NOTHING GOLD CAN STAY – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Gold

I live in the land of gold, at least for somewhere around a month every year. Autumn is golden time here in the northeast unless we are rudely interrupted by a hurricane or a very early snow. Sometimes, the gold lasts right through November and finally vanishes in December.

Followed about one week later by a major blizzard. I’m not sure why, but that’s the way it seems to work.

  1. Autumn is my favorite season. Here in Utah, it only lasts about a week, if we are lucky. Beautiful photos, Marilyn. Thanks, as always, for joining the challenge!

    • Ours was just about 10 days long last year. A very short one with a long summer followed by a very long winter. But at least we got a week of spring this year. Sometimes, we don’t get any.

      Usually, fall lasts at least a month, but weather can alter that. Rain ruins it and wind just blows the leaves off the trees!

    • Autumn is definitely THE season here. Spring may or may not actually happen. Sometimes, we get a beauty, but as often as not, it’s cold until one day, it’s summer. It has always been like that in New England so when we really GET spring, it’s great. Generally, though we can count on Autumn. If only it wasn’t followed by winter!
