So, for the most recent color challenge, Melissa said there are no rules and just go where the title (Autumn Infused) takes you. Well, here is where I ended up, and in the words of Jerry Garcia, while he was still alive and performing with the Grateful Dead, what a long, strange trip it's been! Smile I initially tried sticking with the suggested color palette, but my unruly muse soon took control and so here is my take on the color challenge: a celebration of a few of my favorite autumnal things. In no particular order they are:


Fall food treats! Pumpkin pie! Candy corn! Caramel apples!
Harvest Festivals.
Halloween! Everything about it! The decorating! The candy! The joyful laughter of costumed children as they run from house to house.
Colorful leaves rustling in the wind.
The way the kitchen smells on Thanksgiving Day.
The way the kitchen sounds on Thanksgiving Day.
The crisp chill of a moonlit fall night.
Snuggling under a blanket in front of a cracking fire with my best beloved.
Puttin’ on my favorite fall sweater.
The way shadows get longer, as though they stretch from fall into winter.


And now if you'll excuse me. I have to make an appointment to see my doctor. I think I have repetitive stress syndrome from typing up all of the credits for this page! Smile
