What a lovely weekend we had!


We had a surprise weekend as far as weather was concerned. It was beautiful! Perfect for spending time outdoors! The leaves were dry enough to burn at the back of our yard so we spent some time playing and burning the leaves and enjoying the day!

The late day light was amazing!

All of these leaves were burnt by the end of the afternoon plus a zillion more!

Don't you love the smell of burning leaves in the fall?

A willing helper, our 8 year old grandaughter Kiera. What kid doesn't love a fire!

Ladybug, ladybug....fly away home........we found lots of them nestled under leaves in the garden. We rescued them of course from the fire!

The day wouldn't be complete without a climb up on the little barn roof to sit and enjoy the view and the wonderful weather.
Have a great day everyone! Today looks to be as lovely as the weekend so I'm going to enjoy it! Snow will be here too soon!

That sounds like such a wonderful day, I would love to burn leaves & smell the sweet smoke. Unfortunately here, we aren't allowed due to forest fires...but I enjoy your post & your super pictures, as always. So glad to back!!! :)

Hi Lucy:
I remember burning leaves as a child in Central California but in the urban concrete jungles of Southern California it is not done. Yes, the smell is wonderfully intoxicating. The smell of Fall.
I came to say "hi" from Carol Anne's Boutique blog.
Hi : )
I am going to follow you and get to know you too.
peace
