Coming & Going
by petal & pins
And just like that summer is over…I feel like I missed it I’ve been so busy but I did get to go for a blissful swim in the ocean in Sydney before I flew to Los Angeles to attend a paper camp for small independent stationery designers.
Crossing the international dateline is a strange thing depending on which way you’re travelling, I lost a Tuesday on the way back and it was offically autumn when I arrived home.
I love after I’ve been away to wander in the garden and see what’s different from when I left – the apples now have their rosey tint, the dogwood leaves are turning russet and the hydrangea hues are fading.
Today I’m joining Cathy from Rambling in The Garden for In a Vase On Monday and while mine is showing the beginnings of autumn in my garden hers will be decidedly showing the delights of spring!
Cathy invites you to take a few minutes to pick something where you are (even if it involves a bit of foraging) and share by leaving a link to and from her weekly post.
This so very lovely, Sandra! ❤
Thank you Eliza!
I’ve always thought that hydrangeas are at their most beautiful when they are fading like this – such beautiful soft colours! Happy autumn 🙂
That last photo has very nice soft pastels.
That did the trick – it was the addition of a ‘www’ that put a spanner in the works!!
It must be very strange, as you say, changing time zones and season in one fell swoop 😉 and your ‘paper camp’ brings all sorts of images to mind… 🙂 The mutes shades of your vase work so well and seem so reminiscent of an autumn dawn or sunrise…a kind of muted soft pinky brown. Lovely – and thanks for sharing
Thanks Cathy 😀 I have resisted feeding my hydrangeas to get stronger stronger brighter colours because I do love the muted shades but am yearning for some blue ones so might need to find a seperate patch to grow and feed them
