Autumn in La Liviniere

Autumn colour in La Liviniere

It’s here!?!!

I must admit I often feel flat at this time of year, well for the first few weeks anyway – no more bare legs and t-shirts, no more swimming outdoors, cold dashes out of the shower…  But finally I somehow get into the swing of it and embrace the warm fires inside, the hearty meals and walks in the brisk air.  And after so many years of braving the cold INDOORS when I rented in Australia, I am loving and embracing the central heating everywhere.

I must admit I took this shot a while back, but I still love it

Yes, Autumn has arrived but thankfully with all its magical colour.  It’s making me think ORANGE!

I’m loving this colour right now and thought I’d put together a few of my favourite ‘orange’ pictures…  And f you’ve wandered around this blog already, you might have picked up on the fact that I do have a little thing for collages.  I’m pathetic, once I like something, I can’t stop! (my lovely girlfriends had diagnosed me at the age of 14 with O.C.D).

So hulahup, Barbatruc, here’s another one for you.

    Brilliant oranges – lucky you for having such lovely colours! Ours are not very good this year, mostly brown :-(. And I spy more coquelles, guess you can’t have too many?? 🙂

      I’m glad you like the oranges Andreas. But I can’t belive it’s all brown your way!?! Your area is so beautiful! And there is beauty in brown!

      …and yes, a few in the collection. Another C.O.D. hiccup.
