Anticipation

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




I couldn't resist posting one of my Autumn photos from last year. This was taken in the early morning and I loved the contrast of the light fog against the brilliant colored trees. I am ready once again for Nature's best show of the year!

Beautiful photo, Shelley... The colors are fabulous--and I love that fog....

I am so excited that Fall is on the way... You'll get it before we do.

Hugs,

Good Morning Shelley, What a lovely photo. When I was in my twenties, I visited good friends who lived in MI. They owned a cabin on a lake and your photo reminds me of the good times we had.

Ahhhh, such a cooling view. Southern CA is at its hottest with a hurricane off the coast of Mexico making us hotter and humid. Sept. is the warmest month here......so........thanks for the wonderful photo of autumn. I love the UP. Thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful view Shelley! I'm still "adjusting" to the thought of fall. The changing leaves will steal my heart, though!

My jaw kind of dropped as this photo loaded, and then I scrolled down to the "last year" part. For a sec, I thought you had time-warped into October!

Beautiful. That is the great think about photographs, they are as good year after year as when they were taken.

AWESOME photo, Shelley!
Our leaves are already about 30% colored leaves now in the U.P. They are changing more and more every day!
And we are being blessed with warm days with no rain too...I am behind in reading my fav blogs because I am literally drinking in the last of summer and the beginning of autumn outdoors.

WONDERFUL! I am eager to see the autumn colors as well! They are appearing right before my eyes and I am so happy. The cold chilly nights are speeding up the process and I am pleased!
