Photostory Friday~ This Year


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

During the week, twice a day, my truck takes a trip up a very steep hill. The path leads to the house of the person who provides loving, nurturing care to my sweet Sugar Bear, while I'm at work.

Usually, the petal is to the metal, and we are steaming along in a hurry to GET THERE. Either I'm needing to drop off the Sug and get to work, or I'm hustling to pick her up and get to dance, or head home. Always in a rush.....ALWAYS.

This Fall, there has been such an amazing sight, that I look forward to setting my eyes upon during that time of rush. I find myself smiling before I even get there. I lean forward with anticipation, and a quick intake of my breath announces it's arrival each time.

On the last block, before I hit the top of this mighty hill, on a wonderfully made cement brick wall, the brightest, and most amazing fiery RED ivy is growing. My eyes perk up at the sight, and my heart beats a happy tune, as I admire it's beauty.

Each and every time I pass by thinking, "Oh how I'd love to capture THAT!" And each time I look at the clock and shake my head with the knowledge that it won't be today. Until.....one day....it was the day. The sun was low in the sky, and the autumn glow was lighting the scene. I had the time....and the time was right....and it was GOOD!

While I took my sweet time to capture it's story, the owner happened to walk by, and exclaim, "Amazing isn't it? I can hardly wait for next year!"
Me either....but frankly, I'm still enjoying THIS year.

Beautiful. I actually saw the most vibrant orange tree the other day and have been meaning to take a picture of it ever since. The falls colors are so beautiful.

Ah Corey...these are gorgeous. Red is my favorite fall color. All the other autumn hues, though beautiful, convey death and decay. But red...red says LIFE!

Marcelle said...

wow what a beautiful color...here in Germany the beautiful autumn colors are over...Germany looks very ugly and depressing at the moment.
