I grew up in New England, where the leaves are as brilliant as they can ever be. The reds, oranges, yellows and greens mixed altogether always made for a spectacular show come October. Driving down the Merritt Parkway with a canopy of color was always a favorite thing. No matter where you'd drive within an hour of our home, you'd see color, bright vivid color! When we moved here to Kentucky 1 1/2 years ago, I didn't expect to see much color. In fact, I didn't expect to see any at all. I figured the leaves just turned brown and fell off. Pretty naive, huh? Well, last autumn was pretty, but it certainly wasn't 'New England pretty'. This year, however, gave New England a run for it's money! The colors were a lot more bold and they lasted a lot longer. There weren't many reds like there are back east, but the oranges and yellows were vibrant and really stood out this year! I'm thankful that God chose such a pretty color palate for us to enjoy during these autumn months! Enjoy looking at some of the photos I managed to capture around the area.
