Autumn Blessings

The Autumn is so pretty here in Northern California.  I have been making it a point to notice all the colors and changes that the season brings us here.  We have the golds and the reds, but I see mostly the oranges around this time of year.  Here are a few pictures of Autumn at its best around my neck of the woods.

I hope you have a restful Sunday.

Sheri, I am glad you live where you can see the seasons. Maple trees give us such awesome colors at autumn. We better enjoy our fall here in Indiana this week. The leaves are falling. Blessings for a beautiful Sunday there. Love you, xoxo, Susie

Autumn is so pretty in your area, Sheri. The maple leaves are so colorful! My maple tree leaves are still green. Your photo of the moon is gorgeous. I hope you are enjoying the season as you are getting settled in your new place! ♥

Good morning dearest Sheri!

EVERY SEASON has something to teach us. Every season has its own array of colors that bring out joy. Autumn and spring are those short seasons that spurt out a transition that we have to enjoy in a very short time in order to usher in a long, hot summer or a long, cold winter. It has been a marvelous season. Come to my Instagram to see my part of the world!

Oh what deliciousness in the colours of Autumn Sheri. Love the pink tree in No. 1, and that delicate yellow/green bird. Gorgeous. Have a good week xx

Karen said...

I especially like the one of the different colors of leaves scattered on the ground. Have a nice Monday!

Hello dearest Sheri!!! Thank you for coming to my post again...the fruit in the oil painting that my Auntie Camille painted look like oranges. It's an old painting and I love it!! Thank you for visiting my Instagram!

What a variety of pictures with the sunlight giving it the right contrast.
Like the moon shot.

Good Morning Sheri,
You always have the sweetest spirit and loving heart that captures the beauty all around you.
Thank you for sharing these lovely photos of Fall.
I don't think that I told you this, but my Amanda and her family are leaving California for Puerto Rico!
Puerto Rico is considered a "hardship tour," and it will enable them to get back home to us in just a couple of years.
Sending love and wished for a good week,
Jemmma

Good Afternoon Sheri, What a joy, I loved seeing how Autumn looks in your part of the world.
Here the leaves are also changing colour and some are falling from the trees. Autumn is a lovely season, with so much colour.
At the moment, I am busy sweeping up the leaves which are falling... it is such a shame to put them on my brother in law's compost heap.... but they will be recycled to enrich the soil.
Have a lovely day.
Best Wishes
Daphne

Dewena said...

Beautiful photos, Sheri! That first one proves that pinks do exist in autumn leaves even though I've never seen them. And you've moved? You can tell I've been away from blogging too long, but your new town has lovely views too. I hope you're settling in nicely.
Love to you,
Dewena

There's so much beauty where you are Sheri! The shades of pink are a true delight. Something I don't see too often this time of year.

Autumn is leaving us rapidly this year I'm afraid. It's snowing as I type this!

Autumn is my favorite time of year and your pictures are wonderful. Sweet little yellow bird tucked in among the leaves, too.
