Fall is………

fall on the hillsI grew up in south Florida and have spent most of my adult life in Houston, so experiencing fall in Maine is a special treat.  As many of you have said, fall means cooler temperatures and changing leaves.  While that is true, fall is much more than that to me.blueberry field, fall

Fall is fields of wild blueberries glowing brilliantly under a shining sun before slumbering for the winter.

pumpkinsFall is pumpkins of every size, shape and texture.

Rockport HarborFall is watching the harbor as one by one boats disappear until there are just a few whose hearty owners will brave a few more cool afternoon sails.

fall/hydrangeaFall is hydrangea trees with blooms that change from white to dramatic pink in their final weeks

fall/woodFall is wood cut and stacked to keep winter fires burning.

fall/sunsetFall is having my breath taken away by the drama of sunsets which change from summer pastel to rich, deep tones that color both sky and water.

fall/sunsetMost of all fall is taking in the wonder of all that is around me and wishing that it did not signal the end of the time we spend in Maine each year.

  12. Fall has always been my favorite time of year with all the beauty and glory of Mother Nature’s glorious sigh as she prepares to tuck in her trees and plants for a long winter’s nap. Fall in North Carolina comes a little later than in Maine but is just as beautiful. I love, love, love traveling to the mountains each fall and experiencing the vivid colors splashed across the hills and down into the valleys. Just breathtaking! Your photos captured fall in Maine beautifully. Thanks for sharing.
