Autumn Colors


We had a lovely time at Blue Jay Orchard in Bethel, Connecticut, a charming place with picturesque scenic views. Here is a field of pumpkins by a little pond with rustic fences all around. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the reflections in the pond were so pretty. I love early Autumn colors like the deep orange of the pumpkins, the yellow of the corn fields, and the luscious green of the grass. The sky and pond were so blue!


One of my favorite Autumn plants are mums. They are so cheerful and I especially love them in red and yellow. There were some interesting rusty tools in the field, adding to the charm of the scenery. Those rustic wheels make a great contrast with the mums.


Here are pumpkins and mums together, a lovely Autumn combination, don't you think? It makes me want to spend time in the garden planting mums, while a pumpkin pie is baking in the oven! The colors and scents of Autumn are just wonderful.

  14. Cara Loredana,è un piacere vedere l'autunno anche attraverso i tuoi occhi!Qui a parte le temperature che scendono,i colori non sono autunnali...ottobre,nelle belle giornate,può essere scambiato con marzo!C'è tanto verde che domina il paesaggio,ancora,solo la luce del sole è cambiata e vederla tra le foschìe padane è più raro.Un abbraccio e buona settimana.Vedo volti amici del mio blog dentro i tuoi nuovi followers!Sono contenta!!!
