A lovely Day

I love the cool, clear mornings we're having followed by sunny afternoons that are too hot to be outside doing much,  but it cools off again in the evening so the house is not as unbearably hot as it has been.  I had a nice walk, remembered to take my camera but there wasn't a lot to take pictures of. I did come upon this 1956 Chevy Bel Air parked on the street not far from the park. I'm glad I stopped to take pics because when I came back it was gone.

The only other picture I took was of this Magnolia leaf which for some reason has already changed colour. After I took the picture I picked it off the shrub it had fallen onto and brought it home. I am pressing it in the phone book where I press countless leaves every Fall. Can't resist bringing home handfuls from my walks.

That was my rather uneventful day ( I was going to put 'boring' but it really has been a very relaxing day).  I hope you have had a pleasant one as well.

  1. The small changing leaf thrills me! I do love summer but fall is my favorite. The car is snazzy!

  2. Yes...relaxing is a much better word. ;)
    That is a sweet little car!
    Have a great evening!

  3. That is quite the car. Quite the driver too, with one wheel on the sidewalk! We all need relaxing days now and again.

  4. Great photo of the Chevy. I've noticed a number of leaves already changing colour and falling off the trees here too. I guess they are stressed from the lack of rain we all have had. Have a great day!

  5. Hi! So nice that you could have a nice relaxing day! What do you do with all the leaves you press? Anything special? Nancy

    1. One of the things I've used the pressed leaves for is in an altered book I made using a copy of The Country Diary's "Garden Notes". Of course this didn't use all of them. I find them in almost every book I own, put there in some cases a decade ago.
