Early Autumn Palette

along Hope River Road:

splash of crimson

 

apricot dahlias

 

down the road

 

Addendum:

I'm coming back to this post midafternoon to take a few deep breaths. Yes, it's been that kind of day. I think it may also help to remind myself I'll be walking along these roads later this Thanksgiving long weekend. Thanksgiving. Gratitude. Another breath.

It no longer feels like that kind of day. Or maybe it still is. But I'm better able to stay calm in the face of it.
