Sunday Stroll Invitation

"The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." ~ Marcel Proust

After so many weeks of strolling on Sunday, one might suspect that there is nothing new for me to see. Somehow, that is never true in the garden. A few short months ago, I was seeking signs of spring... waiting for the first blooms. Now, I am seeing the early signs that autumn is just around the corner. It is the same garden, but it is both familiar and new each time I walk there.

If you have time this week for a Sunday Stroll, please post about about it on your blog and then come back here with a comment and a link to your post. You may use the Sunday Stroll button at the top of this post on your post or side bar if you would like. I will add participant names to this post so other strollers can walk through your garden too. I'll check back often and try to keep the list updated.

Look who's strolling:

Abbie at Farmer's Daughter

Ruth at Everyday Woman

Margaret at Periodic Pearls

Diana at My Quiet Place in the Country

Amy at Embracing Change

Joyce at Tall Grass Worship

Me, here at The Quiet Country House

Nan at Letters from a Hill Farm



Abbie said...

Hello Aisling. I've noticed the same thing; we're clearly in transition. My stroll photos are up after I took last week off!

Everydaywoman said...

I did take the time to stroll on the farm early this am and, like Abbie and you, I'm noticing the first signs of fall, ready or not. It's so much fun to see what the first signs of autumn look like in different places!

Margaret Evans Porter said...

Strolling here, too!

Diana said...

Yes Aisling, this is the beginning of my favorite season. Warm days and cool nights. I still find this is a great time for some long awaited blooms or second time around blooming for some plants.
Check out my Sunday stroll collage.

Hi, Aisling-my signs of autumn are actually sounds. I did go strolling today, and I heard them!

Hi, Aisling! I'm a little late posting, but I made it out for a stroll today with my daughter. Happy Sunday!

Isn't it neat how we all seem to be spotting the first signs of fall?

Hey Aisling - I just posted my stroll:
