Fall is Beautiful and Bursting with Color!

20141003_102227Fall is my favorite time of year. I can’t take enough pictures of all the beauty around the neighborhood and in my travels. I want to share some of this beauty with you.



Here is my autumn poem:      AUTUMN

This season has always been my favorite time of year.

The air is ever so crisp and clear.

The sky is a brilliant shade of blue

and even the clouds can’t hide its hue.

The trees are ripening to beautiful shades of red, orange and yellow

and it is a perfect time to take a walk with my very special fellow.

If only the trees will hold their lovely leaves a bit longer

but then the wind begins to blow a little stronger.

I feel like a kid again as I skip through the leaves

that are falling from all of the trees.

I gaze about at all nature’s beauty around me

and it makes me happy to be alive as anyone can see.

I know that we must enjoy this season while it lasts

because soon it will all be in the past.

Autumn is surely a sign for all of God’s love

and I am truly thankful for all the glorious beauty HE sends us from above.


Blessings to all and hope you will enjoy this lovely season before it is over all too soon.

I couldn’t resist adding a few summer flowers to cheer everyone who misses summer.
