Fall Window Box

img_1908-400.jpg

I really enjoy the effort that people go to in order to have a nice seasonal windowbox display.

In a comment to my October 15 post, Turning a New Leaf, Kate of Visual St. Paul said: “Despite the beauty, I reluctantly enjoy autumn because I know that the blast of winter follows it.”

I enjoy autumn completely. I like the cooler temperatures, I love the colors. I like the whole harvest theme and the pumpkins, which then become pumpkin pie. I like the smell of smoke from chimneys. I like Halloween. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it is all about family and counting your blessings, and it lacks the crass commercialism that Christmas has become. The fall is like getting ready to go to bed but just staying up in your jammies a while longer.

I don’t think about winter until it’s winter. I remember a phrase from a lesson long ago: “be here now.”

    voila un balcon original, d’habitude on y met des fleurs, des petits arbres, mais rarement un elevage de potiron. bravo pour la photo.

    veiled an original balcony, usually one puts at it flowers, small trees, but seldom a breeding of pumpkin. cheer for the photograph.

    Love your thoughts on why fall is so wonderful. I agree 100% and also have come to love Thanksgiving the best of all holidays.

    Those are lovely sentiments, MarieMcc. I try to remember to BE HERE NOW, as Baba Ram Dass advised so many years ago. Sometimes I forget but then I’ll get a reminder, such as this one from you. Thank you. Annie

    Anything which someone puts effort and thought into and then shares with others is to be applauded. Sort of like your DP blog … It is also very interesting to see what people can do with small spaces … Personally I enjoy Fall and Spring the best. Then Winter and lastly Summer.
