Autumn's Allure

Today let us think of and  pray for all those in the wake of  the devastating Hurricane Matthew. 

The loss of life has already been high.  It must be so frightening with winds that strong.  

And now for today's blog post:

Autumn has got to be the best of all seasons.

Days are cooler, at last, and the sun lights everything up in a most beautiful shade of gold.

The trees are turning into works of art before our very eyes.

Roadside stands and orchards tempt with fabulous displays of pumpkins, gourds and other telltale signs of fall.

Oh, if only we could s-t-r-e-t-c-h this season out to four or five more months, it would be so wonderful, wouldn't it?

The photos in this post were taken last weekend on a trip to Lakeview Orchard in western Massachusetts.

Ahhhhhh, autumn, you are an appealing season, spiced with cinnamon for apple pies. 

They are made from the fruit of your orchards.

Also pungent woodsmoke fills the air and  hints of colder days to come.

The colors are so pretty.

I love Autumn in New England..especially the changing leaves...gorgeous. Today I'm making apple crisp as I LOVE anything with apples. I very seldom make dessert but your autumn post just got me in the mood..ha.
God bless the people in the hurricane areas.

.. I'm an Autumn lover ..... I love the cooler nights and sleeping with the windows open to feel the breeze and just one cuddly throw on the bed for warmth.. the crisp mornings and the day warming up a little.... I'd like Autumn all year round too....

I visited your country in Autumn, I have never seen so many pumpkins before.

What a wonderful place to visit! Your photos are great. I have to say the changing of the trees is my favorite part. And the cooler temps. :) Kit

I think pumpkins are my favorite part of Autumn. I love all the pumpkin goodies too. These are great pictures, Susan. I like how you got them at different angles, very creative. I know what you mean about wanting to enjoy this glorious season for as long as we can.
