Dreaming..

I was blown away when, I drove up to my parents home this past week-end, and noticed their Pecan tree with an explosion of yellow fall like colors. It took my breath away because here, in the valley trees don't change color. I felt for a second what it would be like, in the Autumn, if I had lived in a small quiet city up north where all the town's people gather for a fall harvest festival. If I closed my eyes at that moment, I probably could smell the cool crisp air of the fall, as it gently blows the cotton panels of an opened window...

  1. Simply breathtaking, Marissa! The pictures and your lovely words! We have 4 district seasons here but don't have the large hardwoods that give the kind of brilliant color that is seen further north. Wouldn't it be fun to start off in the northeast during their peak season and then travel south as each region turns lovely colors in the fall? We could stretch it out a long time.

    I wish I could make a collage like yours. I tried it in
    picmonkey but noting happened so I must be leaving out an important step.

  2. Hi Marissa,
    I was just daydreaming about pecans yesterday. Our neighbor gave us a pumpkin pecan pie and I was explaining to Susi how the pecans would fall off the ground and everyone would gather them. Then she decided I should make a pecan pie! Wish I had a tree I could just pick.

  3. Am so jealous of beautiful color like that at this time of the year. Our trees are all bare and ice coated.

    Beautiful photos.

  8. Marissa,
    I'm not sure if you are aware, but you are a "no-reply" blogger. I appreciate all the comments you leave on my blog, but am unable to e-mail my replies to you. Karen from Sew Many Ways has a great tutorial on fixing the "no-reply" here:http://sewmanyways.blogspot.com/2011/05/dont-be-lurker-anonymous-or-no-reply.html.

  11. What fun this morning to come for a visit. Never in my life have I seen a Pecan Tree! That's one thing that I just love about blogging, seeing what we may never see up close!

    Tee hee...I love my junky life ha! My husband bought me a bike at Walmart too a couple of years ago. It's teal blue and the first thing I did was ride it around the Walmart parking lot!

    Cheers to love and happiness!

  16. What a beautiful acorn tree! Breathtaking! For a minute it had me daydreaming if a crisp fall afternoon with the smell of apple cider and leaves in the air at the arts and crafts festival in our small town. I love Autumn it is my favorite season. I should have been named Summer Autumn ha! Your writing is excellent, I was hanging onto every word. I am trying to follow you but blogger is not showing up the follow button at the moment. Found you from Mrs to Mama! Love your blog! Summer
