RedBarn Leaf Peeper

These days and moments of intoxicating Autumn peak leaf color are filling my nature-loving soul….right plump up to the top and overflowing!  Days are busy with apple picking at the Hillside Orchard, hosting sweet grandchildren for a few days during school break; all the while drinking in each ounce of autumn splendor.  Pleasures of past October days seep from stored up memory.  Times of my own growing up years on the farm, leaf piles and bonfire evenings with my own dear children and grandchildren(and dogs) cuddled on my lap.   Thinking of the years I managed to talk my man into taking an autumn drive to the  Minnesota North Shore and leaf peep along Lake Superior.  Or headed SE and poked along the Mississippi River road.  Last fall my daughter joined me on a road-trip to Door County, Wisconsin and a few autumns back I traveled the coast of Maine with my dear friend Teresa.  Sweet memories!

This girl at the RedBarn could live out the rest of her days peering at only the russet reds, glorious golds and greens of autumn foliage.  Indeed, these are my soulful, most inspiring days of the year!  Have you noticed Autumn playing her tune on your heart?

Aha moment!  This could be heaven!  

Setting sun, a bit of breeze and a few stalks of prairie grass.

Someone made the decision to plant this view along the lake.  Smart folks!
Leaf-peeper love!

The color tones I'd love to wake up to all year long.
