Fall Colors On Parade


Today, I thought that I'd share with you some of my drive-by photos that I took last Saturday on a drive through the countryside. 

 

“How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light 
and color are their last days.” 
~John Burroughs


“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.”
~William Cullen Bryant


 “Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.”
~Emily Bronte
 

“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.”
~Elizabeth Lawrence


"There is something incredibly nostalgic about the annual 
cascade of autumn leaves."
~Joe L. Wheeler

Until next time...

  1. Oh my GOSH!!!!! You and I posted the exact same thing today! I LOVE yours!!! The second and last pictures are my very favorite, they are awesome!!! You must have been transported! The last picture...I would have gone there with a picnic basket on that green grass and never left. Your header...I love the center picture and the bridge the best.
