Fall Foliage – Autumn Bliss – Pretty for Pink Saturday!

by Kaye Swain

I love the vibrant colors of fall - autumn bliss for this Sandwich Generation grandmother and caregiver

AUTUMN! It is all around me and I am treasuring each golden brown, red, and yellow leaf as they swirl around me in a glorious autumn ballet! I keep telling my senior mom and the grandkids, "Isn't this GORGEOUS!" Every day is better than the last in our area. How about yours? Are you in autumn – or spring? Or still in summer, or fast forwarded to fall?

Isn't it intriguing how God's world offers such delightful variety for all of us! Today's theme for Beverly's Pink Saturday is fall flowers and foliage. Talk about sweet autumn bliss! First to get the photos and second to enjoy everyone else's lovely pictures.

Restful water and autumn bliss - rests the eyes and is a sweet way of caring for the caregiver

I got to enjoy thirty minutes of sweet pleasure as I wandered about a lovely nature preserve in our area, snapping photos – including these, as well as enjoying a delightful time watching some cute ducks and geese. Talk about sweet family memories! It reminded me of the time my parents raised ducks, geese, and turkeys. I wasn't too fond of the geese and turkeys – they kept hissing and flapping at me! But the ducks were definitely cute then and now!

Whether I have five minutes or 50, it's a sweet treat to rest my eyes on all the colorful delights around us. Taking bits of time like this to enjoy something special is a great way of "taking care of the caregiver." So do join me, even if briefly, for some quality fall site-seeing fun! :)

Your photos are wonderful! I love the one with the reflection on water the best. And I take away your message to stop and enjoy what God has painted for us instead of stressing over Halloween decorations!

Thank you :) And what a treat to visit your site. I especially LOVED the white Halloween post. Would you believe, on of my grandkids picked a gorgeous white pumpkin at the pumpkin farm. So pretty!
