autumn inspirations

is this week's topic for studio friday...the question posed is what do you love about fall? i've found this poem, simply entitled, autumn, by carice williams, which nicely sums up why i adore this time of year...autumn autumn days are golden... nights are velvet black... trees and shrubs are flaming from jack frost's attack. autumn walks in beauty neath the golden sun... leaves are playing merry tunes ere their work is done. autumn paints the meadows with a magic hand' then she spreads her beauty over all the land.

    Your pictures are fabulous - a really different perspective. The pumpkin chandelier is the best!

    Great photos - love thr pumpkin on the silo, I don't even want to think how it got there....unless maybe it is a digital trick!

    Wonderful photos to go with the words. I especially like the first photo with the non- autumn colours. Different twist.
    Might I ask where the decorated chandelier was found? Beautiful.

    thank you all for the lovely comments! so appreciated!

    the maple leaves i found while walking the shore of duck trap harbor recently (in maine)during low tide (hence, the rocks you see)...i thought they looked neat against the rocks...

    the pics of the chandelier & cakes were taken while i was at the country living fair a few weeks ago...the fall displays i saw there were AMAZING! it was as if you were literally walking into the magazine itself!

    & the silo with the ginormous jack o' lantern...there is no digital trickery here>>>i happened to stop at this farm to pick up some pumpkins & mums when i looked up & saw that atop the silo! i can't even imagine how that got up there, but i thought i'd better take a pic of it for posterity sake, lol!
