Monday Love: Beautiful autumn

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.  
Albert Camus

 We had such a warm and sunny start into November! These pix are from a visit at my painter friends house and i love the mix of flowers, fruit and colored leaves, of fresh things and faded things, all beautifuly woven together by golden rays of november sun. Have a grape - and a sweet and lovely start to your week!

  9. Guten Abend liebe Martina, your pictures are all very beautiful. The first one is my favorite, I think.. Ah well, I do not have to choose, I can enjoy them all.
    I must get back to blog land a little more, I am on fb. That is so much faster. But I miss blog land, have to find a way to enjoy them both.
