You are definitely a little further along than we are - leaves are still shedding here. But that could change in a day!


I really like your winter photo. Leaves have just changed colors this past week or so here in my part of Texas, a few of the "early shedders" are dropping their leaves, but we still have a ways to go before autumn is over here.


Our street is about 3/4 of the way to looking like your photo. We have HUGE piles of leaves along the edge of the street waiting for the town to pick them up. But there are still some leaves on many of the trees. Usually they don't all fall until after our Thanksgiving (next Thursday), and frequently there's snow before we get them all raked and to the street. I'm not a fan of bare trees. I've decided it's the lack of foliage for 4 1/2 months a year that depresses me about winter here. I can tolerate the cold and snow, but it's just so bleak without the leaves on the trees.

My morning walks still feel autumnal and there are still trees with golden leaves on them. Mind you, i've skipped it this morning. Couldn't quite bring myself to go out in this blustery, wet, cold weather. Hopefully this afternoon will be nicer. Lovely photograph of the country lane. Still has a warmth to it, with the orange colours :) Px


I like your filing system Alexa it fits your neat clean style.As to the weather it has turned really cold here in Northamptonshire with thick heavy morning frosts. I like it as long as it is not raining. I love going out for walks along the glistening paths.


A place for everything and everything in its place.

It is blowing a gale here today!


Some very stylish organising. Great tip with the little tied on labels. It's kind of damp, grey and miserable here today very different from yesterday which was bright and crisp but I suppose that's the great British weather for you.


Hardly any leaves left on the trees here, they've all blown away in the wind (there must be a song title in there somewhere!)
I like your filing system, I use something similar but was too lazy to make my own & settled for 12 x 12 Cropper Hopper Paper Holders instead :) Yours is prettier!!


The photo is so evocative Alexa, I feel as though I am walking down the lane!
