Autumn Arrives Gently~~Morning Until Evening

(I am still somewhat limited in my ability to walk and wander.....all was gathered from within a  dozen or so yards of the house and studio.
 Surprising....there is still a lot to see.....
and no words necessary.  Enjoy.)

Linda Moran said...

Gorgeous way to start the day! Have a great one!!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

You too Linda---I hope you get some relief from the desert heat soon....and sending you lovely Fall colors and thoughts thru the blog!


Ces said...

Good morning! These are lovely. I especially love the sky. Hope you have a bright and sunny day! Tsup!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Ces,

I was just thinking of you!!! (And it was good too! heehee!)
Actually, it feels like we could get some rain today---hope the farmers can get crops in before the Fall rains start.

Good Morning Anne Sweetie...
Oh my gosh, I love the spider web, how exquisite it is. Think of the love and time that went into spinning that just for you. LOVE it.

That pod is interesting, and I do love that photo. I also love the leaf, starting to change and prepare for a winter rest.

Still hot here. Triple temps and no relief in site. Was 92 on the porch at 4am when I awoke. Climbing already. Will we ever see cooler temps this year?

I hope your foot is mending and you will be out and about soon. Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Sherry,

The spiderweb was swinging back and forth in the breeze----it took FOR EVER to get a shot that it could be seen. It is odd how our *eye* sees things one way and the camera doesn't.
The swirl seedpod is from a bush clematis, which has a purple bell shaped flower. They don't climb---mine sort of flops! ;D


Robin said...

Happy Autumn Anne! I am glad you are feeling better and can get about a little. STUNNING photos....really....they capture the changing seasons perfectly.

I saw Lo's fantastic painting of "St. Peter with the Acorn"...(wonderful name for him)... and I can imagine how he will add even more beauty to your home!

Autumnal Hugs,

♥ Robin ♥

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Robin,

Yes, St. Pete is very happy in his new home---looking rather *regal* I should add!
That sunrise was one of those *waddle and get the camera quick* things---everything else were shots I had time to frame and capture.
But I chase the skies... :)


studio lolo said...

Another series of lovely shots!
I'm glad you were able to hobble about to capture these ;)

I love the rose hip. Something so small and simple yet stunning.

I took some photos of one of resident spiders a couple of weeks ago. I need to post them soon. Of course every day I walked past her I referred to her as Charlotte. How original of me!

have a good one Anne. Off to clean for unexpected guests!


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Lolo,

Charlotte is a good name! ;) Loved that book......
I have the dangdest time shooting webs with my camera; the auto-focus only occasionally *sees* them. This is when I am wishing for a manual focus. Amazing things, they are.
I would say have fun cleaning but I don't want a mop propelled at me like a javelin! LOL!!!


Deborah said...

Glorious!!! What a way to welcome the day. Now you stay out of harms way, which in your case could be stairs, holes, or small objects to trip on. **kisskiss** Deb

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...


Or thread on the floor, or a dust bunny, or, or, or,.....hee hee!!!
Life at Anne's! ;D
But Deb, I haven't lost my sense of humor.


Bella Sinclair said...

Gorgeosity! What a beautiful display of nature at your doorstep, and fantastic photos! Oh my, look at those skies. And such a fat little rose hip. But I think my favorite has to be that glistening spiderweb. Amazing, no?

Tik Tok! YES! Oh yes! I didn't think of him before, but yes, I DO remember him. I loved reading the whole series.


Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Bella,

I was wondering if I was the only one who had read past "The Wizard of Oz"....gladly, not!
I love spiderwebs; they are so hard to capture but once in a while....I am lucky! ;)
And that is my LONE rosehip! LOL!


Karen S said...

Nice pics -- that's what I did this morning too. My sky did not cooperate as well as yours.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Karen,

I had to get out there REALLY FAST. I think I was able to burn off four shots and was lucky with the second.
I need a sticker that says "Kamakazi Camera: MOVE! I'm Shooting!" ;D


audrey said...

Gorgeous photos, Anne.
I LOVE the rose hip!!
Happy Autumn!!
♥ audrey

Robbie said...

i just took a trip down 'the lane' and didn't leave the couch! Thanks, Anne! Great pics!

yoborobo said...

So beautiful, Anne. :) I love your photos. You have quite an eye, and a talent to match. xox!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Thanks Girls!

I am off to put the *flock* to nite-nite now....hopefully there will be 3 cooperative birds.
But they are kind of like kids. ;)
Have a beautiful photo to post hopefully tomorrow, from this evenings short yard ramble.


Silke said...

Goooooorgeous!! Those photos truly feel like fall. I can see it here, too, just not feel it yet. Still so warm and humid... But maybe next week. There's hope!! Love, Silke
