A golden glow


Some Autumns are just prettier than others 

This happened to be one of those years



Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all other seasons

~ Jim Bishop





Exeter looked particularly lovely bathed in a golden glow as I strolled through town in my flip-flops on a warm afternoon.




In our own yard the leaves fell fast, furious and plentiful. Corralling them as quickly as possible is always the goal of my husband. Leaving a pile for the dogs to run through is a must, at least for a couple weeks anyway.











The oranges, the reds ... oh my! Framed by a blue sky the trees look amazing!





Autumn blazes full speed ahead. Each fleeting day a difference can be seen in color and light. The golds of the leaves can only be matched by the golds of late afternoon shadows.












May Autumn be as beautiful where you live as it is here in New England. 

Though I doubt it ...  ; )

Thanks for sharing the beautiful colors of Fall in your part of the country. Some color here, but not as much as you have now.
Hope you are having a great week.

It certainly is beautiful there with all the golden glow around. I love the photos of the big old maples, the old houses and the leaves on the ground. Gorgeous!

Since we really don't have fall in Arizona, I'm loving your pictures, Sharon! I also like your new blog header - so pretty!

Beautiful as always Sharon! We're having a spectacularly beautiful fall here too. Every color seems deeper and brighter than I ever remember. But alas, soon they will all be down and ready for raking - such is life.
Thanks for sharing a wee bit of New England!

Fabulous. The reds in Southwest lower Michigan aren't very pretty this year but the yellows are beautiful.

Just gorgeous & my favorite season. But, as I live in the desert, I rarely get to see such beauty in person. Autumn is simply magical.
