Autumn in the Garden

My days have been very busy lately and I haven't spent much time in the garden. Today I finally had the chance to relax in the garden and take a few photos.

On the garden path.

A view of the garden from above.

A dahlia looking very lovely.
I love all the layers of color this time of year.

Looking over the house.

A Look at the Library

I choose to call my front room the library. It's a modestly proportioned room with a built- in bookcase and a fireplace for chilly nights.

I helped our contractor install the woodwork and paint the room-it was a major undertaking.
My dogs, Birdie & Nutkin, are sitting on the oxblood leather chair.

There is my beloved Ernest mounted above the fireplace. I found him at an antique store and instantly fell in love.

                                     The built-in bookcase is my favorite feature in the room.

The woodwork covers the walls and ceiling.
