"...this does seem like a happy time of year."Yes, it does! Fall is perhaps my favorite time of the year. Everything is so colorful and the air feels so crisp. It makes me feel so energized and alive!I'm originally from the north east, but lived in Florida for 20 years. I really enjoyed my time in Florida but when I turned 45, I suddenly got the desire to move back. I missed the change of seasons and how they make the holidays so special.Stunning photos! The colors you captured are truly beautiful. You really captured the essence of the fall!
Thanks! Summer is still my favorite - I am very much a warm weather person. But I do like this crisp time of year and tromping through the fallen leaves. And it does seem somehow right for the holidays to be when it's colder.
I envy you living in an area with beautiful autumn foliage. At least I can enjoy the photos. I think when it comes to other seasonal events, particularly snow, I am happy to only enjoy photos :)
You and me both - I would happily forfeit being here for the snow!
some wonderful pics...i love autumn...the pumpkin smiley face is really cool...its the crisp air and the colors that get me every year...love to be out in them...
That pumpkin face makes me smile every time I drive by it - so friendly.
Thanks for sharing your autumn with us who don't get the vivid four seasons; those trees are so gorgeous in color! I would be like you driving down the street; I'm sure I would be commenting about all the colorful trees out there!betty
Even if there isn't someone else in the car, I'm commenting in my head as I pass the trees. :-)
The colors make me happy too! I don't get that down here so it's nice to live it through you.
I figure I'll need this post to go back and look at while I'm waiting for Spring to get here.
autumn is so beautifu :)
Welcome! And yes, it is.
I'm planning a very similar post. Even have a window picture like you do! The colors are gorgeous.
Then I will come over and declare that you are copying me. :-o
the vistas the rolling foothills give do draw people to your area. Does the tree viewing tourists clog up the roads much?
Not at all - we're off the beaten path.
I love the colours of fall but I am a summer person, I need to be warm. 10 days in Egypt in December will top me up with vitamin D and make winter a little shorter I hope.
It should do that. I'm a summer person, too.
oh fall is my absolute favorite season. i think it is perfectly gorgeous. the leaves against a blue sky on a warm, sunny indian summer day....it just doesn't get any better than that in my mind. thanks for sharing your southern fall as ours is fading away. the views from your windows....aahhhh...
I love it, but I definitely prefer summer. And spring, for that matter!
Ooh, I was just needing an injection of autumn; it's gnarly bad weather outside these last two days--rain and cold and feelings fo winter too early come. Your post has reminded me there's still color and warmth to be had!
Brrr! I am not ready for winter any time soon.
i love how you take pictures of leaves.you and i can bitch our way through winter, okay? i'll start early: GRRRRRmeanwhile, it so beautiful it's almost enough to just 'be'love lovekj
You can count on me bitching with you about the cold through the winter!
Such amazing colours! There's nothing like that in Northern Ireland. Just a few orange leaves here and there. And I thought the best displays of autumn (fall) leaves were supposed to be in New England. Clearly not so!
This part of the country has an equally spectacular display in the fall, with the bonus of milder winters than up north.
Thank you so much. Absolutely gorgeous. I can't get enough.We don't get those changes here and I love seeing your photos.That yellow speckled leave against the brown leaves it my favorite.
Thanks. I'm glad to share!
I'm thinking Cinnamon/Sugar doughnut HOT out of the grease at an orchard....
I ca't say I've ever encountered donuts at an orchard.
So, should I tell you about the snow piling up outside right now? Looks like Montana is going straight into winter.
That's just crazy.
Two inches on the ground and still piling up.
Goodness, that's quite a show you get in your parts. We have some gorgeous colours but nothing like that.
We are usually lucky with fall color.
