As Summer ends next week - We say goodbye to our beautiful Summer greens for another year

As many of you in the United States and Europe head into the warmer seasons of the year,
we here in the Australia are heading towards Autumn. 
As you may know, I'm out photographing gardens
and homes most days and I am especially noticing the changes
in our wonderful shady trees that are changing right now.
I am actually going up in a cherry picker (a huge crane)
this afternoon to take some long distance and high shots
and I'm feeling a little nervous as I don't like heights. 
Wish me luck, I hope I don't shake too much with the camera.

So I decided this morning that I would celebrate the
 wonderful colour green,
ever changing green gardens, fabulous green glassware and china,
 green vintage paintings, green interiors,
and just the sheer inspiration
that we get from the colour green.

Happy Tablescape Thursday, thanks for dropping by and I wish you all a wonderful day,
xx Coty

and below ......a sneak peak at my setting for next week,
I finished it last night at sunset,
I wanted to do it today, but I still have some editing to do,
please drop back, it's very romantic and I'm sure you will love it.

  1. Your green study of photos is extraordinary. I love the shots, each and every one and find myself drawn in. I can't wait to see the gorgeous setting you have for us next week. The cherub is enough to send me spinning!

  2. Big wow! Boy I love the green perfect that would be for St. Patrick's Day! I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea that you are just heading in to the fall season! I'm counting the days until spring and ready to shed the winter! I know what a cherry picker is since I live in a community that built itself up on the cherry industry!

  10. As a true Summer lover I'm wiping away my tears at the moment Coty! We've only had one day over 40C., so it seems Summer has forgotten us this year. All your green glass pieces are just lovely!
