September & Fall

Technically, Fall began on September 21. I’m saying “technically” because in Texas we are still experiencing days in the 90s. Some years, we’ve even hit the 100s. That’s not fun in July, and I really hate it during the fall. But so far this year we’re experiencing a rather mild and wet fall. All the rain is welcome because we had fire scares back in the summer. Nothing like the poor folks in the western part of the country and Canada. Still, scary.

No leaves turning yet. We don’t get color change until late November, sometimes even in December. But oh, I love to see the leaves change. I’m a sucker for all those FB posts that show the glorious colors. You know I’m a fan of New England, but one year we went to the northwest, Washington and Oregon, and they have great color, too.

Do you decorate for the seasons? I do, at least for fall. Love pumpkins, and I set them out all over. And of course, leaves. I’m not one of those folks who is happy to see Christmas decorations out already in the stores. That makes me nuts, but yeah, can’t bring out the fall stuff too early. So, I decided to show you some of my favorite fall pictures. I have a lot of these and will get some more next month when we go to Maine, so I may show more for my October post, if we’re lucky and find good color.

MRW iPhone Oct 2011 080Stowe, VT. It was a warmer fall than usual and we had to drive all the way north to find color.

MRW iPhone Oct 2011 095 Deerfied, MA has a huge number of old homes with people still living in them. I used this house as a prototype for the heroin’s rental in VERMONT ESCAPE

RGW phone Oct 2011 126 The entry of the Woodstock Inn, Woodstock, VT also used in VERMONT ESCAPE. Whenever my family decides to go to Hawaii for Christmas, I’m going to stay in this lovely inn. 

MRW iPhone Oct 2104 513 This gorgeous color makes me smile. It’s also Vermont.

 MRW iPhone Oct 2013 060 The Library in Boothbay Harobr, Maine was a prototype for one  in ACT OF TRUST. 

Are you nuts about Fall or does some other season make you crazy happy? Don’t these pictures make you want to schedule a fall vacation to New England as soon as possible? Love to hear from you.

    Beautiful photos, Marsha. Thanks for sharing!
    We’re in full color fall mode here (Vancouver, Canada), and it never occurs to me that others don’t have a fall like ours… I’ll have to get out and take some pictures to share 🙂

      Hey, Kathryn. Oh, please do take pics and share. Sometimes we get color and sometimes we don’t and as I said it’s generally way later than you think of traditional fall. Look forward to seeing your pics. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.


  2. Beautiful pictures! Like Kathryn, I’m tempted to start taking pictures of autumn in Ontario. 🙂

    I love these pix, Marsha, but especially the tree. It blazes with color. I’ve been known to stop and take pictures of pretty trees.

      Hey, Vicki. In our old neighborhood (before the lakehouse), we had a number of Crape Myrtle trees, and two especially burned red orange in the fall. I frequently had to stop and grab the camera. True tree aficionados are good people. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.


  4. Wow, I’m amazed by the size of those pumpkins in the MA pic! They must have used a tractor to get them there 🙂
    Lovely pics, Marsha. This is my favorite time of year also, so many wonderful colors!

      Hey, Jacquie. Yes, we’ve never seen pumpkins that size either! I’ve seen really large ones they decorate in Demarriscota, Maine. It’s a thing they do. While big, they’re aren’t the size of those in front of the house. Just like you, I love these colors! Thanks for stopping by.
