FOTD – March 20 – Almost spring yet dreaming of Fall

It could be because fall brings our best weather, but I think it’s the colors that enchant me. The warm orange, red, pumpkin, and yellow. The wonderful color shifts as a green leave turns scarlet then gently slides into yellow. The colors of gourds and pumpkins.

The shining canal is covered with fallen leaves. It’s all about the light — and those colors!

New England has always been the best place to see Autumn. On a good year when we don’t have hurricanes, torrential rains, or early snows, we get a few weeks of weather perfection. The Blackstone Valley is one of the great places for leafing. Long before I lived here, we used to drive up from New York to this valley to see the changing leaves.

And so, taking a momentary break from blooming crocuses — the rest of our “missing crocus” have turned up where they belong, so now we have two sets in the garden and on the ground in front of the garden wall — I’m remember the river and canal in October. But first? Let’s have spring!

  1. Sorry Marilyn. Completely focused on Spring now.
    Winter doesn’t make an exit around here though without a
    couple of snowy goodbyes.

    • Yes, here too. It’s cold again, but the birds are mating and there are a lot of buds and shoots coming up. WE may be cold, but nature will have her way. And aren’t we glad of that!


  2. Autumn is my favorite time. But yes, hello Spring! It’s been my dream for years to visit New England; particularly in Autumn. Why haven’t I when I’ve been to the entire rest of our country? I really must make it reality! Your pictures are amazing.

    • Well, should you ever decide to come this way, let me know. Maybe that would convince Garry to clear out the guest room!! He has made some progress, so where there’s life, there’s hope.

      Come during October. it’s THE best time to be here (unless there’s a hurricane.)
