Fall Colors

I sometimes wish we would have fall colors like this, but I'm happy we don't have the cold weather that settles in after this seasonal display! These photos were taken almost 27 years ago in Philadelphia, while on a trip with Tommy and a one year old Laura. It was a great visit with Aunt Rita and Rosie, and my first time in the city. I was in awe of the color present in every landscape and snapped pictures in both the city and Pennsylvania countryside. The photos on this scrapbook page were taken in a cemetery, presumably one where the Fox relatives had been buried. I don't remember. But I DO remember Aunt Rita's scolding when I picked up a particularly beautiful leaf from the ground. "Oh no!" she exclaimed. "Don't ever take anything from a cemetery or you'll be sure to bring it back...sooner rather than later!" It was a funny superstition, but she would have died herself if I hadn't dropped it right there.

Another pretty fall scene from a field trip to Red Bluff Farm:

Beautiful trees. I'd rather just look at pictures, too, than actually have to brave a "real" winter.

yeah, I wish the cold didn't come after such beauty - but it sure is beautiful around these parts these days :) LOVELY layout Madeline!

you have the coolest stories! I love that cemetary layout and the bg you used. The Reap layout is making me want to go eat a caramel apple! I love the way you tied the red tag on and the little BG pea pods
