Fabulous Fall!!




Yippeeee!! My favorite time of year is here! I love the colors, I love the angle and warmth of the sun, I love the smell of leaves, I love the crunch of leaves underneath my feet as I walk. I love that it's my birthday next week (well... not the number of years), but I love that my birthday is in the fall. AND this year, I'm celebrating by realizing my dream of visiting High Country Gardens in Santa Fe. YEA!! We've been planing a trip there for the last three years and have not been able to get away, so this will be a real treat for me to see how some of my favorite agastaches look close up. Several should still be in bloom. I'm sure I'll have lots of photos to share when I get back.

I agree, there's a lot to enjoy in the fall, the lower temps, the foliage color, the crispness in the air... Happy Birthday next week!

A birthday trip to Santa Fe and High Country Gardens sounds like a great reward. Happy birthday! (What day is it? Mine is next week too---the 4th.)

My favorite time of year, too! Can't wait until we start seeing some fall color here. What kind of fruit is that in the photos. Are they plums??

Have fun at High Country Gardens. Sounds like a fabulous place to spend a birthday.

Do you think that being there will feel like walking around inside a photo shoot for a magazine, Bev? I'll bet the light is wonderful there, too so have fun with the camera!

What a fine idea - Happy Birthday!
