Autumn Here and There

I was in Colonial Williamsburg yesterday to see the autumn foliage.  I didn’t expect to see so much greenery, especially since it’s November!  It was a delightful day and many people were out walking in 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 from yesterday.

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.

November Scenes

I’ve been in different parts of Virginia over the past few weeks and the change in the trees has been remarkable.  When I was in Williamsburg at the beginning of the month there was a lot of color in the leaves and shrubs.  A nursery at Colonial Williamsburg had rows of greenery and potted plants for sale.  Last week I was in the mountains and saw the Natural Bridge.  It was quite impressive even though the leaves were gone.  Still, the trees can be dramatic even without leaves.

Now is also a good time to look forward to all the upcoming holidays.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Autumn Leaves

Last Sunday afternoon I went to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia to see the fall colors.  I picked a good day for a visit because this is what I saw.

Autumn colors are everywhere.

Sometimes it isn’t necessary to say too much about your subject.  The scenery is simply perfect.
