A Walk in the Park

Today it’s a VERY gray and EXTREMELY rainy day – I had to put that capital emphasis, because it seems the skies just decided to open up and dump rain by the truckloads, not even bucketloads. On a positive note, the rain seems to really bring out the colors of the trees and I’m lucky I get to enjoy all that beauty from my windows. So, in order to brighten things up and share the beauty with others, I thought I would post some pictures I took on another gray and rainy day not so long ago!

A few days ago I went out for a walk after the rain. I find that the rain seems to cleanse everything so colors are brighter and more stunning after a rain shower. The gray clouds also somehow manage to enhance all the brilliant autumn colors and make for amazing spectacles of nature. I hadn’t planned on walking in this park, but as I passed by, the colors of the trees caught my eye and dazzled me. Those magnificent colors beckoned me, and the further I followed the park trail, the more amazing the scene became. I was rather grateful I just happened to choose that direction for my walk, because it would have been a real shame to miss out on all that beauty.

Oh, and as a little side note: I know there are a lot of pictures of that one bench, but I just fell in love with how beautiful and romantic it looked, nestled between the trees and with all those leaves on and around it.

I hope you enjoy seeing these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.

    1. YAY! I’m so excited that you put a comment on my blog! 😀 And I’m really really happy that you liked the pictures and that hopefully they could brighten up your day a little bit! Lots of love to you and see you soon!


    1. Thank you! I’m really happy you enjoyed them 🙂 The rainfall and wind earlier that day had knocked down a lot of the leaves and just made for such a spectacular display on and around that bench.


  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I see what you mean about that bench- and there’s even that branch reaching from one tree to the other like a friendly arm!


      1. We are very lucky, because the town we live in is really lovely. There’s so much nature, parks and quaint little roads/town squares; it’s really nice in the winter when it’s all white and sparkling. I’ll make sure to share pictures of our winter season…and I do love the snow, but I hope it doesn’t come too soon, so we can keep enjoying autumn for a bit!


    1. Thank you! I happy you liked them; that park is particularly beautiful in the fall, more than in any other season (in my humble opinion!) 🙂 I really appreciate your comments, even more so because your pictures are really incredible.


    1. Thank you for your kind comment! The fall is so beautiful in the New England states, and I’m really amazed every day at the constantly changing colors – it’s really fantastic, so I’m happy to share that beauty with others! Thanks again for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you again 🙂
