Mother Nature Never Rests

Thank you Susan from A Southern Daydreamer for hosting another fun Outdoor Wednesday.

Pretty much where I live the leaves have turned color and have fallen. It is fascinating to think that there is no rest for mother nature. Her efforts to change season to season is continuous. Look at this picture I took ten days ago. Heck you can even see some trees that are still green.

I just took this picture yesterday and look at the difference in color. Up the mountain not a green tree to be seen.
I don't think I've ever noticed the swiftness of mother nature at work as I do in the Autumn. No sooner the leaves have peaked and then within a week you notice the trees are bare and autumns colors have faded. She never seems to rest.

A few days ago I decided to take a few pictures. I went shopping for a wee bit. I can't resist gift boutiques. Especially...those that sell a mixture of vintage and new merchandise. I parked across from the bed and breakfast.

Passed the wine shop.

Yes...I was right. The Village Shoppe selling 'New & Old'.
I did a little bit of damage to my pocket book but I had a lot of fun and bought some interesting findings.

On the way back to the car I had some well wishers.
It was a great afternoon! ~amy

I love your fall pictures. All of our trees have completely lost their leaves. They never did get really pretty around here.

At first I thought they sold Chocolate Wine....I have a bottle of Chocolate wine in my fridg waiting for me to be able to drink it. It is so good! I should post it next week in Rednesday since it has red on it.

My, oh my, what gorgeous photos! Where do you live?? I miss the colors we'd see in the SE, when we were living in North Alabama. We just don't get colors like that, here, in So. California...unless you drive to more forested areas. Thank you for sharing. Made me feel like I was somewhere magical. Marcia
