Blogger's Community Photo Challenge: Change

"The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live."

-Flora Whittmore

The subject for this round of the Blogger's Community Photo Challenge is "Change." What a great idea. We are in autumn now, and change is all around us. Last weekend, here in the Bay Area, we had a wonderful mixture of weather, as the transition to those shorter colder days inch their way in. The change in the weather leaves me with mixed emotions. I have come to enjoy those warm days, but those cool nights are great for cuddling. I guess in some ways it's the best of both worlds. And my favorite of all change, has to be the way the leaves on the trees turn such beautiful colors and then fall to the earth. Sigh. I love leaves. The way to this girl's heart isn't with a bouquet of flowers, it's with a bouquet of leaves.

Wonderful entry, I love this season...not as much as summer, but it is my second favorite season! I am looking forward to my trip up to CT to take some early autumn shots this week.
Thanks for joining in!

Have tried to leave a comment a couple of times, but it didn't appear. Hope you don't get all of them at once. If so, sorry.

Very nice image. Reminds me of a summer of gardening. Good memories. Lovely photograph.
