Looking back on Summer

A little look back at a summer trip to California.
Gamble Gardens, Palo Alto.

Autumn is upon us in Oregon, leaves are changing,
the chill has set in, the Juncos in the yard are busy eating
seeds and fattening up for the long winter ahead.
It feels like it's time to cozy up with tea, a wool blanket,
and a good book.  Any reading recommendations?


  1. There's a little something waiting for you at my blog. This is my first visit here...and what a sweet surprise to see our mutual love for birds. What was even more shocking was to look at the caption of the above photo... I knew every inch of Gamble Gardens long ago. I could walk to it from my house! talk to you soon...

  2. Hi, I dropped over from Maya Made. I am a little bit in love with birds too. I thought I would give you a book suggestion - I just finished reading a thoroughly delightful book called 'The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society' by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.


Thanks for commenting. I love to read them!
