Pretty leaves, pumpkins and two houses

Hello new week! My apologies for not posting ...... I finally had to succumb to work and let go of blogging for a couple of weeks but had a chance to stop and enjoy what was going on around me ..... the gorgeous colours in the trees are amazing!!! Here in Vancouver, we have had the most beautiful weather, a perfect recipe for bright beautiful leaves . Autumn Tracey Ayton Photography

We also took a drive over to Westhelm Island Herb Farm over in Ladner to pick out our pumpkins. The bridge to get over there was only a one lane swing bridge made in 1910.

A few of my photos made it into the Province AND the Globe And Mail this past weekend for an article about two lovely Tudor homes on the west side that are slated for demolition. These houses really tug at my heart and hopefully this article will help spread the word about what is happening to our heritage homes.

Tom Hobbs & Brent Beattie's condo featured in Style At Home

I had the pleasure of getting to know Tom Hobbs over the past few years as he owns a magnificent nursery called Southlands that I visit quite frequently. Tom and his partner of 30 years, Brent Beattie own a fabulous condo over looking Van Dusen Gardens which is quite fitting the fact that Tom is a passionate gardener.  Their home in the city boasts the most amazing color palette that includes subdued blues, deep purples and yummy avocado greens.  Tom's sense of humor is reflected throughout the home with whimsical collectables including .... yup, you guessed it, garden gnomes.  If you haven't already picked up a copy of the latest issue of Style At Home, I highly recommend it as there are so many ideas for outdoor living.  Have a fantastic week!

Pumpkins???

Well hello, is everyone that lives in Vancouver enjoying this brilliant weather?? I keep imagining that we are only in the middle of July and won't be seeing winter come anytime soon. However, mother nature is still on route and it certainly showed when I walked passed this amazing stone wall that had pumpkins growing all down it. CRAZY!!!!! I just had to share.
