Fall leaves...

Sandy left a sea of leaves in my yard, but none as beautiful as these.

Somewhere in the woods behind my house,  an owl lurks and hoo-hoo-hoos.

Autumn at The Homestead...

The Colonel and I took in some golf and a visit to the Homestead in Hot Springs, VA.

 Furnishings and fabrics in our room in "the tower"

 Horses in a pasture which borders the golf course

 Fabulous architectural detailing

 Map of the C&O railway which lead visitors to the resort long ago

 The lobby where tea is served every afternoon... your choice of iced or hot

 The clubhouse at the Cascades course.
 Once the summer home of a wealthy New York stockbroker, Jake Rubino who lost it all in The Crash.

 Photos of Sam Snead over the fireplace

 Women's locker room was just lovely.

 A clock reminds one of the time....don't be late to the tee box!

Exquisite detailing everywhere
