fall leaves . . .

I love Fall . . . and all the beauties that it brings forth.

             I brought these Fall leaves home with me from my recent trip to Solvang.  

When my family asked me what my favorite part of the trip was, I answered . . . 

              . . . . the Fall foliage! It was glorious this year. The rolling hills were 
covered in bright oranges and red, as well as deep burgundies. Everywhere!

              . . . . the rustling leaves!  The sidewalks and streets were filled with piles of brown leaves that had recently fallen from the towering trees that line the charming streets of Solvang. When the late afternoon and evening winds blew, hundreds of leaves would tumble across the streets as though they were dancing. It was truly a magical sight, especially at night when the trees above were lit up with twinkling white lights.

             . . . .  and the vineyards! Oh, the vineyards! So many of the rolling hills of Central California are covered in vineyards now. . . as far as the eye can see; and what makes them so stunning this time of year are the changing colors of the grape leaves. Imagine rolling hills of gold, orange, red, and deep burgundy. Everyone should drive through wine country in the Fall . . . . It is truly Fall, at its most beautiful. And if you do, be sure to pack a picnic so that you can enjoy it roadside . . . and relax while you admire God's work. 

What's your favorite part of Fall?

LET'S STAY in touch!


  1. You know, I was actually just thinking about this last week as I was walking my granddaughter to school. I love the fresh crisp air mingled with smell from the leaves piled up. Its the gorgeous colours and the nostalgic sound off rustling leaves.
    Wishing you a wonderful week, your new follower, Darlene

    1. So happy that you came by and shared, Darlene!
      This time of year is too short not to stop and admire the trees and changing leaves.

  6. God does put on an amazing show in the Fall! I love the leaves and the mountains here are simply stunning! I also love the little bit cooler temps. I have some leaves being pressed in a book right now. Hoping to do a nature book during the long cold winter. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. Your fall and my fall are completely different yet we live in the same state. No fall leaves to be seen on my part of the coast.

    The colors of your leaves are beautiful.

  8. I love your fall leaves in a white pitcher. I think the foliage is also my favourite part of fall, although in Brittany this year, it's just been turning to its gorgeous colours a few weeks ago as the fall was unusually mild.

  9. Beautiful leaves and photos. I think the leaves are my favorite part too and the smell of crisp air with a hint of someone's fireplace in the air.

  10. So pretty! Thanks for sharing at Silver Pennies Sundays. x
