Brilliant Autumn

Hello friends,

A few weeks ago I took a drive after work to enjoy the gorgeous fall foliage.  I can't think of a better way to savor the rich tones of red, orange and gold than with a drive through the countryside.  The colors this year were so brilliant.

Spectacular views appeared at every bend.



As I passed The First Baptist Church I came upon a wooden gazebo.  A tranquil place to hold an autumn wedding.  Don't you think?


It was then time to park and head out on foot.  I could smell the autumn leaves as I walked by this pond.


I just love the way the trees and foliage framed this beautiful horse.  Quite a mixed color palette this year!


I have been watching the squirrels gather nuts for the winter.  Does a cold, snowy winter lie ahead?  If so, I am prepared as my husband bought me a new winter coat last week for my birthday.



Thank you for dropping by and enjoying the autumn landscape with me.  Wishing you a blessed day!

This week I am joining ...

Hi Donna, Absolutely beautiful shots! Autumn is gorgeous in your part of the country! Also I was noticing the magazines you've been published in, on your left sidebar. Impressive! You do create the most intricate and lovely cards!
Hugs, Beth

Thanks for taking me on a walk with you. With our recent blustery winds and driving rain, almost all our leaves have blown away.

Was lovely having a visit from you again Donna. Beautiful photographs - this really is a glorious time of year and I suppose made all the more special because it lasts for such a short time.

Hi Donna,
Fall in New England is nothing short of beautiful! Love your day out at the falls. I think I will venture out next year a little further than I do now! So much to see. Enjoy the rest of November..We woke to a coating of snow this morning!

Very nice post buddy!! I really enjoyed reading this post. This autumn I had great fun and I attended not only family parties but fun office party too. I had great time in fun parties at Chicago venues which were my favorite.
