a lovely visit.......

Autumn is surely paying us a lovely visit.  The leaves are falling so beautiful and golden.  The breezes are crisp and cool.  The mornings are comfortable and quiet.  Autumn is certainly something special, don't you think.  Honey took this photo of our neighbor's steps before she cleared them away. Her yard is grand and beautiful with the loveliest flowers and trees with her weeping willow tree being my favorite. 

House in the leaves.:o)  This is one beautiful home.  Our neighborhood is full of history and beautiful old homes.  Our local nursery is celebrating its 100th birthday!  It seems that the autumn leaves give these old homes a fairy tale feel. 

Salon Bella as well as the other shops are all dressed up for Halloween.  When possible I must take a photo of all the shops in this block, they are amazing!

Love this little bench.  It sits right out front of Salon Bella.  I keep promising myself a lovely bench just like this one.:o)   The little orange lights in the trees are certainly a sweet touch.  Continue to enjoy a lovely autumn my friends.

Old houses are beautiful because people lived and loved in them and also they are a symbol of the continuity of humanity. Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures. Automn through your eyes is very romantic!

What a beautiful tribute to autumn, Beverly.
I like very much the old fashioned house in the leaves: intriguing and romantic in the same time.

Oh what love photos. Your friend has a lovely entrance indeed. Those sweet autumn leaves..I would have left them on the steps..lol!

I can just imagine how darling the store fronts must be this time of year all decorated and lit up so nicely.

The leaves are falling fast now and we had strong winds earlier this week that brought many of them down. I love this time of year though, especially the soft light.

Enjoy your weekend Beverly,

Well, hello my sweet friend, I do hope all is good with you.
It has been awhile since we visited ...Blogland is so HUGE..I stay lost half the time.

I love your pretty neighborhood. Ours is pitiful....not old enuf nor pretty enuf houses to be interesting...just plain vanilla, 1957 tract houses..every one just about like the other.

Have a beautiful evening,
xo bj

What gorgeous photos Beverly! Your neighborhood is indeed beautiful. My new town has wonderful old houses but it's too rainy right now for me to shoot them! Maybe by the spring!!

I love the photo of the leaves on the steps! It certainly does evoke Autumn and all its beauty- which is why it's my favorite season now.

Beverly, I've been a stranger, haven't I? But I could never forget such a dear friend like you! Had to stop by and say hello. We have so much to look forward to with the Holidays just around the corner. Looking forward to your next post. Hugs!
