Friday Fotos – The Changing Seasons

In less than two months, this hill will be covered in snow and skiers.

Check out how our favorite tree is already developing bright red leaves.

With our cold nights, red leaves can be seen all over our mountains.

And not just red - yellow leaves.

But there are also plenty of blooms remaining in our fall.

So fun to hike and see all of the colors.

The pleasures of hikes in our woods.

Colors of all shades.

Hope you enjoy the colors too.

    We are getting all the blooms and blossoms because SUMMER IS COMING! No we’re not excited, why would you ask that?

    Welcome Fall!!! Our prospects are depressing, so we want to revel in yours!

    We’re loving your colors and can’t wait to see the snow!

    with love from the Bleu

    YOu live in such a beautiful place. I bet you guys are excited to get the snow. I think I could wait a bit longer, like two months…..

    Have a good weekend

    We’re just starting to get a little color here, too. I was afraid that all the leaves would just turn brown and fall off the trees this year, so I’m excited. There’s nothing like the colors of Autumn, and it’s my favorite time for hiking!

    With the cooler nights we are seeing here, we are also beginning to feel like fall has arrived. But Mom still misses the glorious hues of the Northeast from her younger years.

    Have a great weekend.

    Beautiful. Our colors are also changing faster and faster. Always like walking out into a rainbow!
