Autumn in Northern Utah

It’s autumn time in the country side. I just want to stay outdoors and soak it all in.

Time for faded blue jeans, brown boots and my favorite Robin egg sweater.

Colors abound; Amber waves amid rust, sage, and apricot.

Wet or crunchy leaves mat the ground, lining up along the road in friendly clumps.

Various textures mingle together; They charm my senses and quietly beg me to capture the moment.

I roam my backyard, ever so gratified with my Creator’s orchestration.

It couldn’t be more perfect, I muse; The natural harmony overwhelms me.

I am deeply, utterly, passionately… content!

I think when I return home from my autumn exploration, I’ll curl up on my deck with the cat and a classic book!

♥ Last week while my son was away at a youth conference, and after I had recovered from a rather traumatic root canal (I had to see a specialist because my tooth’s roots were curvy), there was this glorious autumn day beckoning me to “come out and play”.  With no hesitation, I abandoned all housework, tossed my camera bag (tripod and all), into my car, and drove aimlessly around the back streets of my home town. I stopped here and there and every-which-where. I took spontaneous photos of any and everything that delighted me. Which is your favorite? Thanks for reading and visiting my blog. Happy October! ♥

  1. Gorgeous pictures! I sympathize about the root canal. I had to have 2 in a row on the same tooth because something went wrong the first time, and that was already after seeing the endodontist! Happy autumn!

  2. Housework will always wait for you to return and do it…Autumn leaves…not so much! Good call my friend! 🙂

    I wish we had more reds like you have in Utah. We’re seeing the golds and yellows in the Sierras, and of course the reds in the city from the store bought imported trees, but seeing the reds in the wild…the two are not the same!

    I hope you’re all healed from the root canal!

    1. Thank you, my poor tooth took a few days to settle down before I could chew with it, but it’s good now.

      The red of fall is my favorite. I’m glad you have some fall colors to enjoy there. 🍁
