Ahhhh…. thank you. Simply beautiful. 🤍
Thanks, Susan. I thought about you and your daughters quite a bit while wandering by the lake out there yesterday.
Beautiful! We’re just getting started here in the NW Lower peninsula. Nature has a way of asserting herself and reminding us of what really matters in our puny human lives. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your lovely shots!
Wsquared, very wise thoughts indeed. I’ll bet it’s going to be beautiful for you in the upcoming week. All of a sudden you have me missing that ride from the UP downstate. Take care!
Your colors are ahead of ours here on Beaver Island, but they change rapidly every day. Your photos are stunning! Thank you!
Cindy, it was kinda a miracle that the sun kept peeking through the illuminate the colors. Thank you–and know you’ll be in beautiful peak color on your island very soon.
I love fall colors!
Me too, Sherry! It can remind us that there’s still a lot of beauty in the world even with everything that’s going on.
These are just beautiful…just what I needed. My favorites are the view on Townline Road, and the Leaves, Rocks, Lake Color. I am feeling a little stressed, as husband’s brother, who has been staying with us for the past week after being in the hospital for 4 days, tested postive last night for Covid. Sigh. So we will try to get tested today. We stayed so careful, didn’t do any number of things we wanted to, stayed home, washed our hands, wore our masks, but we also knew he couldn’t go home from the hospital alone, so offered him space here. And so here. we are. I’m exhausted already.
Oh Dawn, I am so sorry to hear this news. Can see why you are stressed. Your poor brother-in-law. Poor you guys. I know how careful you’ve been all these long months. But you opened your heart and provided him space to recover, and now this happened. Hopefully you both will post negative. Surrounding you in loving care, and hoping for the best outcome for everyone. xoxo
Oh Dawn, I hope you’re all okay. Kindness should not be rewarded with Covid. Hugs.
Oh Kathy, these are all dazzling! I especially love “Leaves, rock, lake, colors.” Heart-stirring. Autumn peaks so quickly we have to savor every moment. ♡
That picture is one of my favorites, too, Barbara. I love how it turned out. We can see–just in the space of a day–how quickly things are changing around here. We can’t close our eyes or we’ll be learning to admire the bare bones of skeleton trees far too quickly.
How beautiful! Thanks for sharing your views. We are still bathed in green here, but that’s not a complaint. The temperature and humidity have been low. XOXO
Stacy, it’s mostly thanks to you–and a couple others–that I went out yesterday searching for pictures. You did ask me. Was gonna say “dedicated to Stacy” but thought that might be going too far. Ha ha. Glad you have low temps and humidity down your way.
Oh Kathy, thank you so much! I desperately needed that pause and the deep breath, with the stunning views of nature’s glory. There is nothing like the colors of fall, the fresh air, the calm and quiet. I need some ocean time – but it seems unwise. Sigh.
Glad you could pause and admire some of nature’s beauty, Carol. I really get that yearning to have ocean time. Wish it was next year and perhaps all this craziness was behind us. Hopefully? I had a strong yearning to travel downstate to see Mom yesterday, but on second thought it’s not wise either. And she really doesn’t want me to come until assisted living opens up. Double sigh.
You write so beautifully. You really should put all these postings into book form and publish them. I wish someday to write beautifully.
Earthcomplex, what a lovely thing to say! I know others have said this over the years, but I haven’t yet felt the calling to do so. Publishing here feels enough–for now. Just keep practicing your writing (and learn to write from your personal voice and heart) and you will find your writing way. xoxo
appreciating your goodness and kindness and beauty ❤
We are a mutual admiration society, Larissa, aren’t we? ❤
Absolutely stunning fall photos. Thanks for sharing.
So glad you enjoyed the autumn pictures–you are welcome!
Oh Kathy, wow! Just wow! The colours of the leaves, the mist hovering over the water, your gorgeous autumn tree lined road. Wow. *sigh* It’s all so beautiful. ❤
It really is “wow” out there at this time of year. Breath-taking color, even the yellows. All too soon the tree branches will be skeletons, so it’s always a most bittersweet beauty.
There’s beauty in the bare branches too when you consider the green leaves that will cover them in spring. It’s the miracle of Nature. 😊
I LOVE bare skeleton branches. They are so zen, so bare bones, so revealing. The miracle of nature, as you say!
Beautiful Kathy! Thank you so much for sharing! We are getting cool crisp nights here in NC now and a little color too! I adore fall. We’ve been enjoying the beautiful moon every evening and in the early morning. All our farm animals seem to appreciate the cooler weather as well. I love your posts, stay warm up there!
Gay, I am so glad you enjoyed. (You and a few others are a main reason I headed out with the camera the other day. Just so you can breathe in the UP again.) Yes, isn’t the moon lovely? Imagining you with your farm animals right now. Let’s keep enjoying fall to the fullest!
Your photos are beautiful. Such natural colors and such a delightful respite from the daily angst. Thank you.
Indeed, Ally Bean. And many of us need respite these days!
Loved going on that walk vicariously with you and all the sights and wonders you pointed out!
So glad to have you along for this little fall walk, Lunar!
Beautiful. We are still waiting for some fall weather here in California. Can’t wait!
Thanks for reading and commenting. Glad you enjoyed, and hope you get some fall weather in California soon. And no more fires!
After looking at your beautiful captures, I want to fly back east and walk through Haliburton and take in all the gorgeous colours!
Hi, and thank you for your kind comment! (I had to google Haliburton and see where it is–apparently it’s in Ontario, across from our Lower Peninsula. I imagine the colors are beautiful there, too.) It’s a lovely time of year.
Your beautiful post brought back some fond memories…
It is so beautiful it make me want to cry, in a good way
Oh, Tilly–that is so lovely! A good cry sometimes cleanses us so beautifully.
Simple yet magical photos. Love them. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks, Lori. Already today some of the colors are starting to dim. Other places they’re still going strong.
beutifull nice place
Thank you, Christine!
Ahhh, it’s beautiful out in your neck of the woods, Kathy. I too hope that winter does not arrive too quickly for you.
It had better not! Hopefully it will stay at bay for awhile longer… Quite often we get a snow in October, but it doesn’t stay on the ground for too long. I am voting for November!
The forest in all of its glory is a sight to behold. How fortunate for you to live among such beauty.
Thank you, Yvonne. I was hoping all was OK with you. So glad to see you stop back here and admire our fall beauty. It is gorgeous in our neck of the woods at this time of year.
My computer was ill so that is why I have not been commenting. But I have been using y cell to access FB and CNN and a few other sites. I don’t know how to hook WP and my email to cell but I am going to have a computer expert do some work on my cell and my computer- I hope in the not too distant future. Do you have a FB account? Some of the folks that I follow on WP are on FB so they knew that I was alive and coping.
Yes I do. You can find me by searching for a Kathy Drue. I would love to be your Facebook friend. Sometimes I am on there…not always. Would love to know that you are alive and coping.
OK, I just saw this where you wrote your last name. Thanks you, I will hop over there in a few. I am up late tonight since I fell asleep at 8pm and awoke at 10pm. I post nearly every day- usually several things shares, mostly rescue stuff. I never get into politics on my personal page because of my affiliation with many rescues. I want to remain in good standing with all the reds in Texas. I will PM you some folks that I follow who are very blue. I comment on those sites.
We should be good to go when you accept my friends request!
I think that I did that last night – Tuesday 10/14/20.
wonderful kathy your a wonderwomen/an thank you so much for sharing
Not sure about being a wonderwoman–but glad you enjoyed!
