October tomorrow

I love summer. I try to convince myself that autumn is beautiful, a palette of rich colour,a time to prepare for Christmas, settling in the warm for winter with some good books, but it doesn’t work. I just start counting the days until spring, especially once the shortest day has past. Leaving for work in the dark and not returning home until dark, I could easily fall prey to seasonal affective disorder. Photos are one the things I use to keep myself sane, looking back over best parts of the year, so I’ve chosen one from each month of the summer to share with you.
April at Buckland
April, not quite summer but full of promise.

May on the quay
May in bright blue.

June my birthday in Brixham
June at Brixham harbour.

July The Grand Western Canal
July relaxed on the water.

August patchwork to the bay_edited-1
August across fields to Lyme Bay.

September Rosemoor
September, my favourite garden full of colour.
It hasn’t been the easiest summer, but it has been rich with experiences and adventures. Now, let winter be short and gentle!

  1. Just gorgeous Gilly and July is my top favourite but only because there’s a horse in the photo..heheheh. All your other shots are just amazing. I love Autumn. There seem to be less leaves here than in Spring..hahaha.
    Thanks for sharing hon. πŸ˜€ *big hugs*

  2. Oh, Gilly, I’m with you! September here hasn’t been too bad, but it’s definitely getting chilly and the leaves are showing that first tinge of brown. The dreary short days can’t be far behind! Thank you for this wonderful summer sampler.

  3. I do love Autumn, the chance to pull on long boots and jumpers, and that lingering golden light, with long lanky shadows. I love the fruit and seeds spilling and bursting all across the earth. I love misty mornings and days with crisp clear skies. But I also love your look back over the summer…..great idea Gilly πŸ™‚

  4. If everything looks this beautiful, I want it to be always October. It’s pumpkin patch adventure for me and family next weekend. How about you? I bet your Fall season will be awesome. Take care!

  5. Aahhh …. fall my favorite time as is spring. Here in Florida they are the same. We have n o changes in colors. The temp match each other but the hot humid days of summer are gone.
    Now, if we could stop the rain that has been falling for weeks. I have just about started to grow webbed feet. ~~~~~~ : – )
    Love these all, Gilly. Thanks for the walk down summer’s lane.

I would love to hear from you . . .
