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
The weather has changed. The clouds have rolled in, the winds are blustery and leaves are littering the ground.
Autumn is my favorite time of year. The heat of the summer has gone, the air is fresh and crisp, and it is a wonderful time to be outdoors.
The park was the perfect place to be this afternoon. Families were out walking with their children. Young lovers were strolling through the park. Everyone has put away their shorts and t-shirts and are now donning sweatshirts and long pants.
Winter is just around the corner.

Gorgeous! Such beautiful colors.
Thanks, Susan. This is such a beautiful time of year.
Beautiful photos, Maralee!
Thank you, Carissa
Lovely photos… Autumn colours are a magnificent capture… difficult to describe but beautiful to look at…
Thanks, Rob. It won’t be long before all the leaves are gone and we are left with bare branches. I will enjoy the color while it lasts.
I love this post! The quote made me realize that I actually love autumn too!!!! And your pictures do the quote justice. Love the second to last picture!!! 🙂
To me there is something that is so refreshing about autumn. The summer can be so hot and dry and when that first cool, blustery breeze come through, I just go Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
I love anything cooler than summer! 🙂
Maralee, just as I see the autumn just now too – just love it .. it has been a bit wet lately over here, but I’m sure that the sun will back soon. Love your photos – my pick of the day will be the last one, but please don’t mention the winter yet. *smile
Welcome back. Good to see you again. I’m not ready for winter either, so I will just enjoy the autumn for as long as I can. 🙂
yes, lets wait with the winter …. I just love this season too. Thanks for having me bacck *smile
Our clouds in LA should start to change soon…. I wait for it all year…. when it happens I always get my camera out! Nice shots. Keep up the good work. One day maybe we can take a photo/bike vacation!
A photo/bike vacation would be fun. Can you believe it will be 10 years since our Provence bike trip? A lot has happened in those 10 years. Would love to get together with you again.
