    Mother nature has flipped the fall foliage switch to fabulous (typing that word makes me nervous lol).
    Would it be ok to call it, "Mother Nature's Pride parade". I hope it is as spectacular from you hail.

    I look forward to the run off of the maple sap near spring and now this time of year.

    anyone else soak up the colour conscienceness of the leaves changing colour?

    I went to New England last fall to see the autumn colours. It was really beautiful! Miss it now!

    Autumn certainly is colourful and the occasional temperate day is an embraceable blessing. I try to enjoy every possible moment on my front porch. However, the impending death of nature for a few months, is always a difficult time of year to accept.

    I see hope again at the end of January, when we have gained an extra hour of daylight after the winter equinox.

    Just spent the weekend in southern Ohio. It's absolutely beautiful, all rolling hills, rivers and trees, and the trees are just starting to change color. It's funny how loud a falling leaf can sound on a tent.

    I drove through the Laural Highlands in Pennsylvania last weekend and the first touch of fall had made its way into the higher elevations... still waiting for some color here in DC.

    Just drove through Eastern Connecticut on the way back to Boston from New Haven, and the colors are changing there too. Not peak yet, but it's looking nice.

    Burlington is surrounded by the Niagra Escarpment which is luch with trees and all the leaves start to change now. It's going to be brilliant in another week. Me and my friend have already made plans to go hiking up there next weekend.

    I love fall.. because it leads up to Christmas icon_biggrin.gif

    OMG, you torment me, here in South Florida. I grew up in New England, with a family summer home in Vermont in the 1950s & early 60s.

    I'd spend each Fall taking long motorcycle trips through the NE states, on 2-lane back roads. Sometimes I'd ride onto the shoulder, and drag my foot through the heaps of leaves naturally piled there, plowing them up into the air.

    I've seen Fall in every one of the northern tier states, but nothing has ever equaled New England. We may be spending Christmas in New Hampshire with a gay couple at their "summer" home this year, when they reopen it for the holiday, but it won't be the same as Fall.

    Gawd, what I'm missing in stupid Florida!

    Now that we've cleaned up after hurricane force winds caught Ohio by surprise two weeks ago, the colors of fall are appearing. Still enjopying summer temps during the day, with cool autumn nights.Perfect for a ride on the hilly country highways in a convertible.

    Thanks for the thoughts and pictures of this truly spectacular fall season. I am happy to hear the hurricane ravaged areas are breathing live and light again. It gave me perspective and I am more appreciative of what I see, breathe and experience.

    Nature’s Prescription

    "Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each...... For all Nature is doing her best each moment to make us well. She exists for no other end. Do not resist her. With the least inclination to be well, we should not be sick. People have discovered, or think that they have discovered, the salutariness of a few wild things only, and not of all Nature. Why, Nature is but another name for health".
