More colour...this time from Mother Nature.








As you can see the pictures really speak for themselves! Fall is at full gallop here in Maine and the colours are near peak, I will take more photos as the colour develops and post them here for those of you not lucky enough to see this show in it's true glory. These photos were all taken within half a mile of my house...aren't I lucky!!! In order from top to bottom they are: 'traffic light' maple leaves, Blueberry Hill vista looking towards Blue Hill, a view looking up Blueberry Hill, a field by the house, bees (and their knees) at work on the asters (also known as Michaelmas Daisies...Michaelmas Day being September 29th, oops we missed it, and should properly be named the day of Saint Michael and All Angels, apparently it should be celebrated with a goose for dinner, I assume this means the eating of a goose for dinner and not a goose sitting at the table BUT I DIGRESS........), and lovely pink pee gee hydrangea flowers which will turn pale brown but can be cut and kept all year at that point. Happy Autumn!!

The colours of Autumn in New England - what could be better. To suddenly come upon those vivid michaelmas daisies with the bee - that was such a surprise among the oranges, reds and greens of Autumn.
Love your pictures.

Man, what beautiful pictures. I never get out to see the foliage in New England (mostly because I don't have a car) but it's nice to live vicariously through you. You mentioned Blueberry Hill. I seem to remember reading a children's book when I was little called Blueberries for Sal and I thought it took place in Maine I know, it's a tangent. I love all the brilliant colors on your blog.

You live in such a beautiful place, it reminds me of the Scottish Highlands but more colourful. It must be very inspiring.
