Change is in the Air

The State of Washington is divided down the middle by a mountain range.  I live on the west side, very near the water.  I have relatives that live on the east side.  This past week I was over on the east side.  As I was driving the 4 hour drive each way, I was in constant awe of the beautiful colors of Autumn. (I know - "here she goes again!")  But the yellows, oranges, reds of the deciduous trees among the evergreens really takes your breath away.  It is a long drive but I love going over this time of year.  I love the change from Summer to Fall.  I don't like the change from Fall to Winter though.  Never look forward to Winter. But it is coming.  I had to break the ice in the dog's water bowl and the water hose froze while I was visiting.  Hopefully, we will have a few more weeks before it freezes here.

I don't know the maker of this huge stamp but I love it. I colored the leaves with Prisma pencils.   The sentiment is by Unity/Ippity.
