September Morn

Lovely morning light streams in on a beautiful September morning. 

I love the light this time of year - diffused, golden, softly focused. 

Light spills across my early harvest....

Tansy in the basket....

And roses.....

Sweet, sweet roses.....

Captured memories. 

Morning light floods the room as I make the bed 
and prepare for the day. 

The promise of a beautiful day. 

I take a peek outside....

The day awaits. 

Fallen leaves carpet my morning walk. 

Golden light illuminates the forest -

Already showing signs of Autumn. 

Nature's designs are always beautiful. 

Treetops glow in the morning light.

September's golden wand leaves a magical touch. 

Dappled sunlight. 

Sweet illuminations....

Cast enchanting shadows.

Gossamer rays to lead me home.

With one last glance behind me. 


The Autumn

Go, sit upon a lofty hill,
And turn your eyes around,
Where waving woods and waters wild
Do Hymn an autumn sound,
The summer sun is faint on them -
The summer flowers depart -
Sit still - as all transformed to stone,
Except your musing heart. 

-Elizabeth Barrett Browning-


Wishing you beautiful, golden September mornings
Dear Friends. 



  1. Those are gorgeous pictures! I LOVE the way the light comes through your windows. What a great idea to use a clothes rack for drying flowers. I have NEVER thought to dry tansy-although I think my blooms are gone already.

    Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

  2. Hi, Karen! It has been in the low fifties here today and rainy...but it's reminding me that my favorite time of year is coming soon. I love Fall! Enjoyed your pics and the lovely walk today!


  3. Hi Karen, the light is really marvellous in your photos ... the brisk fall freshness is all around! Those roses are so pretty, and the leaves becoming yello and orange .... Enjoy the change in season!

  4. beautiful light and beautiful place. i like your drying rack of flowers. :)

  5. Dear Karen, I like all your posts, but this one is just special somehow.
    Big breath in and out. Thank you. xo, m & jb

  6. Such a beautiful post. September mornings are golden aren't they? Thank you for the early morning walk.

  7. Your tree tops are gorgeous Karen! And so is your is such a beautiful space!!! And the roses you are drying are just too pretty for words...I can not wait to see where you put those! Here is to a wonderful September to you and your crew! May it bring all good things to you all! Nicole xoxo

  8. nice photos of your september morn. It is cooler in the mornings and evenings now, here in Oregon. I like that, makes the days feel less hot. I've seen fall color here and there as well. Will miss the flowers. Thus the reason for my blog post today about flowers! Take care!

  9. What a beautiful look at your morning! Hasn't it been a wonderful month in our part of the world? The brilliant days - cloudless, blue skies and high temperatures - and the full moon at night have made for a memorable week. I love that last shot of the heart-shaped leaf. Worth framing!

  10. Dearest Karen,
    You are blessed for having that many roses from your garden for filling up a drying rack!
    Sounds almost like a poem but it is a lovely season, like spring.
    Enjoy it and have a lovely weekend.

  13. Such beauty in this post Karen! There are few things as beautiful as a September morn' :)

  14. These images are so beautiful. The roses drying on the racks ... wedding roses? A perfect way to keep the memories. You have an amazing area to take your morning walks. I can almost feel the crispness in the air through this post. There are only a few leaves making the change here, but not long now ... Enjoy your weekend. Wendy x

    1. Thank you for visiting, Dear Wendy. Yes, the flowers are from the wedding... I hope to craft something special for the bride. Hope you have a lovely week. Hugs xo Karen

  15. Aaahh...what a beautiful and perfect looking day! And there is something supremely romantic about flowers drying in that way.
    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend. ;)

  16. September, the best of all months! Your photos are lovely showing the interesting shadows that this month brings along with the golden colours beginning for autumn. Your photo of the fern shadow on the rock is so lovely. Your roses made me smile too, as I looked across my room at your pot pourri package!! Have a beautiful, colourful weekend my lovely xx

  18. How beautiful, Karen! I have never thought of using a laundry rack to dry flowers...genius! Of course, I sold now I need to find another lol.

  19. Just beautiful, Karen.
    Your photos cause me to relax quietly in the evening hours as I come to the end of the day. Some how, I find myself drawn to your beautiful space in the evenings.
    The light through your window and coverings is so peaceful. Thank you for sharing it with us.
    Beautiful as always, Debbie

  20. Dearest Karen,
    Wishing you a lovely wedding anniversary...

    1. My Dear Mariette, how do your remember such sweet things? You are so wonderful. Forty Two years now....the time went by in a flash. Thank you for your kindness. Hugs xo Karen

  21. Gorgeous Indian-summer morning! September's golden wand....I love that! Beautiful photos. It looks so peaceful, in your early morning home, and your early morning yard. And I LOVE your drying flowers!

    We are doing a fundraiser's going to be a long day, but an exciting one, and a very satisfying one. It is for a young couple who attend our church, whose baby son has Spinal Muscular Atrophy. They have been in and out of the hospital with him, most recently to have a feeding tube placed, in his first year of life. He cannot even push his head up off the bed. They also have a little one who is very energetic, and will turn 3 next month. When I found out their insurance would no longer cover a night nurse for the baby, I knew we had to do a fundraiser to try to help. I'll post about it and tell everyone how it goes. I'm looking forward to this, but I also worry about sitting for six hours at the silent auction table. My back doesn't handle that well! :-) Say a prayer for me this afternoon, if you will.

    1. Dear Marie - you are an angel <3 I will pray for this sweet child and his devoted family, and also for your poor back. A little suffering for a worthy cause. Kisses and hugs xo Karen

  22. Very beautiful post. You have such lovely lighting in your house (ours is horrible) and the dried roses look so pretty. I really enjoyed those outdoor shots, especially the tall trees and the shadow of the fern.

  23. Oh Karen, what a wonderful Autumn post. I am enchanted with the surroundings of your home, it is so beautiful. And that heart-shaped leaf is so sweet. I love the change of the leaves and the cooler weather and all the pumpkin goodies during this time, and it is my very favorite of all the seasons. I loved seeing the whites in your rooms because I am going to decorate my bedroom soon, and I wanted to go with splashes of white. Those cloth roses in the vase - are those from the wedding?

    Happy Autumn, Karen, and thank you for letting me see some of Autumn in your world.


    1. Dear Sheri, Thank you for your sweet visit - autumn is also my favorite time of year! To answer your question - yes, the roses are from the wedding. I would like to create a sweet keepsake for the bride, as her birthday will be in a couple of months. I will share when I am done. Wishing you a beautiful week. Hugs xo Karen

  24. So beautiful Karen! The autumn light is wonderful, and you have captured it beautifully. I love how you've saved the wedding flowers. They look so pretty drying on your wooden rack.


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are important to me and are very much appreciated. xx Karen
