Foliage scenes around the neighborhood, part 1

Earlier this week I snapped just a few photos near my dad's house.  It was quite cloudy so the pictures have sort of a dark (but really not gloomy) look.  They were taken with my Kindle so are not perfect, but I wanted to share them anyway.

I love the one at the top, showing yellow milkweed plants in the foreground, red sumac in the center left and then distant bright trees and a blue mountain.

The one below is looking up the road past my dad's at some colorful trees.  I sort of like this look with the gray skies.

This one below is probably my very favorite in this batch.  I just love the way the opening in the bushes provides a pretty frame for the mountain and the colorful treeline.  To me it sort of looks like a painting.

And then the one below was taken near our church this past Sunday.  I love how the single bright red tree just stands out, almost like a flame.

Hope you've enjoyed these atypical glimpses of New Hampshire color!


  1. Oh, dear Mrs I enjoy visiting with you! It has been awhile...I have not had sufficient time for blogging lately, but hopefully that will change in the not too distant future! {{Smiles}} What a delight this post was...and I loved catching a glimpse of your beautiful part of the world! Such pretty scenery...
    Have a truly wonderful, blessed weekend!
    Much love,

    1. Kelly-Anne, it is so nice to see you here! I understand not having sufficient time for blogging. You can see that some of my posts are little more than a few photos. I'm glad you've enjoyed seeing some of our fall scenery.

      We did have a blessed weekend ... especially today. Truly blessed!

      Hope to see you again soon at my kitchen table!

      God bless,
      Mrs. T

  2. Thanks for sharing. That is on my bucket list...visiting the Northeast one day. We don't see that here on the Panhandle of Florida.

    1. Sandi, I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. I hope you get to New England someday too. Check out today's (Monday's) blog post for a really glorious orange tree!

  3. A mountain, too! I like views of one tree that stands out against the others. The foliage is really picking up steam and will soon be peak here...perhaps by week's end.

  4. Yes, a mountain too. That is Stinson Mountain ... steadfastly in my view through all of childhood. I'm so thankful that one day I came to know the one who sets the mountains fast!

    Not quite peak foliage here, I don't think. But it's very windy today so many leaves are blowing off the trees.


Thanks so much for stopping by to visit my kitchen table! I love company here in my kitchen, so be sure to leave a comment so I'll know you've visited! I'll answer your questions and comments here on the blog unless you request otherwise.
