Unexpected Surprise

Originally I had planned to spend the afternoon running errands and shopping, but when we got in the car, the battery was dead.

Instead we decided to go for a walk and collect leaves.

So I followed miss green boots....

and miss silver shoes.....

and we set off around the neighborhood.

The colors that we encountered were magnificent.  


various shades of orange....

red against a brilliant blue sky


 We even found a variety of hues of purples and blues on a couple hydrangea bushes.

This afternoon turned out to be far more enjoyable than any shopping trip would have been. I love unexpected surprises like this ~ stealing moments to savor the continuing change of seasons.

 And now my girls sit and sort through the treasures they collected.

  1. What a beautiful fall walk you got to go on with your girls. Those green boots are adorable, and the hydrangeas are so special, they don't grow where I live. ;0

    Thanks for sharing such a special walk with us Jill.
