Festival of Leaves 2019: week 6

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.

Festival of Leaves 2019: week 4

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.

Festival of the Leaves 2019: week 3

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.
