Autumn in Vermont

Autumn scenery at Mrs. White's Vermont home. 

It is amazing outside here in Vermont.  The temperature is warm with a gentle breeze. The sky is bright and sunny, while colorful leaves fall all around us.

I found Papa outside doing projects. I told him we should take pictures of the beautiful scenery here at the Estate. He was relieved to stop and take a break.   (It is good to have opportunities like this to keep laughter and happiness in a marriage.)

We each have our own cameras. We kept trying to get a perfect photograph of falling leaves in action.  The leaves are so small, in front of the vast trees in the background, that the camera can barely capture them as they travel to the ground.

Finally, Papa suggested he throw some in the air while I take a picture. This way the camera could capture what we were seeing.  This is the result:

We had a lovely break, from our home responsibilities, out in the fresh air.  Now we must get back to housekeeping.  I enjoyed visiting with you. I hope you are having a peaceful fall season.

I like that you took time to enjoy each other and play!
What a great idea to throw up the leaves, to capture them in a picture. It turned out great.

Thanks for visiting!

Beautiful picture! Thank you for sharing!

I LOVE that picture, Mrs. White...
I always thought it would be beautiful in the autumn in your lovely state....

Thank you for your visit to my blog today, "Closed Doors, Open Windows". I have now discovered your delightful blog, and hope to get better acquainted in the future. We used to live in a lovely big old New England Home in Fryeburg, Maine, and have such pleasant memories of living in New England itself. (also lived in NH). I loved that old house, even though we were only renting it for about a year...I felt like I was living in a different time and place. Your posts here are lovely, and bring back those times. Thank you for your thoughts today.

Oh, and I forgot to say, I loved the pictures of the autumn leaves in your yard, especially the ones you tossed in the air! I loved playing in the leaves...loved to rake them up just to jump in them....even as an adult...

A lovely time together, and a lovely picture to remember it by!
We in SE Ga are hunkered down for Hurricane Michael. ATM, we here near
the coast only have some wind, but no rain yet. The worst is to come
later tonight.
Tomorrow will be work for both of us, and perhaps some 'groundswork'
and home repairs around our own 'estate', as well.

Happy Fall!

Mrs. White said...

Christine, we did have such fun. Thank you!

Thank you MDay! It was great to be able to take pictures of such a pretty season.

Thank you bj! I am thankful for your visit!

Mrs. White said...

Thank you so much Pamela! How lovely that you also lived in New England. It is so beautiful here. I have never been to Maine, but I would love to visit there, somewhere near the ocean. You must have enjoyed living there!

You are right, playing in the leaves is a wonderful part of Autumn!

Mrs. White said...

Tammy, I was reading a little about the Hurricane tonight. I pray you are all kept safe!

God bless and keep you!

What a beautiful picture you both captured together! And it sounds like you both got a much-needed break from all the necessary fall chores! The picture is just gorgeous, and makes me think of my childhood and playing in fallen leaves, and how much fun that is to do! Always enjoy a visit here with you :)

Amelia said...

*Happy sigh* ...So nice...The leaves dancing around. These are the things sweet memories are made of.

I think it's so great your little break, sounds so fun!

It looks like a wonderland there! Just beautiful!

Love coming here, love to you, ~Amelia

Lovely to see the Autumn color there in Vermont. There is no prettier place this time of year. I grew up in New England and miss it terribly, especially in the fall. You have a lovely blog. x Karen

Deanna said...

Such pretty Autumn colors. Glad you shared.
Your pics turned out super neat.

Theresa said...

One of my favourite tv shows was Newhart. I always loves the opening credits showing beautiful Vermont. You are fortunate to live surrounded by such beauty.

I love the beautiful fall colors you have. In South Carolina we don't have much color yet and today the hurricane, now tropical storm is coming through our area. I love reading your blog and look forward to each new post.

What a lovely word picture you painted of your day and the beauty surrounding your home.

Thank you for coming for a visit today at my blog.

Have a blessed week,

Tossing the autumn leaves into the air for photographs was a very clever idea! It looks great!

You have amazing color in your trees. We took a bus "leaf peeping" tour through New England some years ago. The colors were stunning. You live in a beautiful part of the country.

Theresa, I also love the opening program of Newhart. They certainly did capture the beauty of Vermont! Thank you!

Laura, I hope you are okay from the storm. Stay safe! God bless you!

I enjoyed visiting with you Shirley! God bless you!

Thank you, Barbara! I love that you were able to tour New England at this time of year. It is lovely!

What a great photo! I too live in New England and Autumn is my favorite time of year. I hope you get a chance to enjoy some fresh apples or cider!
