  1. The trees do look like they are on fire when they turn that vibrant shade of orange & red. Gorgeous picture Nancy.

    I find there are many more golds and yellows this year than the bright reds — some say it requires a heavy frost to get that deep red color. Possible. :)

  2. How lovely Nancy. I see ‘autumm fire’ here in the woods (almost at its peak) and will enjoy dragging fall back home, blessed to enjoy each season from a 2 week point of view.

    Each season definitely has its own beauty, and I embrace them all. :)

  3. A very exciting photo Nancy. The quote goes with it perfectly.

    Exciting is the perfect word for it — the flowers are blooming ‘frantically’ and the trees are turning color ‘excitedly’. Perhaps that is why it is referred to as a “riot” of color. :)

  4. Stunning. When the end of summer comes, I often feel sad. But once the colours in the leaves start to change, I realise how lucky I am to live in a climate that has such different seasons.

    Amen to that — we are very lucky to have four distinct seasons!

  5. I haven’t seen fall colors that vibrant for years, living where I do now. Thanks for reminding me.

    Things were so wet and, therefore, lush this summer that the trees are hanging onto their leaves long enough to really set out some beautiful color. Last summer, most of the leaves blew off the trees before we saw much color at all.

  6. That is a perfect picture Nancy .. so many beautiful places in N.S. to see this time of year .. and the Cabot Trail must be amazing .. yes to the Cicken Bones girl !! LOL

  7. Oh, my gosh I’m so behind in reading blogs. This photo is, as usual, exquisite!!! I wish I were there to soak that sight in!
