Jack Frost is Nipping at My Nose...:Mosaic Monday


Here in the foothills of the Cascade mountains the colors are a changing! We wake to a mystic morning! The evergreens are full of sparkling dew and glisten as the sun rises in the East.



As the day moves forward the sun shines down on all of Fall's glory!
As the sun sets and the chill in the air settles in ,the colors deepen. Bringing you a view of Fall in the Foothills of the Cascades Mtns.
Be sure to drop over to Mary's post for more wonderful mosaics. Thank you Mary for hosting Mosaic Monday!

You've no doubt been seeing colder temps than we in New England have but there's definitely that hint of winter in the air.

Nice photos, Sharon. Every year I'm always surprised at our fall colors. Summer doesn't fade around here, does it? I love the foggy pine tree picture.

Oooooh, I just love the front of that house in the middle of those gorgeous Fall scenes. Is that a log cabin? What a beautiful place to be.

Oh how I wish someone would invent a teleporter. You know...beam me up! to the foothills. Lovely and dreamy.
Hope you didn't break your 'add to cart' button but I sure understand the drooling.
Love your sweet little red felt birdie and last week's mosaic. I am so far behind in posting and visiting.
Thanks for stopping by with BD wishes yesterday and hope you can pop back and see what fun I had.
Happy Monday Blessings ;-)
