Halloween decor

Because flowers make me happy…

Fall colors

Our massive tree n the front yard…like 4-stories tall!

Aspens

Aspen in our backyard…the color is not brilliant when planted in the city, but I love it anyway…

Fall decor

Our front porch…still need more pumpkins…

Welcome mat

Friends always welcome…

These trees have eyes.

Everyday I walk the kids to (or from) school. I walk by these trees with their bark eyes. Are they following me…

Fall is in the air

Because it was so dry this summer the Aspens are turning earlier than usual. Maybe I will drag the kids (kicking and screaming) up the mountain after church on Sunday. Or, maybe I will trek up on my own next week… It’s not as fun going alone.

Dear Autumn,

Dear Autumn,
Have I told you lately that I love you? 

It’s the crisp air, the colors of the leaves, the pumpkin patch, the color orange, layers and sweaters; and it’s finally being able to dig out my favorite pair(s) of boots in the back of the closet. It’s chili in the crock pot and fresh-made bread. And, living in Colorado, it means ASPEN HUNTING.

It’s the time of year that we plan (the best we can) the route to the high country to maximize our chance for viewing Nature’s brilliant show of color.

Destination: Guanella Pass in Arapaho National Forest, just west of Georgetown.
