Now that's red

Cordata Parkway
I found this beautiful picture on the LoveBellingham page on Facebook, with no attribution to the photographer. It was taken last week, and by now many of those leaves must have fallen, since we had a breezy day yesterday and leaves were coming off the trees like confetti. The colors this year have been spectacular.

This morning we ladies walked a five-mile loop around the college campus and enjoyed the colors, as well as swishing through the fallen leaves. We've just been through a rather wet period, but for the next few days it should be sunny, cool, and just plain lovely. Every part of the globe experiences moments when you wish you could stop the clock and simply gaze, enjoying the beauty. This is ours, right here right now.

  2. Stunning photo - and a glorious time of year. I think of it as Goldilock's time 'not too hot, not too cold, but just right'.

  10. Wow, those colors are amazing. Each year here I have to remind myself that brown really is a color. Don't think I went far enough north. Enjoy that beauty.

  13. Color is still clinging to the trees in front of our house. But the end is near. However, the photos will live on...

  14. Dear DJan, yes, those moments when we simply want to gaze are true gifts. I find myself not only wanting to gaze but to absorb, through all the pores of my body, the beauty before me. Peace.
