SUMMER'S SLOWLY FADING AWAY...

Whether we want it or not, summer is fading away and fall is starting to install itself within our life...

Although, it can still be quite sunny and warm, certain signs don't lie. Dusk comes earlier every evening, the sunlight has this special golden-red touch, mist is starting to lick our mountain tops and hover over the rivers and landscapes, rain starts to fall a little more, the trees are turning red, most birds have migrated away from our latitudes, apples, plums and pumpkins are invading our market stalls and we are more and more craving comfort food!

Enjoy some of the last pictures (click on the pictures to enlarge) depicting Veyrier in the late summer.

  1. LAst week it was summer here in Toronto but this week there's no doubt that fall has arrived. All of a sudden I"m roasting chicken and not grilling it - such a difference!

  2. Depuis un mois il pleut en région parisienne. Il faut se résignier, l'automne s'installe définitivement.

  18. Lovely photos Rosa! You have beautiful countryside ... so different from ours. It is nice to get a view of your world.

    We had our first frost this morning ... ice on the bird bath. I covered some of my garden things so I hope they survived okay. The trees will really start to turn now.
