Exuberant :)

Blazing canopy

"Autumn -the year's last, loveliest smile." - William Cullen Bryant
I love change of seasons. I had been missing it for too long.... but when gold and crimson maple leaves cartwheel in the air and cluster around my feet, along the sidewalks, in the doorways of houses, on our cars........I tell myself I will part with the other three in a jiffy, if only it could be autumn around moi year long!!!!!!
They must be the luckiest people in the world to have that happy, colorful driveway all to themselves. Yes, it's a private driveway and yes, I envy the owners.

that is a gorgeous shot of a gorgeous driveway. I think I would find reasons to run errands just so I could come home to that!

PS, my pumpkin is carved like the one on the cover of this month's Southern Living.

Moi, you have outdone yourself this time. This is absolutely breathtaking. I would love this one over my sofa.
Gush...gush. I really love this. Wish we had scenes like that here.
