Happy, happy Monday everyone... :)
I am completely in love with this wee collection of images from our fabulous Flickr pool 'all colours in'. They perfectly capture this sense of transition I'm feeling today. It's getting a wee bit nippy here in Edinburgh lately and the air has a crisp freshness about it. One or two leaves are beginning to turn and the autumn is almost upon us. I am looking forward to it. I love my scarves and chunky cardigans and I love making lots of yummy soups with all the new season veg, not to mention all the apples and plums for making delicious crumbles... but at the same time I'm feeling just a wee bit wistful for warm sunny days and picnics... *sigh*

Emma, x

  1. This grouping of colorful photos really tripped my trigger this morning. I especially love the last one with the baskets of fruit. So luscious.

    It was really chilly in the house this morning and, oh! I loved it. I'm a winter girl, and autumn is a lovely vehicle to get me there.

  2. These are splendid and lovely photos - brightens my day! :-)

  3. 'Wistful' is a good description of how I feel too Emma.
    It was definitely chilly here last night. Strangely though there is a tiny bit of me looking forward to all those things you mentioned too!

  6. Lovely images, and a beautiful description of the feeling as autumn approaches - looking forward to lots of cosy things about it yet wistful that summer is really going...
