Autumn Delights..

Have been under the weather for the past week..
am actually beginning to feel HUMAN again..
the weather has been just delightful!..

As I sat on the patio watching the Gulf Fritallaries flitting about,
could not help remembering past Autumns in Colorado.

Across the street from my old home in Denver was the most glorious Maple tree which had been planted forty years prior
when the house was first built.
I watched the tree for the  changing seasons.

Here in Florida, even with the cooler weather, there really hasn't been much change.
My lawn is green..
Palm trees stay green all year do palmettos and pines..
the wild grape vines are beginning to have yellow leaves..
Goldenrod is blooming prolifically as are many other weeds..
hence the abundance of the butterflies tanking on nectar..
closer to the beach are golden sea oats..
October hurries Autumn in with parades of pumpkins..

colorful mums..

and halloweeny decorations..
But, I really miss Colorado when I see photos like these:

Makes me just wanna pick up that phone to make reservations..
I could be there cuddling my BIG boy Brax in under 5 hours....
have a delightful Sunday..
hug someone you love..
smile and the world smiles with you!

  1. Hey Girl!!!! where have you been on your hiatus??? Missed your fun posts. You still in Pensacola?
    true.....we don't have much color change here in the south but we also don't have those blistering cold winters either. I'll take the heat anyday!!

  2. I thought of you today - My daughter was in Denver visiting my sister and flew home this afternoon. Her photos of her visit are gorgeous! Feel better sweetie!


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
