We have continued to have beautiful, dry weather and no rain -- yet!!  At this time of year I begin looking for the brilliant colors, they're not here yet, but I do have my memories and I will share some more of my autumn-colored ones  with you today!

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.  Stanley Horowitz

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

Your collages are always so grand. I don't think it's fair that you have access to such wonders of nature. I mean we have some stuff here in Florida, but I think you've been blessed with the best. But then, who said life is fair? Right? :-)

Very nice, my friend! We won't get fall colors until December! And even then nothing like your fall colors!

What gorgeous shots. Autumn is definitely one of the best seasons.

Fall is my favorite time of year. Warm days, cool nights, and so colorful.

I just don't know how your friend in Mumbai creates those amusing headers each week. Love the colours in your collection this week. It would appear that Autumn is beginning to make its presence felt.

I can't wait for the fall colors!

SandyCarlson said...

These sure are lovely. You are heralding autumn for me.

Beautiful photos from the autumn archives, Sylvia. Some of our trees are just starting to turn, but I think it's from the stress of no water since it certainly hasn't turned cool yet. Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine while you can!

Meoww said...

Wonderful shots of colorful trees and what a wonderful sky shot! I am also looking forward to the colors of the fall...

Bright and colourful collage!!

There’s something sad and lonely at the end of summer no matter how hot it was. Autumn makes up for the heat of summer and I look forward to glorious autumn like in your collage. Have a nice weekend, Sylvia.

What a colorful collage and I am particularly fond of the red shrub and tree. I am thinking a type of Japanese maple but not sure.

Have a glorious week, mon amie!

Bises,

Beautiful composite, Sylvia. We live in a wonderful world and most people are good. It only takes a few nasties to ruin it for everyone...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

A beautiful Fall collage! Autumn is really my favorite season -- and nowdays summer/fall is actually the only seasonal change we've seen (no changes in Florida).

I think this header is my favorite ever!

Oh wow, it has been so long since I last contributed but hope I cam contribute soon. Lovely scene as always.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
