What Happens When I Start The Day with Pinterest

When I start my day with Pinterest, I want to go outside and take pictures. I am drawn to the colors of these Hydrangeas.I love the brown with the maroon. I would love a dress of these colors. I love the colors of the leaves on the bush as it prepares for its long winter nap.

I love the colors in fall. Muted and yet vibrant. It draws the eye to see shades of red, pink and purple.
These are very purple blooms in the spring. I love how it changes to this color in the fall.

These are called ground Camellias. I am not a fan. In the summer when I am working in the flowerbeds they try to poke out my eyes. The only reason they are still in my flowerbeds are because my husband it going to make them into Bonsai. So they have that reprieve. They do look pretty this year though.

My walking partners. No chicken walking with us this morning though. They have to stay penned up now. To many hungry predictors around. I have a hungry hawk that sits on the fence now and watches.He scolds me as I walk out side and every time he sees me. We are not friends.

Not as pretty as the sugar maple that was here but still very nice to take pictures of this morning. I love that those couple days of frost, paints the trees with color. The sky becomes so blue.

Then the colors become the carpet beneath my feet. I do love the colors of November. I am so glad that this morning I took the time to go for a walk and to see the beauty of a normal day around me.
Now I must start baking and assembling all of the things that I need to get done today.

Have a lovely day,

Me, too! I had to write everything on the kitchen white board so I don't forget the plan! The carpet of leaves is so gorgeous, Kim! I like your walking partners. They are cute!
How are the chickens laying these days?
Happy Thanksgiving, good pilgrim!

Meg said...

Yeah, I saw all the stuff you pinned this morning... Not helping my withdrawal problems! ;) Your pictures are so pretty. I like the brown and purple of the hydrangeas too.

Time to get busy with the Thanksgiving meal. I have been invited out so I don't have to cook anything. Enjoy being with family.

Beautiful pictures.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Love your beautiful Hydrangeas. They are so lovely when they change colors in the fall. They look lovely in dry flower arrangements.

I've checked Pinterest once in a while from people's blogs but I never dared subscribe to it as I know that I would spend too much time there. I'm beginning to think that it's competing with blogging as there seems to be less of my followers blogging that there used to be.

I love walking in a colorful carpet of fallen leaves.

Kim said...

Thank you for taking us on the pretty walk with you. Hmm I haven't been on Pinterest for awhile. I better go check out your pins :)

Dear Friend, quickly popping in to wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving Day tomorrow. I'm still in the kitchen making pies! Will catch up with my blog reading this weekend. Blessings, your friend from Maine, Julie.

You have encouraged me to get out for a walk today. I'll have a couple of my grands here with me, and I think they'll make wonderful walking partners. ;-)

Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving!! I'm thankful for my blogging friends - and of course that includes YOU!!
