Happy Halloween…almost

October 30, 2009


It was a busy week this week, so I am so excited to be staying in Boston for the weekend.  We have some fun Halloween stuff planned and also lots of relaxing and enjoying Boston in the Fall.  They really go all out here.  The decorations, the colors, the crisp air and smell of leaves, Fall is New England’s time to shine.  Growing up in the south, spring was the season bursting with color, so it is fun to embrace the fall.


Hordes of Gourds

Look at these amazing gourds I found at the little market down the street.


They are almost alien with all their warts and growths, and the saturated shades of orange, yellow and green are to die for.

In Pennsylvania last weekend

A sea of yellow.



We are going on the Boston Ghost Tour tonight (Spooooooky!) and spending Halloween afternoon and evening in Beacon Hill with friends.  It is suppose to be great fun.  Apparently the neighborhood becomes one big block party with the streets closed to cars and trick or treaters everywhere.  Can’t wait.

    This shot from PA is amazing. It makes me think of the Robert Frost poem, “Nothing Gold Can Stay”. I love the color and definition in the foreground, drawing me into the tree in the center, which hints that all of the leaves will be gone soon enough. Makes me want to run through that meadow right now while it’s pretty, as “…nothing gold can stay.”
