Autumn

I heard on The Today Show last week that Pennsylvania is at it's peak for the colored leaves of autumn. I miss the fall colors of the northeast. Red, yellow and orange leaves against a backdrop of deep blue sky, accompanied by the crisp bitey scent of decay and woodsmoke. I miss hearing the leaves crunch under my sneakers as I hike through the woods. Here's a shot Mom and Tom just sent, taken near our cottage in Friendsville, Md.


I've discovered Louisiana has her own brand of beautiful autumn colors. Here's a photo of my favorite fall wildflowers.

Pretty flowers! Here all the flowers are either dead or dying.
I can invite you if you would like, however 1. I don't know your e-mail address, and 2. I'm sure you wouldn't want to read the blog of a teenage girl who isn't a very good writer.
Thanks anyway. Sry for "sneaking up on you". XD
