Fall's Color

Fall's color is bright.  The oranges, golds, and reds pop and beg us to come outside before we are trapped by the gray cold November skies.

Orange stands out as the color of Fall.  Warmth and fire is what it reminds me of.

Have a mug of coffee and think about fall's colors.  Which are your favorite?

Loved this table in my recent issue (Sept/Oct 2011) of Victoria.  It gave me the idea to put together the above.
Textures:
First picture: altered with parvous at 60% and stained linen at 49%.  I forgot which process.
2nd picture: serendipity with soft light 100%
3rd picture: serendipity with overlay 85%

Sherry bring on fall and Halloween -- I do love the brights like in your pictures -- absolutely love pumpkins -- such a bright fall color before, like you say, the greys of late Autumn and winter. Joni

Just beautiful and fall seems to really be coming on now. My Goldenrod, Sweet Autumn Clematis and white asters are starting to bloom and they are the last before the leaves fall in October.

Hello Sherry,
this are the perfect colors for a beautiful fall theme. Victoria's pictures are gorgeous and I wonder how you catched that idea so beautiful on your table. Although you used different flowers, pumpkins and tablecloth, you really got the same look. The mug is a wonderful addition and yes, I would love to have tea there.
Best greetings, Johanna

Oh so inspiring! I've been decorating my mantle and stairs for autumn - I guess it's the equivalent of decorating for Christmas in November!
