Nostalgic – I allow myself to reflect or reminisce,  because am looking at the last season of the year. Has kind of a finality to it. Yet, now in so much contact with blogs where it’s spring and summer, I wonder if you have similar feelings near the end of the year, or very different?



Taking a leisurely walk in Old Town Sacramento as the mornings are still not freezing cold yet:), passing by the Spirits Ale building
(Good Fences, Our Beautiful World- orange, Tue Treasure )





When visiting my friend, I had a field day, because her brother is a horticulturist and had been keeping up the garden. I love this flower and the bee loves it too (half hiding on the the left)

What’s in his beak? That’s the Question for ABC Wdnesday:)
The sun is still there, although less, even in Southern Calif.

Even  though this shot is from February- it fits with the moodiness of Fall – barely out of Los Angeles in the Grapevine (an area on the Five freeway, where one can get stranded with sudden snow), and traveling North -where I live now

  1. Lovely set of images today! I like the sea gull…no idea if it’s a clam, or mussel or something else in its beak!

    Great reflection in the glass door!

  2. Norm 2.0 says:

    That shot of the light on the hills is magical! I love the reflections in the door as well. Nicely done 🙂

  3. Peter B says:

    I really like the shot of the rolling green hills near the Grapevine. Looks like there might be a little frost on the ground?

  4. LaVoice says:

    What a pleasant assortment in views.

    love the last rolling hills. but the brick building is neat, the glistening waters, too.

  6. Debbie Smyth says:

    Fantastic post – I adore the February shot!

  7. Nice looking building, I like brick buildings. – Awesome ending shot. I think I’d rather end the year in Summer than Winter myself.

  8. Jim says:

    Beautiful sky.

    Looks like some sort of clam in the bird`s beak.

    Pretty shots and I guess a mollusc!

  16. I love your capture of the green CA hills, Jesh. Won’t be long for them to start getting green again. Hurrah!

  17. James says:

    Nice series of photos! The bottom one is so beautiful!

  18. Felicia says:

    love that last moody shot of the rolling hills.

  19. VioletSky says:

    I’ve always thought our New Year is totally wrong. It should be at the end of September. (maybe we should latch onto the Jewish New Year?!)
    Love the rolling hills – especially as where I live is it is relatively flat.

  20. Pat says:

    Love those rolling green foothills, Jesh. They look like our foothills in spring.

  21. restlessjo says:

    Thanks for the inclusion, Jesh. Wishing you a great November. 🙂

  22. ladyfi says:

    What a lovely walk!

  23. Sallie says:

    The Fall season brings out feelings of nostalgia for me too. I enjoyed your lovely walk”…

  24. Molly says:

    That landscape shot is absolutely amazing, the way the light is falling over the it and the textures and shapes….just fantastic


  25. narami says:

    Beautiful as always jesh, got into the nostalgic mood. Thanks for sharing!

  26. photowannabe says:

    It is true that this time of year can be QUITE moody, but I love it anyway.
    Old Sacramento is fun anytime of the year.

  27. Teresa says:

    Wonderful assortment of images. The flower with the bee is lovely. I think that last photo has to be my favorite. Stunning scenery. Thanks so much for participating. Hope you have a great week!

  28. Great photos to share today. The flower and the bee, (hiding) is pretty. The sea gull and the reflections photo also caught my eye.
    Happy Blue Monday,

  29. Nice shots! It’s a lovely time of year.

  30. elizabethfstewart says:

    I’d like to explore Sacramento a bit more!

  31. marja says:

    Nice building. I love that flower which you see around here as well. Love the sparkles on the water and the green hills is an absolute stunner

  32. Lea says:

    Love the Gull with the sun sparkling on the water!

  33. Mary-The Boondocks Blog says:

    I really love that shot in California. It is so atmospheric and moody. The hills look like they are about to start rolling. My favorite season is Fall because of all the colors and changes. Nothing is stagnant and there is something new to see every day. The colors are much more vibrant than Spring’s color pallet.

  34. merlanne says:

    Wonderful “Fall” pictures. You are right, this season makes me nostalgic, too. But I cheer the last sunny days before winter, a very grey and rainy season in Luxemburg.

  35. Melody62 says:

    I could say but guessing … it looks like an oistershell

    Have a wonderful ABC-day / – week

  37. jesh stg says:

    Am happy I connected without knowing to a wordpresser:) Looked at your beautiful post from Barcelona because our son did his interneship there, before graduating from an international college in the Hague. The office he worked at was next to the Gaudi.

  38. merlanne says:

    Oh yes, Barcelona is great, I love visiting this town.

  39. jesh stg says:

    Elisabeth, somehow I can’t get to your blog? Do you have one? Thanks for visiting!

  40. treadway says:

    Oh, I always get in a ‘thinking’ mood in the fall…it is a time of remembering for me. I also get even more weepy.

  41. My mom just went to California a couple of weeks and went to her old stomping grounds of Glendale and was sad because so much has changed. Lovely photos! Have a great weekend!

  42. Nice shots, Jesh. Still evidence of some green on that vine in the first photo.
    Many thanks for contributing to the Friday Greens meme.

  43. Lisa says:

    That last shot with the contrast and the shadows… lovely.

    Lisa @ LTTL

  44. pattisj says:

    Nice old brick Ale building. The landscape shot from February is lovely. I never pictured California to look like that.

  45. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Patti! Oh yeah, especially more Mid and North in California. And the view you’re referring to is actually still considered southern Calif. We have storms too, the difference with the Northern states is in the temperature:)
    Hope to see you back in a few days in ALL SEASONS:)

  46. pattisj says:

    Hopefully I can get my mess together! LOL

  47. Catherine says:

    Thank you for the beautiful nostalgic tour… I’m a huge fan of the Fall and that’s exactly the mood that reigns over the season. I love the last image of the hills, so serene and majestic!

  48. I enjoyed seeing your nature as it is getting very bare looking here and very quiet with no insects…..Michelle

  49. Roger Green says:

    Not sure I WANT to know what’s in the beak!

  50. All lovely. 🙂
