Fall is my favorite season! It’s so rich in color and the earth is just bursting with its harvest. There’s a magical feel in the air that stirs the soul on a crisp autumn night lit by a full moon. On recent walks I took some photos of the beauty of this earth and season, along with a couple of homes that have a haunting aura about them.
Lace up your shoes and join me for a walk in the woods!
Even though it’s a gloomy day out, the trees glow in their bask of autumn color.
I opened up the shutter on my camera and used the tripod to get a brighter picture.
Time to kick up some leaves on this invigorating journey down a woodsy path.
The crunch of leaves underfoot is a comforting sound.
Do you have official rustic roads where you live?
Or how about majestic old homes like this one in Galena that you’re convinced are haunted?
I’m convinced my own 135-year old home has a ghost that comes around once in a great while.
(This house and the one below are not my house.)
A few unexplained events have occurred in our house that are a little creepy.
Like the time my daughter’s dresser fell over onto the floor all on its own,
while the girls were in the room. It freaked them out!
Or the time the kids were playing cards with a friend,
and all the cards were blown onto the floor … and no window was open.
And then there was that Saturday when I was home all alone in the kitchen,
and an overpowering perfume filled the room with a brief chill in the air.
I asked who was there but she didn’t answer.
I don’t wear perfume and no candles were burning.
Every couple of years we experience some weird phenomenon in our home.
Although our home doesn’t look like these spooky houses, those events always makes me pause and wonder.
The colors are just bursting here and I’m enjoying the beauty of God’s creation.
I wish the days were a bit longer so we could enjoy the colors longer through the day.
I’m looking forward to Halloween. How about you?
