An affair with Autumn
by Karla ° Friday, October 17, 2008
I went for a solo hike through the conservation area up the road this morning. And while the tip of my nose turned salmon pink and nature painted a sun-kissed glow over my cheeks with a brush dipped in the vibrant freshness of crisp Autumn air, I think, for the first time in a very long time, I felt myself breathing deeply and breathing with purpose.

Autumn has officially arrived this year on the seasonal fashion runway and initial reports seem to indicate she's wearing her most vibrant copper-hued harvest dress yet.

And while girlfriend struts her stuff, she’s so kicking the warmth of Summer’s sunny yellow ass to the curb and leaving him to hibernate in the dust of her befrosted fallen leaves.

As much as I want to cling to Summer, Autumn sure does smell nice. So nice, in fact, that I spent the morning inhaling her sweet scent and frolicking in her leaves.

When Mark gets home from work, I’m so going to have to explain all of the remnant red and orange bits on my collar.

Those are gorgeous photos Karla ~ and the clouds in them are just amazing too.
Autumn is well and truly under way here in the UK too.

They're awesome!! I love the leaves/sky one in the middle! Hey, remember that time you posted the picture of the tulips and there were seven of them and they were pink and beautiful and I thought that was cool??

Well, that lone leaf in the distance in that middle pic reminded me instantly of your other balloon pictures... and of the time when I let that balloon go for Ava.

Take it as you will, and obviously they're your messages to decipher, but.. I think she's around...

I do remember you saying that about the tulips Alison. I think you're right. Ava's around in her own special way.

Anonymous, I actually don't use a filter on my camera, but I do use photoshop actions. I love actions!
