A Sunny Autumn Day in the Adelaide Hills


The sun was shining brightly at 9 am today in Aldgate, and the leaves were arguing with each other, - whether to fall or stay on the trees. You could nearly hear them.
Perhaps they were sick of looking at this Palladian Entablature. I can't think why !

I would love to live in a home like this one for a while -- just to test it out -- I might not like it. But I think it would be nice to explore different rooms. Look at the garden. I can't begin to imagine what it would cost to heat and cool the building. Probably more money than I got.

I like your photograph. It is really just plain, "pretty as a picture."

I have celebrated this day, Mother's Day in my country, with a magazine cover for my wife. I hope you can see it.

Remarkable composition. The shades of yellow, both bright and muted, blend together beautifully. It is a lovely scene!

Love the photo. It looks so nice and bright and sunny.

Beautiful isn't it? This house is one of my favourites - just down the street and around a few bends from our place. Autumn colours are so beautiful in the hills.

lynn said...

Oh yes this house has my name on it. LOL i wish! Stunning. I'd adore it.

Monica said...

I think the leaves were saying: "let's get Monica here as quick as possible, she must see this lovely house"

The light in this picture is super!

angela said...

I just love the proportions of this house and the light on the leaves.

Happy Mother's Day Maman! Hope you enjoyed your lunch out.

Superbe lumière, on pourrait se croire en Angleterre...

M.Benaut said...

Oui, il a cet aspect anglais. On croire certainement que cette maison était en Angleterre.

Quoique le soleil soit bas dans le ciel, il est néanmoins, très lumineux et gai. Peut-être nous l'appellerons, "Maison Monica", ou "Le Luxe de Lynn ?

Peut-être il peut trouver dans la vallée de Loire ?

Monsieur le Président, il est correct, il coûtera beaucoup à la chaleur et se refroidira.

Au Minnesota et en Pennsylvanie, il y a probablement beaucoup de maisons grandes juste comme celle-ci.

Like Lynn I think ti should have my name !!! I love it so much and your composition it's really superb (as usual by the way).

M.Benaut said...

Alice, s'il vous plaît, volonté vous me pardonnez. Je dois aller à l'Alliance Française lundi nuit. Mon professeur me détruira, si j'oublie quelque chose. Cependant, je n'oserai dire rien dans le Grec.

M.Benaut said...

Il Palazzo di Fabrizio è un nome che è migliore. Penso che lo chiamiamo da quel nome da questo giorno.

Ringraziamenti per la posizione del nome corretto. Ha un suono molto buon.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh you found my DREAM HOUSE M-B! ;)

Such a nice gift for Mom's Day! Gorgeous! Now all it needs is a hunky pool boy who can stand next to me on my chaise lounge, fanning me and peeling grapes for me! ;)

Miss y'all!

HUGS!

lynn said...

So good it was worth saying twice, Sally! lol.

Don't worry, Mon', neither is mine.
So when shall we move in? Have you got a lot of stuff? I bags the bedroom at the front with the ensuite...

alice said...

It's so nice to read your French sentences here! Does your teacher know you have this blog?

M.Benaut said...

Alice,
Vous êtes très aimable pour dire ces choses gentilles.
J'espère que quelques autres certains n'éviteront pas mon Blog, quand j'écris en français.
Mon professeur a été dit pour visiter et je dois le battre parce qu'il peut apprendre comment le mauvais je suis.
Ce soir, nous avons étudié les pronoms d'objet direct et les pronoms d'objet indirects, et la commande correcte pour les placer dans la phrase.
Ma tête est dans une petite rotation !
Il a également dit une histoire drôle au sujet de la voie que les Français utilisent les suppositoires. Il est également un garçon très mauvais ! ! !

What can I say except I WANT THAT!

Hello,

This photo is beautiful. I grew up in the hills and now live in Europe, so I really enjoy your website. But this house I have never liked... this used to be a field with a horse, trees... this place was built by I think some wealthy people from the city -maybe 7 years ago. It is an inconspicuous, vulgar, pink, fake Jane-Austen house... I am sorry, that is just my opinion. I promise you, the field and horses were nicer...

Mme Benaut said...

Thanks Old Hills Girl. Sorry you don't like the house and it is right next to the railway line so it would be a bit noisy at night with all of those goods trains. I love fields and horses and trees too but, I have to say, I still like the house.
Thanks for visiting - look forward to more comments from time to time.
