Our World!!


Welcome to Our World!!! Now that I’m an “old broad” and don’t have to return to a classroom anymore and live in a part of my world that seems to love the colorful beauty of Autumn. I do look forward to this colorful time of year particularly here in the northwest US!! And it’s already beginning to put in a timid approach after the long, hot summer!! But I looked back today and got so excited realizing that it won’t be long before I can see sights like this every day!!
I hope you enjoy!! Have a great week!!

Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.
Faith Baldwin

Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.
Samuel Butler

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
Elizabeth Lawrence
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

What gorgeous country! We won't see any seasonal changes for awhile yet and it's still hot as blazes. But maybe in October? :)

Your autumn starts brilliantly. Here it is still summer.it's all very green, but we have had a terrible thunderstorm several buildings were hit by lightning. last night and burnt down. Therewas a strong wind blowing and a lot of trees were uprooted, but not in mty village fortunately.
I hope that autumn and winter will be nice to us. Thanks for your kind comment and have a wonderful week!

Beautiful Autumn images. Why, I can almost smell the hint of Fall in the air with these captures!!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

I, too, am looking forward to the fall colours, although many leaves have dropped off already because of the overly dry weather this summer.

TexWisGirl said...

leaves are falling all around here because we are hot and dry. i miss the colors of the north. :)

Great photos of the autumn leaves. It is a very beautiful time of the year.

As far as I concerned, autumn starts the first of September, no matter what they say! ;))). And this year everything has been earlier, because of how dry it is so I think your Autumn post is perfectly timed. It is a beautiful season in Portland and here too!

I can see why you look forward to the autumn. Those scenes are so beautiful already.

Photo Cache said...

You are farther along than I would have expected. I cannot wait for the fall colors myself.

These pictures are definitely putting me in the mood for fall Sylvia! Even here in north Florida, I have had leaves falling in my back yard already.

Al said...

Autumn will be here before we know it - we already had some nights in the 40s before we returned to summer this weekend. It's certainly a beautiful season in your part of the world. Have a wonderful week, Sylvia!

Jack said...

That is a great Camus quote. I am going to tell everyone that it is mine. "Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower."

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots of colorful trees.

Linda said...

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.
