Du soleil dans nos coeurs, or some sun inside

I want the same in my garden, a orange dahlia from my neighbour garden.
C'était aussi Halloween chez ma voisine, elle m'a envoyé ce magnique dahlia, couleur soleil couchant, soleil d'été bien entendu, à Royan sur la mer du côté de Cordouan.

She says it's Halloween too in her garden, de superbes potimarons qui ont poussés tout doucement, je me demande si je ne vais pas en planter aussi l'année prochaine.

It has been raining all day, it's wet and cold, I love this weather, it is not that often that we get such an awful weather on a sunday when you can cuddle up inside, with a cup of tea in front of the fire place. I went to the cemetery with mum, under a downpour, the cemetery is beautiful afeter All Saints Day, it looks like a garden in summer, in France people put chrysanthemum on tombs, all the tombs are covered with chrysanthemum, it's beautiful.

J'adore ce temps froid, humide et pluvieux, il n'arrive pas si souvent après tout, justement un dimanche quand on peut rester à admirer son feu de cheminée tout l'après midi, après un petit tour au cimetière sous la pluie battante, avec maman, en riant comme des baleines en pensant à ceux qui sont partis, le cimetierre est tellement beau après la Toussaint, aussi fleuri qu'un jardin en été.

Bonjour Kitem, ou Bonsoir...

Belles photos, mais je ne suis pas d'accord avec Toi pour le temps humide... Bien sûr, c'est joli un feu de cheminée, mais l'humidité, bofff...
Bonne soirée à Toi !

Beautiful Dahlias..I am not sure if we have them here, and love that pumpkin. I am back at work today and very happy to receive your post card from beautiful LONDON. Merci and big hugs to you :D

I hate rainy days - but perhaps if I had a lovely fireplace like yours I wouldn't. We do have a gas fire in the rec room but it would be so much nicer in the living room I think.

Isn't it nice that you can "steal" your neighbors dahlias with your camera? So pretty.

Yes, I would want that dahlia too!

Looks like we have the same weather here in the tropics and over in France. Rain! Though chrysanthemums are associated to different things, they are truly beautiful. Enjoy your week ahead!

Et un grand bonjour au petit scarabée qui se dore au soleil, abrité dans les pétales du dalhia en se frottant les pattes avant de plaisir.

That is a beautiful dahlia. My mom loves to grow them in her garden in all sizes. She has the small dainty ones and the huge dinner plate sized flowers all smiling at the world in a variety of colors.
