And thinking about the lyrics about the birds getting together, reminded me that
I have just added a new listing for THE BOOK OF BIRDS to my shop, and written a post on my other blog For The Love of Old Books.

Sigh, I can only dream of such beautiful color in the fall, for Houston has only two colors: green and then in December, brown. As for London, their trees don't really change color either--just sort of turn brown and fall. Hope you enjoy every minute of the natural beauty from God's paintbox.

Happy fall,

Oh, my, Karen, this is spectacular! Is that your garden? Really stunning with the beds going along the staircase. Thank you so much for your kind words – I agree – the ocean in autumn is really lovely. I'm glad I was able to experience it this year. Have a wonderful week. Georgianna

Beautiful post Karen and I love how you had the maple leaves here and there! You really have a wonderful talent for the composition on your blog!
And yes now would be the time to come see the leaves. I am in Plattsburgh New York which is a hoot and a holler from Burlington Vermont and all the locals are talking about seeing the foliage over the next week or two! Have fun!

Oh how pretty! It's so beautiful that it makes me sigh... Wonderful frame on that first photo and doesn't the water take on wonderful shades of blue in autumn? Not to mention how cold it looks.

Thank you for this beautiful post, Karen.

You do such a spectacular job with your photographs and your Photoshop. I am going to start "learning' that soon as December is over. Until then, life is a bit crazy. It will be a good project for the long Minnesota winter.
I have you on my Google Reader now so I don't even forget you!
Thanks so much!

Oh the colors are just beautiful. We had such a dry summer this year in Indiana that our leaves are just falling off. I'm afraid it won't be as pretty here this fall. Thank you for sharing the lovely photos.

Hi Karen, I will be up your way next week. I know the peek will be over but I still hope to see some fabulous color and eat some Maine lobster. My husband's relatives all hail from Vermont and we have always wanted to travel up that way one Fall and we are finally doing it. I can't wait. Thanks for the gorgeous photos. xoxo Lynn
