Hunting for Red in October, Second Edition

There is no more beautiful place to live this time of year (IMHO) than the Pacific Northwest. Last year I posted ‘hunting for red….’ Again, I’d like to share some of the beautiful Fall colors my Father has painted for us……..

  1. Nice interpretation of Red October, Jody…of course, here in St. Louie we call this season Red October for another reason…Go Cards! It's kind fun that we are playing the Red Sox…it's going to be a very red world series! I am a fair weather fan, but had to make the connection…

  2. Thank you, Jody, for a heart-warming post. I, too, feasted upon your images of bright foliage. Seasonal changes here in Florida are subtle. I miss the blazing elms, oaks, and maples of the Midwest (but not the meat-locker winters)! That last image is a treasure–no wonder you've kept it all these years. 'Love that little flower, standing tall with confidence, because “she” is forgiven.

  3. I really enjoyed the pictures as I do not get out and about that much. (Especially the last one!) I think God gave us His beauty of Fall so we were not traumatized by bouncing from Summer to Winter 🙂 I certainly enjoy the beauty and I do thank you for sharing it with us!! Love you! Patty

  4. Now, see–I thought New England held exclusive rights to red in autumn,what with all our Sugar Maples and all. I guess I'm used to seeing only yellow in the fall in the turn of Aspens in the west. Thank you for introducing me to the reds of the Pacific Northwest.

    I know I was completely inconsistent in my capitalizations in that last comment but can't be bothered to figure out why.

    Oh, and I agree–the last red was the best of all!
