Mother Nature’s time to relax

Filed Under Outdoor Wednesday | 33 comments

Fall Entrance RS

Does this photo look familiar? Hopefully it should —  my header?? 😉

Yes, this is the same spot I love to visit and walk– only this visit was in  Autumn this year.


I think of Mother Nature like I would any typical contemporary woman– she has tons on her plate.


Front Summer RS

In Summer there is pressure here for sure— there is much expected  and she wants to  look her best.

Break out the best dress!  The colorful eye shadows and of course just the right touch of blush in the cheeks.

Bridge RS

Or it’s like putting on the best for your family or boss — nothing goes unnoticed, every detail is perfection.

MR P summer dressing RS

Even Mrs. MR. P… (you remember her  Him don’t you?) As you can see I had my late night Brain Freeze and thanks to commenters I have corrected my gender error 🙂 

Then there’s Autumn… or FALL…

Mother Nature worked hard all summer long (ran the kids to every summer camp and picnic possible) so she needs a much needed rest.

 She was the first NATURAL BEAUTY– only with out her make up on. Still gorgeous with out all the trappings.

Fountain view RS

She is excited to have the days shorter so she can kick off the high heels and put on her Tennies!

Fall Bridge RS

She can relax and curl up in her jammies and read a good book… even cook some comfort food.


And she doesn’t have to ask ANYONE– if her butt looks fat in these jeans!  (well, if I imput He / Him in for Her then the joke isn’t funny any more 🙁   (Dont you just HATE when that happens??)

Back to Funny School 101 I go!!  — For those of you who have asked where this garden is — Salt Lake City.

 It’s another fantastic Wednesday. Come celebrate with others over at A Southern Daydreamer.

Also Beverly at How Sweet the Sound with Pink Saturday.

Here’s to hoping your Fall is a relaxing and much needed rest– just know you are still beautiful!

TTFN~~ Claudia  ♥ ♥

    Hello!  Question 1:  Where is that beautiful garden?
    Note 2:  I believe Mrs. P is really Mr. P, in drag, perhaps, but nevertheless, Not a Mrs.

  19. What a beautiful place!  You did a great job of photographing it also.  Would love to go walking there, especially when the flowers were in bloom.  What is the building used for and was it someone’s home at one time?
