in Search of Autumn...


We went to the east coast, to Massachusetts and to Maine, looking for Autumn. We walked among tall beautiful old trees on foggy roads, treading carpets of colorful leaves.


We saw the cool moist ocean with it's crashing waves.


We carved pumpkins, visited fall festivals, and hiked the woods with our jacket-clad grandchildren.


We saw forest floor ferns that had taken on their autumn cast.


It was all beautiful.

But I knew that I had truly found autumn when we drove down our own street and found that autumn had arrived at our very doorstep while we were away. Welcome HOME to autumn!
