Autumn leaves...

There's something to love about every season.
What's not to love about the colors of fall?

The rainy season has its drawbacks, but it has its benefits too.
What's not to love about cozy candlelight and crackly fires in the fireplace?

Homemade soups and stews, 
yummy pumpkin recipes,
cozy sweaters and jeans worn with my favorite boots,
more things to love about the fall!

That we get to set the clock back this coming weekend, 
meaning we gain an hour of sleep instead of losing one like we do in the spring,
is a pretty big plus about autumn.

So, what do you love about this season?

  1. What I love about this season is that it's a wonderful time to begin again, to start over. Unlike the pressure of January with it's New Year's resolutions, fall ushers in a time of quiet reflection where change is often welcome. The colorful leaves in your beautiful photographs today remind me that this life is good and full of possibilities.

  2. Wonderful Albert Schweitzer quote. You have pretty leaves. My favorites are the third and fifth pictures as they really show off the leaf colors.

    This week our temps aware in the 80's-again. At least the nights are cool now.

  4. Beautiful fall colors! I enjoy trying on my sweaters and jeans again, it is like getting 'new' clothes, and soup with good homemade (bought at the bakery) bread too. Have a great week!

  5. Elizabeth, You have captured the essence of autumn so beautifully! This is my favorite time of year because of the vibrant colors and the cooler temperatures. Early morning and evening is the best time to view the colorful mountain vistas!

  7. I've dreaded fall because I know what's coming afterwards....but this fall has been truly beautiful. We've had rain and wind in NE Oregon, but many of the trees are still hanging on to their colorful leaves. Today might be the big change, though....very cold last night and the wind has begun this morning. LOVE your leaves in the milk bottle! I found one tucked away recently...I'm not certain where it came from but it's old.

  13. There's sort of a restful feeling about Autumn that I love. But mostly, I think I just love the seasonal change. By the time the next one rolls around, I'm ready. The only season that really wears on me is Winter. The cold mostly. Spring is always most welcome! Your images are lovely, as always, Elizabeth. Have a blessed week!
