October is North Carolina’s best month. I grew up in these hills, and though I spent some of my favorite years in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, I always missed this the most about NC.  There is nothing like fall time here!  So, just in case you live somewhere where the leaves don’t turn, I thought I’d share it with you!

The last two Sundays we’ve been out trying to see and enjoy all the color this time of year offers us in the mountains here.  So we wandered up on the parkway one bitterly cold Sunday, along with all the other slow-driving “leaf peepers,” and ate a quick lunch in the car, hunting for color and playing with long icicles.  And we meandered about our own neighborhood the next Sunday afternoon, rooting ourselves in our own soil, seeing all the shades of yellow, green, brown, and red. Someone is finally getting into riding the strider bike and will possibly be getting his own for his birthday.

Fall, we don’t want you to end!  Stay, with all your color and warm light, your crinkling breezes and cool evenings.

One thought on “leaf peeping

  1. I love your photography!

    I read your about page and resonated with your love to take pictures and grasp the moment. My byline for my blog is “delighting in the daily details”. It’s so fun to capture ordinary beauty and breathtaking beauty too, through my camera lens.

    I never thought of myself as artistic either. But in the last couple of years, I’ve realized art comes in many, many forms and I believe our souls need us to take time to invest in and enjoy things we love.
