Orange/Warmth [Nurture Photography]

The rain has been splattering at our windows for the better part of the week. I made the mistake of leaving the windows open when I left to run some errands on Wednesday, the sun had been shining when I left and I came back to rain and a floor that needed to be mopped. There has been a strong wind most days that has been blowing leaves from branches, a few ending up on our back porch.

It’s been difficult to evoke feelings of warmth in weather like this, I’m not quite ready for scarves and gloves just yet, I was hoping we had a few more weeks left of that deliciously cool, bright Autumn weather. I thought we still had time to go on walks and play in fallen leaves.

After Wednesday’s wet floor incident, we’ve been keeping all of the windows firmly closed. It seems as though there’s nothing to be done other than to hide indoors with tea and blankets, to hope that we’ll at least have a few more days of sunshine before Winter settles in for good.

Head on over to Live and Love Out Loud today for some Tips on Conveying Warmth in your Photos.

    • Thanks Gina! We have a little respite in the rain today so I am enjoy a little sunshine for a change 🙂

  1. You certainly did do an amazing job conveying warmth in these photos Rebecca!! I am currently cuddled up in a warm blanket but now need to go grab a cup of tea! 🙂 Gorgeous photos. I love each one as much as the next.

    Gorgeous photos! I had the same open window fear when we got a downpour last night. It’s always a shame when the windows have to stay closed!

    • It IS a shame, I like to have some air in the house. We live in a vintage apartment so it’s prone to getting a little musty in here sometimes. Always good to get a little fresh air, at least when the rain isn’t coming in too!

    • Mikey has been collecting them all week, we have got such a lovely array of coloured leaves in the house at the moment!

  3. Rebecca,
    I hope you get some sunny days before winter sets in. I am not ready for cold icky weather either. It was a beautiful 25* this morning. Beautiful because there was no wind. The last two days we have had constant 60-75 mph winds. The radio said some places had 81 mph gusts.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

    • We have some beautiful sunshine today and no wind, so I’m hoping that it will be nice enough for us to be able to get outside for a while!

      Have a great weekend Robyn 🙂

    • Thanks Tezzie, Mikey is quite taken with mini pumpkins this year so we’ve been collecting them whenever we see them in the store or at the farmer’s market 🙂

    • Oh me too. I’m quite the tea person, I brought back a lot of tea when I visited my family in England this summer and I’ll be very sad when it’s all gone! Extra comforting to have tea from “home”.
