For Dayle's Simple Pleasures: The Colors of Nature's Autumn in New England





The colors of nature in the fall in picturesque New England are among the simple pleasures of life.

How amazing is it to see a usually green bush burst into the deep red flame colors of autumn attire?  It's as if nature is  throwing a party and all the trees and bushes are getting dressed to attend. They wear full, splendorous regalia.



Pale yellow leaves against an azure sky make a startling sight.
Sunshine pouring through a tree ablaze with golden leaves makes the tree shimmer like a golden fairy princess.






To be able to see such enchanting beauty in the fall adds to the simple pleasure.  It makes a person realize what regal gifts they have received on their earthly journey.























Now be sure to hop on over to  Dayle's blog, A Collection of This and That, http://alittleofthisandthat2.blogspot.com/ and check out all the other simple pleasures. Her blog button is in the sidebar, too!

I've always wanted to be in New England for the changing of the autumn leaves. Now, through your pictures, I can be there with you! Lovely, just lovely! Wonderful Simple Pleasure.

It must be very beautiful in New England. I would enjoy the seasons. Where I live we do not have seasons.

I've always wanted to travel north and see the leaf change. Maybe one day! I just don't think we make them like that in the South!!

Joining you at Simple Pleasures.

Breathtaking! I've always thought of autumn's trees in much the same way ... like ladies dressing up in their finest attire. Such a wonderful Simple Pleasures post, Susan. Thanks for always surprising me. :)

Yes, yes, yes... and I'm SO glad you appreciate and love the simple pleasure. I grew up in New England before moving to the south. I miss those gorgeous autumn displays so much. I would love to venture up there one day and catch them.

LOVE your simple pleasure!

So beautiful! We don't get fall in LA and I adore foliage. Just never seen a real autumn in person :(

Jennie said...

Absolutely beautiful. It looks like everything is on fire...and if that doesn't "warm" your soul, I don't know what will! I am a transplant who grew up in the Mid-Atlantic and ended up in the south. One of the few things I miss from "home" is the beautiful fall foliage. Your photos have helped to tide me over. Thank you for sharing!

Hi Susan! I know I've told you before that I have wanted for years, to see New England in the fall! We really do have gorgeous fall leaves here, too...but I guess it's the romance of New England...or the abundance of it...Thanks for the beautiful photos!
