crazy weather systems there have been.

  7. Beautiful pictures, Mary. Your part of the world is so picturesque, and you capture it beautifully. Thanks for sharing.
