autumn...past & present


this week's Thematic Photographic theme is
Fall colors ~ 216


on Oct 1st, ALL my Halloween creatures find their way out of the closet...
and place themselves here and there...around our home.
on the mantel...of autumn present



it's still too hot for comfort during the day.
i'm TRYING to be patient
for some COOL weather here in north Florida.
NO changing of the leaves...not yet.

so i searched through my pictures of autumns past...for Fall colors.

in and around our home...signs of Fall


this next picture was taken along the Foothills Pkwy in North Carolina in '05.


every week, Carmi @ written inc comes up with a new theme.
no specific day to post your photo...you have all week to get around to it.

join in...read about it here.


thanks for wandering...
stay cool.  be safe.

  14. I would have a very hard time driving on that parkway: way too much stunning scenery, and way too distracting :) Love how you captured the brilliance of the curve. We live in a magical world.

  17. Gah!!! I'm running late. Leave it to you to bring us the 'true' colors of our dreams! Sticky and muggy in Texas today, with just a light drizzle, yuk! Your collage is pretty, love the added touch of the jack-o-lanterns! Just keep pushing, it will get here yet. On one good note for us...at least we haven't been in the 100 temps for a while, but, you never know, ANYTHING can creep up on you unexpectedly! Hugs to you Laura!♥

  21. You found some great fall colors! Lovely collage. It's starting to get foggy and cold here -- we won't be in Florida until December, so we'll get some Fall weather whether we want it or not.

  23. I never knew that Florida even got a Fall time of year...great pictures, Laura. I remember going back to my home state of Maryland one Thanksgiving. All the leaves up north here were gone, but there in November were the Fall colors still.
