Pumpkins in all shapes and sizes welcome in the season.

And then there are the leaves changing colors and a hint of a cool Fall breeze in the air.

I took a drive today to capture the beginning of Fall here in New England for Rhondi's party.

I love to drive down country roads this time of year,

and see the leaves falling as you admire Autumn views.

Today is the first day of Fall and welcoming in the season is a perfect thing to do. Thank you Rhondi, you always create lovely parties for all of us to enjoy.

Hi Karen
Your photos of fall are beautiful. It's still a little early here, but there is a tree here and there with a little color on it. I love the creative ways you put your posts together. Thanks for joining the party. It just wouldn'r have been a party without you!
Hugs, Rhondi

Welcome fall!

It's raining here and our first *cold* front (meaning the temps will be in the low 80's instead of the low 90's). I'll take it!

Karen, what amazing photos! And of course your magical artistic touches make them all the more special! We don't have much color in the trees here in Texas so we appreciate you sharing the beauty! Have a great week.

Those are not only really pretty pictures, but I love how you tweaked them. I'm going to have to learn how to do that.

Isn't New England just gorgeous at this time of the year? Not that it isn't in summer or spring or winter but the riot of colors!!

I like the way you combine your photos with details - it must take some time!

Karen, somehow I missed this when Rhondi had her party. I so enjoyed all your photos of fall in New England. Texas doesn't get much change of color for the seasons, but we are finally having cooler weather. Thanks for sharing! ~ Sarah
