Let's Go Walkabout...

The frost tinged Autumn winds rush about...wickedly tearing delicate leaves from their noble station and callously tossing them to the ground... It is here, here on the cold, brown earth; here where they band together & rise up to face their enemy. Once again they face this frigid gust of air, powerless no more. They madly dance and twirl in this vortex like tumbling multi-colored glass chips in a child's kaleidoscope. Shredded bits of fiery orange, crimson red and ruddy gold frantically trying to escape this lowly place. Breaking free, they reach for the sun lit tree tops and touch the Heaven's blue. I went on a little Autumn walkabout this morning. I thought I would take all of you along too. It is so much nicer when a stroll is shared with friends. Have a sweet weekend...stay well, stay safe and remember to smile, you have such a pretty grin! Oh yes you do! There...see?

Hi Susie,
Love the Autumn pictures!!!
I'm glad you and I are the same age. I turned 51 in June. It's a weird number. Is your birthday on the 26th(Same day as the wedding)
I will toast to your birthday at the wedding. You are a great lady!!!
Love your Halloween goodies, by the way. What a fun swap.
Have a great weekend,
Rosemary

Your colors are breathtaking. I think here the leaves will just drop without giving us any show at all.

Diane J. said...

Your Autumn foliage is gorgeous, Susie! Ours hasn't even really begun to show much color at all so far. When we have a frost that should change.

Hope you have a great birthday, just in case I don't get by here again before the big day!

Hugs,

Diane

Awesome day for the leaves...I actually saw a "vortex" of them right down the street on my way to the bank earlier...

Grinnin' just for YOU!

Hello Susie.. autumns color may be in all her glory but I have not seen it in my garden as yet! All my trees turn color a bit later on or is it that our evenings have not been cold enough!
Your photos show how autumn is a ~mosaic of golden colors!~

Thank you for your continued get well wishes as I heal! I truly am uplifted by your words of encouragement!hugging you softly NG

Brenda said...

I have never seen such pretty colors and fall leaves in my life. I don't think unless you live in the South you realize their beauty. All that turns here is the pines and they are not pretty. Thanks for letting me go with you!
have a great weekend,Brenda

Stunningly beautiful pictures! I don't know where you live, but your trees are much prettier than ours at present. (P.S. I'm a bunny lover too.)

Amazing Autumn pictures Susie - what a gorgeous neighbourhood to walk through! Kate sends her hello's ~ she has been so busy lately, and hadn't realized so much time had passed since she last posted (which she says she will do tomorrow) :-} Have a wonderful weekend.

Meggie said...

Sue: Gorgeous photos!! AND, I must ask...how can you post more than 5 photos at a time? I can only post 5 photos in one post.

Pamela said...

you and I have been drinking the same tea.

Except you have some gorgeous pictures.

It is raining cats dogs leaves & limbs here..... so I doubt there will be any pretty colors tomorrow. But I'll be out there looking.

Your photos are fantastic, and as Nature girl says we do not have this colour yet in S. Ontario, we need cooler nights. For now I will enjoy yours.

Sandi McBride said...

Oh wow Susie, that was a wonderful walk, just the kind I need after the friday round of meds...how beautiful the walk, how eloquent the words...

smilnsigh said...

Oh you have so much more color than I do. Thank you for taking me along.

Mari-Nanci

smilnsigh said...

Btw, do you think that my going with you here, on your walk-about, counts toward a real walk for me??????

Nope. -sigh- I just betcha' that a Virtual Reality walk-about, doesn't count. Oh bother!

Thank you, thank you!

BittersweetPunkin said...

Oh...and I went to adopt my virtual pet via your link but they didn't have a rooster...so I left empty handed!
Love,
Robin

Terri said...

How lovely! It looks like your town is a very special one. More a town then a suburb like we have...I like that.

Sophie Honeysuckle said...

Susie-are you sure you're not a professional photographer lol?!!! You should be!! Have a wonderful week-I'll be back to visit as soon as I get back from Florence xx

Well that was so much fun. The colors there are just gorgeous. We don't have anything here with such beauty. Thanks for sharing your walk.

Take care,
Connie

Jafabrit said...

Oh the pictures are just heaven. Wasn't the weather today just glorious. We had guests over for tea in our gazebo and relished the beautiful day. Looks like you had a lovely weekend.

justabeachkat said...

Wow...how very, very gorgeous. If only I could really take a walk with you amongst those gorgeous trees!!! Living in Florida, I sure miss getting to see those sights.

Hugs!
Kat

Melissa said...

Just beautiful - I wish we had colors like that around here! Of course, it was still nearly 90 degrees yesterday, so that could have something to do with it!

carolyn said...

Gorgeous autumn walk, thanks.

gold said...

Those are some beautiful pictures!!

Jolene George said...

When I see amazing pictures like these it really makes me question why I live here in the land of no seasons. You are such a wonderful photographer!

Sheila said...

We don't have the pretty colors here yet like you do! I'm waiting for that. They said on the news yesterday that because we had warmer than usual temps, we're about 7-10 days behind in our pretty foliage. Your pictures are beautiful!

The Decorated House said...

Love these pictures. Have I been here already? LOL I have no idea, but it was worth saying more than once if I have!
