It was wet and rainy, and I have little desire to go outside, besides, I am still in my slippers. This is as far as you need to go to take a good autumnal picture, a step outside the sliding glass doors.
No need to hike up the mountainside, or drive miles and miles to some other destination. No need to lace up those hiking boots or dig up your hat and gloves.
Well, maybe I stepped out of the gazebo a little bit…
so I could take these pictures of the walnut tree and the leaves its scattering all over the yard.
Of course, you can still sip the hot chocolate, if you want. With a little something in it, if you like. Just Saying.
