A Walk in the Park

It's really starting to look like autumn here, so I thought you might enjoy taking a walk in the park with me.  This park, called Natirar, is about ten minutes from our Little Red House, and we like to stop by occasionally to walk the trails, which wind through a beautifully landscaped former  estate.  

There is a subtlety to the color of these trees.  I love their soft color.  No flames here  yet, just gentle blushes.

Part of the walking path takes us through the woods, where the trees drape their graceful arms over a gurgling stream.  Wearing their leaves of gold, they seem to glow with an inner light.

All too soon, there will be more leaves underfoot than above our heads.  Carpe diem.


I wanted to tell you all how much I enjoyed reading all about your autumn favorites on Monday.  Thank you so much for painting such lovely pictures with your words!  There was even a beautiful poem among the comments -- thanks, Cheryl!
