It's time to dress for fall...

As promised, I went out and snapped a few fall pictures to show the contrast of the changing seasons.  Many of the trees around me are beautiful right now; it's so nice to see those blazing shades of yellow, orange and red as I'm driving about or off on a bike ride.

I know autumn won't last long, so I'll hold onto these pictures as a keepsake, returning to look at them on those cold winter days when the trees are empty and sad.  There's a chill in the air today and I needed three layers to keep warm.

May the colors inspire you as you're sitting down to write today.

ETA:  I'm going to update this soon.  I found an area with much better foliage. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me, so I could not capture what I saw.


  1. Thanks for the photos. Our leaves have been gone for a few weeks now. No snow yet, but it's coming.

  2. Sounds delightful. And looks even better. We had a cold spell last weekend, which in Florida means 60s. Its back up to 90 today. Ugh! Thankfully my current WIP takes place up north in the fall.

  3. Thanks you. They are beautiful pictures.

  4. Beautiful pictures! Our leaves have only just gone mostly red and gold - it happened almost overnight, it seems.
