ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 7   VISIT WORDLESS WEDNESDAY  TOO!

                                  

The view of the park that is across the street from my house was magnificent yesterday during sunset. 

 The trees were glowing with the reflecting light of the sun. 

The setting sun made the shadows  long and deep.

It was  pretty,

but pictures can’t do it justice.

I took a ride with my son, his wife and their daughter Gracie to see the beautiful October foliage and to get our pumpkins. 

  We were headed to their friend Matt’s house.  He grows pumpkins and sells them in the barn outside of the farmhouse he is remodeling. 

 He has done a magnificent job restoring this very old home and barn. 

 There is pretty much nothing in the barn right now except for pumpkins

and plenty of them. 

 After a look around we easily settled on a few.  There was one imparticular little pumpkin in the patch that we couldn’t resist…

 she’s a keeper.

My weekend reflection photo is of my husband who is proudly displaying his catches on the Salmon River this week.

I am not sure which reflection is brighter, the water, the fish or the smile! 

If you can take a photo of happiness, this is it.

These trees were so bright red in the sun. 

 They were breathtaking and more beautiful than a camera can show.

“Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.” ~Faith Baldwin


 Nothing new in my garden this week, just the typical fall flowers, like sedum and mums,

 but there’s plenty of fall colors like the nasturtium and marigolds with their bright orange color.

And speaking of color,

we took a drive and the Leaves seem to have turned over night into the blazing oranges, reds and yellows of autumn.

 There may not be many new blooms,

 but these  Leaves and their colors can certainly brightened anyone’s day.

“I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house.�
So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.”~Nathaniel Hawthorne


 On a drive to see the autumn leaves,

we came across an old abandon  house. 

Although it was run down,

 the red front door paint was still vivid and eye catching. 

To me, red never gets old!

 ~”It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. ” ~P.D. James

As I have seen in one Autumnal face.”
