Handbag and Book: The Leaves are Falling #autumn #freebook

 
Every Sunday, Handsome and I walk four miles. We go from our house through the shopping center, past the post office and turn down one of the most beautiful streets lined with homes, the earliest dates to 1905. The designs are colonial, prairie style, like a modified Italiante (I'm not literate on all styles). Lots of famous people have lived on this street and some of the movers and shakes now do.
 
Many years ago, this was not the most popular area to live in and the homes fell into disrepair. Through the hard work of those with a vision to create a historical area, the homes were renovated.k
 
The boulevard is lined with magnolias, crepe myrtles, live oaks of all varieties, pecan--again, multiple varieties, and the most colorful of all: sweet gum. Today, I picked up these leaves:
 
The one on the left is very scarlet with purple edges. The one on the right is a lovely lemon color with a tinge of green just near the stem.
 
Lots of people don't believe we have the turning of the leaves in the fall. We have to have the perfect cold snap for a stunning display. Today, we have the sweet gum.
 
It was a glorious walk.
 
 
Just til Nov 15, Season of Magic is free on Amazon, Nook, and Kobo.

Sounds like a wonderful time. We have a tree across the street which has been beautiful with all the colors up until the first frost... now the leaves are on the ground :(

Hi, Melissa! Looking up instead of looking down at the ground-what a great idea. lol Seems most of us are only looking at screens instead of the beauty surrounding us. Soon, all our leaves will fall. But then, spring comes.
