Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile!

Autumn is sure putting on a gorgeous display here in Michigan again this year.

I L.O.V.E. it!

I wake up to this gorgeous scene day after day. This is across the road from our house.

I guess there are perks to living in Michigan on a back, dirt road after all. I mean
you just don't see this beauty in the city.

"Come, little leaves"
said the wind one day,
"Come to the meadows
with me and play.
Put on your dresses of red and gold;
For summer is past,
and the days grow cold."
~ George Cooper

I shot these photos yesterday in our front yard when the sun was shining through the trees after a rain.

Can you say AMAZING??

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 Elliot

AMAZING!... really Sandi, it is absolutely beautiful where you live!... I will choose a back country road over a big city any day (and I do!)... love the view out your front door... I would just sit there, coffee in hand... gaze at all of the beauty around me... and daydream... L.O.V.E. your crown with the pumpkin in it!... xoxo... Julie Marie

Our State has beautiful foliage too this time of the year. One of the best things about living in WV.

Hi Sandi~I went to Gaylord on Tuesday to meet Debbie from Green Willow Pond. It was pouring so hard, I couldn't see the colors very well. Of course, just before the sun went down, it came out, lol.
I have that same crown, and I LOVE it!! I dumped the shells out of it from summer, and put boo pumpkins in it. Your's looks so cute!!!
Your post is lovely. The images are beautiful, as are the words.

It is just beautiful where you live. Our trees won't turn colors for a few more weeks (usually the beginning of November). I love the autumn trees.

You've captured Mother Nature's beauty just perfectly.
