Our World!!


I’m getting excited about the approach of autumn!!!  Being from Texas originally, I do get tire d of the summer heat very quickly!!  So, I took a “picture stroll” back to another autumn and that is what I’m sharing with you today!!




Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
George Eliot


Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
Emily Bronte

October is a symphony of permanence and change.
Bonaro W. Overstreet

Some of the trees are already turning over here... it's a lovely time of year.

Just lovely, Sylvia. Here in southern New Mexico we are savoring the signs that the summer heat is over and autumn is approaching. Such a wonderful time of year.

I'm sure you will be taking more stunning photos before too long.

Beautiful look back! It has been autumn cool here, but the trees have not changed color.

Lovely autumn scenes - and I guess you can have too much heat during the summer. BUT for me there is nothing quite so nice and sunshine and warm salty water at the beach!

I also love autumn, it's a beautiful time of year. Not too hot, but not enough snow yet to get tired of it. Enjoy your week, Sylvia.

I have to say, Sylvia, that I too love Autumn. It is my favorite season both because of the richness of the colors and the coolness of the weather (I love the 70's as long as it isn't raining :) But this last year left me uneasy about autumn because it was so fleeting and led us into a dreadfully long and cold winter. I hope it won't be the same this year, but the predictions say otherwise. I do love your post and the perfect quotations ... oh, for autumn to be autumn again :)

These are beautiful, Sylvia. The last few days have felt like fall, and my mind is turning toward Florida again.

What a lovely series of shots. I hope this coming autumn is as gorgeous as the one you just showed us.

Betsy Adams said...

Beautiful Fall pictures. I love the foggy one --mainly because we had had so many foggy mornings here recently.... They make for some good photos, don't you think?

Hugs,
Betsy

Awesome captures of nature's colors!

Arija said...

Autumn is my favourite time of year also and it's a looong way away here . . .
Love all your glorious fall colours no matter which fall they are from.

Cynthia said...

That's what I will be returning home to in a couple weeks, I imagine. Beautiful photos and quotes to go with them.

Gattina said...

Beautiful photos, but I hate autumn, it's the worst season for me, the end of the summer and begin of winter !

Reader Wil said...

Our day started with fog as well. Unfortunately it caused a lot of problems on the overcrowded roads.Hopefully there weren't any casualties.
Anyway I wish you a great week.

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.
