October Beauty

There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots
may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on
the feelings, as now in October.
- Nathaniel Hawthorne

This afternoon, John and the two older kids are squirrel hunting (they shouldn't have to look very far...) and Nathanael is at his buddy Joseph's birthday party, so Philip, Ben and I went for a walk searching for beauty. In October, it's not hard to find! Thanks for the idea, Randi!

These photos are from the road that runs to the side of our neighborhood; the kids love to go under their "tree bridge"

These pictures are gorgeous! I love where I live but the part I dislike the most about it is not having seasons. When everyone else starts posting beautiful fall pictures and it looks exactly the same in my yard, I get a tad bit jealous!
