Fall Foliage Memories















Now that it looks like THIS outside:


...I figured it was a good time to post some of my favorite fall foliage pictures that I meant to put on my blog last month. Hey, it's not officially winter yet, so it's not too late! We had an amazing foliage season in New England this year. Everyone seemed a little stunned by just how beautiful it was. My humble pictures can't do it justice, but they give a little taste of what it was like around here in Connecticut for a few glorious weeks in October.

This was the view up ahead when turning into our neighborhood and driving up the street.







The flaming orange/red tree in the center of the picture caught my eye.


(This beautiful picture of John was taken and edited by my friend Alyson.)

At the playground near our house





Trees in our neighborhood




One downfall of fall (no pun intended): All of the raking

It was such a beautiful fall. I'm looking forward to another one next year. In the meantime, on to winter!

And this is probably the main reason I love New England. The trees.

I love all the pictures---of the leaves, the trees, and the precious one of your son. I always miss the East in Autumn.

You got some beautiful photos! It was such an amazing fall and I have such good memories from it. One of which was our awesome trip to Salem.

The one thing I actually miss about New England... I love your pics by the way.
Winter has arrived early here in Dallas. It was 29 degrees today! But this weekend calls for 72 degrees so nothing to really complain about. :)
