Autumn Colors from our Virginia/Maryland/West Virginia Trip (Sept. 20-29, 2013)

Taken at Williamsburg, Virginia  9/23/13
I have featured photos of all of the wildflowers in bloom when we were on our trip... SO--today I'll share some of the beautiful Autumn Colors we saw along the way.  I was surprised to see as much color as I did since it wasn't even October yet.... BUT--we did see some pretty colors,  so I hope you will enjoy them...

Be sure to enlarge the photos for bigger photos..

Well---that's what we saw.  Did you like seeing the Autumn Colors????  We hope to have and see much more of this beautiful color around Tennessee this month.  Hopefully,  I'll get to share many more Fall pictures with you.   Having a rainy Spring and Summer has helped with the colors I think this year!!!!

You can see one photo of some Fall Colors from Fairfield Glade where we live if you visit my Photo Blog today.  Click HERE  to see that color!!!!

Have a wonderful day and be sure and get outside and enjoy this remarkable season.

Hugs,

It's not looking like fall colors are going to be too spectacular this year but you managed to find quite a lot of it.
The first one you took on the Blue Ridge Parkway makes me think of a patchwork quilt

Sandra said...

Hi Betsy!
Love the lush and beautiful pics, and how nature looks like it's reclaiming the rocks with amazing brightly coloured foliage, and of course, I love the pic of you and George!! x x

Looks like lots of color up high - not much happening here yet.

This is such a beautiful picture of you and George...with the red leaves above you and the red in your shirts. Of course, the most beautiful of all would have to be the subjects!! I have looked and re-looked at all of these photos this morning. Blesses me to see God's glorious beauty...

Wow, those colors are so pretty. I love this time of year.

Serenity Cove said...

Beautiful Betsy....we are getting close to peak. Was hoping to take some time today to drive around looking for some nice leaves but right now it's very cloudy and raining.

TexWisGirl said...

that blue ridge parkway carpet is gorgeous!

Jim and Sandie said...

So gorgeous. Since we are now down here in the desert there really aren't a lot of colors so it's fun to see your blog. We made a fall foliage trip to New England one year. Never have seen anything like it.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Certainly the most beautiful time of the year...love all the bright oranges/reds. Lovely!

Our photos said...

Beautiful are the Autumn trees photos!
Greetings, RW & SK

Jeanne said...

Love seeing all your fall colors! As you know we don't see much color until November here in Southeast Texas. Thanks for sharing!

Linda said...

These are marvelous, Betsy. I think my favorite is the mountain view from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Another favorite is of the trees lining the roadway itself. They're all so beautiful.

Brenda Kay Ledford said...

Oh, Betsty, these are fantastic fall colors. I love all of these bright, beautiful shots of the leaves and Blue Ridge Parkway. The foliage is really pretty here in WNC now.

Ms. A said...
