This is the front entrance to my neighborhood right now. So pretty! The photo just can't do it justice. I'm so glad to be living somewhere that has beautiful fall colors. Well, even though I've actually been living in this area for almost nine years now, haha. Where I grew up in Texas, the trees just turn a drab brown before dropping their leaves. But this...this is just lovely.
I had actually wanted to take this picture yesterday. When I was coming home from doing groceries yesterday, I drove through here and thought, "Wow, so pretty!" So after dropping off the groceries, I grabbed my camera and walked back out to the entrance. Then I turned on my camera...only to discover that I'd forgotten that I hadn't put the memory card back in yet. I literally almost physically went OTL. I certainly was doing that inwardly! I didn't want to walk back home and all the way back out again, especially since it was late afternoon and I didn't know how long I'd have the right lighting, so I decided to just hope that the leaves would still be on the trees the next day. So here we are! Had to get this in before that arctic blast gets down here in a couple days. Brrrr!
I hope you guys live in places where you, too, can enjoy the beauty of this season! <3
