Just thought I’d pop by to share a little Autumn love with you. Hope you are enjoying this glorious season. xo

Autumn Leaves by Juliana Horatia Ewing

The Spring’s bright tints no more are seen,

And Summer’s ample robe of green

Is russet-gold and brown;

When flowers fall to every breeze

And, shed reluctant from the trees,

The leaves drop down.

A sadness steals about the heart,

— and is it thus from youth we part,

And life’s redundant prime?

Must friends like flowers fade away,

And life like Nature know decay,

And bow to time?

And yet such sadness meets rebuke,

From every copse in every nook

Where Autumn’s colors glow;

How bright the sky! How full the sheaves!

What mellow glories gild the leaves

Before they go.

Then let us sing the jocund praise,

In this bright air, of these bright days,

When years of our friendships crown;

The love that’s loveliest when ’tis old–

When tender tints have turned to gold

And leaves drop down.

  1. This collage is just lovely, Carol. The overall composition is wonderful — the eye flows from one beautiful image to the next. Wishing you a great weekend.

    This is really beautiful, Carol! It is inspiring me to get back to my Round Trip lessons which I abandoned shortly before Oasis and haven’t gotten back to yet. But you can be sure that, after seeing this, I definitely will!

  4. Looks like you go it to me, looks REAL PRETTY. I agree though still not sure I have the hang of it.

  5. This is a wonderful mosaic, Carol. And your poetry so tender. Very nice. ;->

  6. Oops … just realized that was not your poem … so apt, though. Nice paring with your mosaic.

    Beautifully done, Carol! Such a treat to visit you. I’m doing Round Trip now and am looking forward to learning how to do collages after seeing your stunning work.

  11. Radish says:

    Nice collage with a wonderful mix. Your garden still looks great. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Gorgeous autumn leaves AND a poem! I’m telling you, this poetry thing is taking off! Very nice….I look at my yard clean-up (not happening) – but why bother? The pineapple sage FINALLY bloomed & the hummingbird visits daily. Amazing. I want to leave him a little sweater…

    Hello Carol
    It’s been a long time since I had the “time” to visit blogs, or even write something for my own. I hope change is on it’s way now.
    I popped in to let you know how I love your images and your blog is such a peaceful haven. That autumn collage is just fabulous!

    But I have a question too.
    I remember that some time ago you posted an article about how you made a water feature yourself, but I can’t seem to find it now. I would like to have a very small one in-house, in my new room ;). The sound of water always calms me down. Unfortunately something like that is not for sale over here apparently.
    Could you please send me the link to that “manual” ?

    Thanks in advance! See you for sure on IG but I hope to visit your blog more regularly now.
