The Approaching Holiday Season


Autumn in Wilsonville

 I am a person of the Seasons, I enjoy all of the seasons as they come along, and  living in NW Oregon I have the opportunity to see the seasons come and go.  Each season is always my favorite season at the time and now I am FALLING INTO FALL. 



 It is always a miracle to me when the colors begin to change from deep greens to varying shades of yellows, reds, orange, purple and all the in-between colors that please the eye.

Our weather is beginning to get cooler and the nights crisper with hints of winter on its way,  the trees are beginning to lose their hold on the deep green pigment known as Chlorophyll  and the feeling of Autumn is clearly in the air. 


This month of October is always for me a month of transition to the Holiday Season, and of course this begins with Halloween, which I have to say is the least favorite of the Holidays for me.


 I do enjoy the small children in their homemade Halloween costumes  or even ones that were purchased.  The children are always so sweet and polite and remind me of when my girls were that age.  I have even thought of dressing up again in costume to greet the little ones, the last time I did that I was Raggady Ann, the little kids loved it!  October also gives us the pumpkins and fall decorations of Autumn making me yearn for Thanksgiving and the coming Holidays .

October has so many activities for young and old people alike such as the Pumpkin Patches throughout Oregon.  One in my area Lee Farms in Wilsonville or Bauman's in the Salem Area are just a sampling of many Pumpkin Patches and farms that are around for us and our families to enjoy.

Mary, like you, I do find something wonderful with each season. The continuing rains? How about the chance to sleep in a bit longer, sit by the fire and read? Have fun with friends INDOORS? And those fall colors?? I look FABULOUS in them so what's not to love?? I took this while the sun was reflecting through these one sunset eve up on Greasy Spoon Road, after a walk with the dogs.

Beautiful Gayle, such rich and happy colors.  Fall has such a good feel for me and always brings up lots of childhood memories like playing in piles and piles of leaves.  Anticipation of upcoming holidays and like you cuddling up to a warm cozy fire with book and glass of wine in hand.

Hi Mary, I just found you on Pinterest and thought I would stop by and say Hi.  I love all the seasons too. And we do have them here--maybe not as dramatic as where you are.  Very nice post.
