Although it’s still winter I can’t help but think about how nice it will be when it’s spring. And spring means cheery, colorful flowers. I thought I’d create a scene with lots of flowers and gardens to help get through the rest of the winter. It’s a reminder that it won’t be long before there are blue skies, warm sunshine and the beginning of a new season.
I’m looking forward to spring – the sooner the better!
I started Meg Travels back in 2011, and after taking a break started posting again this fall. I also started a new blog in September called Meggie’s Adventures that shares family stories and even explains why I have always loved flowers, travel and ice cream (and gelato)! It’s been fun and I’m looking forward to seeing you there. I’ve also been working on travel plans for the future and look forward to more adventures.
A couple of years ago I was in Colonial Williamsburg to see the autumn foliage. I didn’t expect to see so much greenery in November, but it was a delightful day and many people were out walking wearing t-shirts, shorts and sandals. I didn’t think it was that warm but I ended up carrying my jacket after walking for a couple of hours. Here are some of the sights.
With everything still so green I wondered if I’d see any fall foliage. I did find this tree on one of the streets and the colors were lovely.
I’ve been admiring autumn leaves for a long time. When I looked back I found these pictures from some of my blog posts between 2014 and 2016 that show many of the times that I photographed colorful leaves.
I’ve been looking for a pumpkin to put on my front porch. It was fun and interesting taking a walk on a sunny October day and seeing all these possibilities. But with this many choices it was difficult making a decision!
