Festival of Leaves 2020~week 10

I hope that this Thanksgiving Day has been a peaceful one for you.. Yesterday we ventured out with a particular place in mind to take pictures. It was closed to the public, so we went with plan b. It satisfied my appetite for photo ops. Festival of Leaves is special and if I were a poet, I’d write about why. Maybe some day.. What I can say, is don’t let life pass you by, rehashing the past. Sometimes old stuff will bog us down. Let go and invite new into your life..

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.
