Dropping slowly into the plate of my heart...
these colorful offerings from Fall have
been delightful blessings day after day.
|A myriad of color has filled the skies on my evening walks.|
|The brilliant colors of fall on display.|
|Down by the river, this quiet place of reflection beckoned to me, the muted rays of the sun bouncing off of the chilled waters, with the brilliant foliage arched over my head, creating a simple moment of beauty, nestled forever in my heart.|
|Row upon row upon row of color, |
each leaf outstanding in its own right,
together each one creating a chorus
deserving of a standing ovation.
|Resplendent intoxicating colors...|
|Crimson-hued maple leaves hover over the dazzling willow's green, creating a mesmerizing sauna of colorful warmth.|
|As each leaf falls and finds its way to the ground, slowly the bronzed colors of the earth take over.|
|One leaf that stood out among the crowd, bright red with browned polka dots.|
|I was amazed at how the color of the tree matched the color of this building.|
|The most majestic tree of them all... the Blazing Red Maple.|
|Have you ever seen an iridescent leaf... this one in particular stood out to me with its unusual glittering foliage.|
|With colors like these abounding, it is hard to keep from "oohing and aahing" as I drive!|
|Earth, water and sky celebrating in glorious abandon.|
|This pastoral scene captivated my heart.|
|The curving passages of the river display Fall's grandeur.|
|Fall... why must you hurry along so?|
|Alight with late afternoon sun, the calm waters of our little lake reflect the colors of the hovering mountains.|
|Each lily pad takes on its own sweet beauty in the dappled sunshine.|
|Little boats of color shining with iridescent loveliness, touched by the sprinkled afternoon sunshine.|
|Every gate mysteriously beckons my camera and I...|
|Hazy reflections in the shimmering waters of the river's jutted island.|
|The slow cadence of leaves gently falling one by one|
are in rhythm with the gentle splashing of
the river's waters on the beach.
|Remember my sweet Gracie, whose feet were crippled at birth? She posed for me in front of my pumpkins, a happy little thing with nary a care in the world, so thankful she is no longer a cripple!|
|Mr. Sal enjoying some loving pecks from sweet Miss Sarah.|
|Lunch with precious friends at a new restaurant in town, a loaded baked potato adorned with a mountain of freshly smoked brisket... oh my! Delicious!|
|On our morning walk, the golden aspens shimmered in their mud puddle reflections.|
|It's that time of year again for homemade pumpkin pie! It is our family's favorite pie.|
|Fallen leaves have created a wavy pattern on the shoreline of the lake.|
|Up close and personal... each one unique and deserving of my attention.|
|A wooden fence graced by fall's abundant colors.|
|These two trees are favorites of mine... Blazing Red Maples taking their time this year to change their colors... their brilliance will be on display for weeks yet!|
|Walking in the fog one morning, and the skies were embraced with this Fog Bow... have you ever seen one? |
Quite magnificent to behold!
|My daughter came home under the throes of a terrible cold. |
I made her some hot tea and we enjoyed a little spur of the moment tea party. Tea always makes you feel better!
|We enjoyed drinking the Tea Bloom green tea along with a little bite of biscotti :)|
My folder of October pictures overfloweth and runneth over... I must stop now... but thank you for staying with me through this pictorial view of Fall here in north Idaho! I know the days are coming where gray is the dominant color, and white not far behind. So while the days are beautiful, and the sun is shining, I'll be out soaking up the last bits of sunshine and warmth the season has to offer before the rains and snow descend.
Sharing before I go this scripture today that blessed me...
Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion,
and turneth the shadow of death into the morning,
and maketh the day dark with night:
that calleth for the waters of the sea,
and poureth them out upon the face of the earth:
the LORD is His name.
