Falling for Colors

I am experiencing autumn like never before. 


Each day when I drive my short route to town, 
I fall in love with the new colors of the day.


Autumn comes suddenly here.
It surprised this California girl by swiftly sweeping through the leaves in September.

At first it seemed as if a blush had been applied to the uppermost edges of the trees.



The fire bushes turned a magnificent red.


This tree is right in the middle of town, next to a park.
 I love the burnt orange next to the blue sky.


But, I can tell it won't last long. 
The leaves are already falling.


 I have a new love for a season that gives me colors I didn't realize had been created. 

Um... he's just super cute so I am throwing this one in as a non sequitur!


I'm finding that change is quite beautiful.




What is autumn like where you live?

So pretty Brigetta. Glad you get to experience it. Ours is looking just like that now too. I love the color, but it makes me a little sad too. I know what's coming. Have to fight off the feelings of dread.

Love the pictures, wish i was there to see them in person. Our colors have been changing for the last couple of days.Wish they could stay a little longer. Why does fall have to be so short. I LOVE that boy.
