Falling in Love

Yes it's true, I am falling in love with FALL all over again. And lest you think I am simply a fool for yellow, orange, red and the lot, know that this fall season the colors are like none I remember. They have been deeper and brighter and continue to grace us with their color through heavy rains and wind. Tough stuff. Admittedly they can now also be found on the ground, in wonderful yellow and red heaps. 

Rather than explore here all the conditions necessary to bring on this rush of visual goodness, I'm just going to share a few of the sights I've seen lately. Some of the maple images will be from trees here at home, however know in advance I no longer remember their proper names as I once did. Other photos were taken on Mt Rainier, near Port Townsend, at Wrights Park in Tacoma, along with numerous other locations. I'll try to add more photos over the next few days.

"Climb the
and get 

peace will 
flow into you
as sunshine
into trees.


The winds will blow their own freshness into you, 

and the storms their energy, 
while care will drop off like autumn leaves."
~ John Muir

Oh, my! Your fall foliage pictures are wonderful! We were up in Washington State last year this time, and you do get beautiful color there! Thanks for sharing...
