Autumn

It’s heee-eerrree!

Welcome to my favorite time of year!

In a few short weeks, the colors of Fall will be painting the trees and shrubs.

The farmers will be out in their fields harvesting their crops.

And there will be a refreshing crispness in the air.

So I thought I’d share a few photos from my trek around during peak colors last year:

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the Fall.”  (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

Clearly it’s not just my favorite season – other people do get awfully poetic this time of year!

Get ready to go out and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer!

Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!!

World Gratitude Day

World Gratitude Day is today (Sept. 21st)
It’s not a well-known or even particularly observed “holiday”
gratitude

But that’s okay.
Let’s just make every day “Gratitude Day”!
It begins like this: “I am grateful for…”
See how easy?!
Thanks for stopping by – have a wonderful day!

Full Box of Crayons

I missed posting yesterday’s “Wednesday Wisdom” – I wasn’t near my computer long enough to edit and post.

Why? (you are so great at asking questions! lol)

Because I was out taking photos!

I’ve made it more-than clear that Autumn is my favorite time of year.

I love the colors and crispness of the air.

And guess what is right around the corner (next week!)??

hint: 09/22!! YAY!!

And guess what has already begun?

Yes, I captured this yesterday morning. I’m so excited!

As today’s post title says, Mother Nature has her crayons out!

And, in the spirit of Autumn, here’s yesterday’s post:

Wednesday Wisdom 1

When I was posting daily, I also regularly made posters from my photographs and quotes & sayings I liked.

I kinda miss doing that.

So I’m starting up again (yay!)

This saying came across my computer today – sharing the message with those of you who have supported me from the beginning seemed rather apropos:

Hello, September!

It’s hard to believe, with all of the photos of blooming roses (and other florals) I’ve been posting recently, that the first day of Autumn is just a few weeks away…

I’m psyched!

You all must know by now that Autumn is my favorite season (perhaps minus the seasonal allergies, but I digress!) and my favorite reason for living in a 4-season climate!

All of the colors painted in nature.

And the crispness of the air.

And football! (I do so love watching football)

Believe me, it’s still Summer outside right now (oh, the humidity! haha!) so I’ll keep on enjoying that, but soon enough…

Autumn!

Thanks for stopping by – have a great Labor Day!
