Moving on now and wrapping it up at Festival of Leaves. Thank you Dawn Miller for hosting, and helping us to focus on the beauty around us. I have found that during these challenging days, it is easy to become self absorbed. But observing wild life, and the change of season’s, have contributed to keeping my perspective in a healthier place.. Stay well, all of you leaf hunter’s..
It is week 7 of Festival of Leaves. Joining in today before I get sidetracked.
I am a happy Festival of the Leaves participant. It will help me, to keep my focus on the beauty of Fall, and all of the heartwarming blessings of the season. This was taken yesterday at a local park in the community of McMinnville, Oregon. Thank you Dawn Miller for hosting, once again..
Other than the squirrel pictures from Sunday, these are the most recent photos, from our drive to Portland. Mr. G, had another surgery on October 30th. On this day he got his stitches out. We finally experienced the tram car and this was our view.
In the future, we will not hesitate to use this method of getting from one place to another. You can follow Dawn Miller, to keep up to date, with what’s what, in our world of Fall leaves and color.
Red Ridge Farm, is a delightful place to visit. Since the sun was bright, we made a point of getting out to enjoy the sunshine.
Besides wine tasting, there is a small but charming nursery and a gift shop, with tasty looking treats, books and all of those fun things, that we women like to look at.
For the past few days, the leaves have loosened their grip somewhat, due to the wind, causing them to dance and flaunt their beauty. The leaves on these trees are pretty much intact. Another week of color fun, here in the Willamette Valley. I will hop over to Dawn Miller’s to see what she and other color hunter’s have found.
The days sneak up on me.. and then they are gone.. keeping my eyes peeled for Autumn color fun..
The Willamette River
Continuing on the fall color hunt. I am noticed that in the past few days, trees are dropping their leaves quickly due to the rain and wind.

Joining Dawn Miller and other’s at Lingering Visions
Even though we had been to this state park previously, I think two times, we hadn’t really explored the area. Champoeg State Park, is about twelve miles from where we live. We brought our lunch and I looked forward to what we would discover.
I am posting for Festival of Leaves, with hostess Dawn Miller, who gladly is carrying on this seasonal challenge. This will be a teaser post, because what I discovered beyond this point was very special. So I will leave you with a bit of anticipation, of what I saw and captured, until next time.
as you go about your day..
someone is needing to hear
what you have to say..
it may encourage
the heavy hearted..
and hurting soul..
your sincere words
will make a difference..
and let someone know..
I’m so glad that I live in a world where there are Octobers..
We are on week 3 of Festival of the Leaves. I was fixated on the geese more than color at the time I captured this. My heart gets excited when I see them fly. But change is happening.. Please check out Dawn Miller’s blog, to see what she, and other participants are sharing.
