Fruits of the Season [Home and Garden Update]

The Fall Season has started and heavy rains have rushed over the lands. But in the middle of all that havoc and rain storms, nature is actually still blooming. We have been waiting for a long time for the tangerines to ripen in our orchard. And the first signs of ripening have showed up!

The tangerines have started to get their familiar orange color.



Some are still green, with signs of promise.


The flowers in our garden are still in bloom.


Some of them are even coming into bloom!



When life gives you a rainy day, play in the puddles...


And if you need some help to brighten up the gray days...

  8. Pretty flowers! I don't mind rainy gray days. We've had such an unseasonably hot, dry summer around here, I'm more than ready for the fall and winter rains.

  14. Ach, so graue Tage können auch was haben. Gerade wo ihr es auch so schön im Haus habt...gemütlich machen und in eine Decke einkuscheln ;-))

    Schaut bei euch aber auch noch sehr schön mit den ganzen Blüten aus, noch gar nicht so herbstlich.

    Herzliche Abendgrüssle

    1. Bis der richtige Herbst einkehr dauert es bestimmt noch ein Paar Wochen, aber in den Genuss der Mandarine sind wir denn noch etwas später gekommen.

  16. So schöne Bilder, wie immer Mersad! Zitrusfrüchte machen auf Bildern ja immer direkt gute Laune und Sommerstimmung auch wenn ja drumherum Herbst ist. Irgendwie gut ;.)! GlG Anne

  26. HI Mersad I love that saying, 'When life gives you a rainy day, play in the puddles'. I looked at the tutorial and although I do not know a lot about photoshop (yet) you seem to explain things very easily. I also then saw you had more tutorials so thanks you for all that hard work you put into them for others to improve. I certainly will be looking at them and trying to learn more. Love this post wit the fruit and blossom. Thanks for comment on my blog today.
