My dearest, these photos are over-the-top perfect; I don't know how you do it. Every one of them is a memory of my first fall in Mass. In L.A., we never saw such color...none for that matter! But it is upon us, I even have a little sore throat, an indication that the season has changed. But a cup of tea and a warm blanket are in order here, and it is well with me!

Have a splendid week, Anita

Love seeing all the fall color--we don't get any of that in Houston, and very little in London either for that matter, so I'm enjoying it vicariously through you.

Happy fall,
