Autumn Splendor

Before we moved to Georgia, I had no idea what to expect with regard to weather and seasons. Bordering Florida to the north, I didn't expect the seasons to be similar to northern climes.



Georgia winters can produce unexpected snow and ice; spring appears early; and summers are less humid than Chicago. My favorite season by far is autumn.


I love the rich, earthy scent of changing leaves...


...but it's the colors that fascinate me most...


...against a brilliant cerulean blue sky...

(BTW, the photo above was not altered or enhanced. This was SOOC. The sun was at just the right angle to capture the colors)

What's your favorite season?

Beautiful pictures mom! I too love fall. I long for cool days, jeans and sweatshirts. I love outdoor activities when there's a slight chill in the air. Halloween and Thanksgiving are my two most favorite holidays as well. Bring on the fall!

The bottom picture is my favourite it is such an amazing colour - is it really that colour? I think Spring has to be my favourite season although I love them all. But there is nothing like the excitement of finding the first celandine in the hedge back in February and knowing it is just the beginning.

the second from the bottom photo is really well done. it's all about lighting, isn't it.

Love the leaves, so pretty. My favorite season is Spring because it means warmer weather and sunny days.
