I am a huge proponent of taking advantage of sunny days in the fall with the sole purpose of seeing the trees paint the town red. I always wanted to live in a place that felt the seasons thoroughly. Delicious deciduous rules this corner of Seattle and I am so ecstatic to be inside of it! My favorite place for driving is up on Capitol Hill near Discovery Park and down into the Arboretum. The houses, the street names, the giant old trees planted by Victorians, erupting with Autumn applause. …everything is so quaint and lovely you feel as though your heart might burst. The following pictures are from walks in our neighborhood and drives in the surrounding hills… I have been waiting anxiously to see the tree tops under the 20th street bridge turn. We went to take a look last weekend….Harry thinks he might get in trouble for running ahead, but it’s ok: this street is closed off from cars.Any leaves changing? Not quite…but we’ll check again soon! Look at the camera, Bridget! Oops..sorry. Can you see the little pumpkin on the steps? It gave me so much joy!
That perfectly placed surprise pumpkin gave me just as much joy as any million dollar home’s perfectly coiffed display. Check out THIS amazing house in Laurelhurst: So that’s who buys those enormous pumpkins!
