So Long November

so long november

where did you go?

i guess you were in the fast lane

and I was in the slow

distracted was i

but ever true were you

to grace us the dance of leaves

from earth’s many, beautiful trees..

Festivals of the Leaves 2019: week 9

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.

 

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.

 

Not Wordless Today

Downtown, in this very humble place..

Just a side note.. The small point and shoot camera I am using is on it’s way out. I am having to crop a black smudge in the photos. This camera has been very well used and very handy, but not all things last forever.
