autumn colours

October 23, 2013

a slow leak in a tire sent me off to the garage

while waiting for a fix I crossed the road to my favorite cemetery

yes, I have a favorite!

      Neki – we don’t always get a good change of colour but this year the weather has been very different.

    I think we are having a heat wave, too, here in Tucson. It was 90 F yesterday. I think your 4th photo is especially stunning. Makes me want to take a dip. I also used to live on the coast (East) and lived on a boat for a while, too.

      Kristin – I lived and cruised on 2 sailboats with 2 sons and (then) husband.We sailed down the coast, through the Panama Canal and spent a year in the Caribbean. Also sailed to Mexico, across to Hawaii and then home. Even took a table loom on one trip!

        Wow! Mine was just parked at a marina, but with a table loom, too!

        Kristin – the first trip the kids were 3 and 6. We had an imaginary cow name Ethel on the foredeck that had to be milked each morning..rain or shine!

    Great photos–I love the combo of fall colors and fog, when you never know what you’ll glimpse! I also love cemeteries! We’re going to Boston soon–the graves are OLD there!

    stunning!!! jealous here, but i at least saw some colors on the drive in and out of the country to visit my alma mater. nothing as dramatic as what you have there, but at least there are bits of color everywhere.

      Aimee – you are doing such a wonderful job of harvesting and paper making. we each find our own way at this time of year.
