Fun Fall Critters

Since summer has slipped away, 
we're now delighted by autumn sensations
exploding in a profusion of colors
sensational scents
Jack-o'-lantern faces, dancing pumpkins
sweet glowing papier mache creations 
mixed with chilly air and magical candlelight as our twilight hours rise.

Some horses are so polite that when they come to a fence
they stop and let you come over first!

Witches and Goblins
Bats and party bags
pumpkin and spice tasty delights
and endless falling leaves.


These fun corn and cotton fields are exploding with the cutest critters just waiting to be met.


So many City Street Fests, Corn Mazes 
and other Autumn Festivals to be discovered.
Yep, it's one of my favorite times of the year for
outdoor festive celebrations.

"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
L.M. Montgomery

"Rest and be thankful."
William Wordsworth

Truly there's autumn-ness about that must be treasured
in a bounty of tastes and scents and sights!

Don't delay get out and explore!

It's so good for the soul-

"Even when I'm alone I have real good company-
dreams and imaginations and pretendings.
I like to be alone now and then, just to think over things and taste them.
But I love friendships-
and nice, jolly little times with people."
L.M. Montgomery

Funny thing when you see photos of these corn mazes it's really hard t tell what state you're in sometimes! This is from Alabama and Tennessee but it looks lots like Minnesota too!

Very sweet shots, Karen.

So glad it's cool and dry now. (Of course, there's all those leaves up there, turning brown and waiting to be raked eventually!)
