More Colours from Seattle

It is still all about Autumn!
Promises are to be kept, and I am keeping my promise of keeping the autumn spirits up on my blog even this week. Last week, I took you through some auburn landscapes that gave you an idea of Fall in Seattle (my current home). Even today my traveling feet are exploring the shades and tones of autumn everywhere in the city. But didn’t I already show you glimpses of fall foliage last week? What else can fall be known for? Wondering?

The answer is flowers! If you thought only spring was known for beautiful vibrant flowers, let me tell you Autumn will leave you mesmerized. Autumn is an equally vibrant blooming season. In fact, from where I see it, it is more colourful compared to spring which mostly has warm shades everywhere. Don’t believe me? 


Did you know roses are actually autumn flowers? Surprised right. Roses were originally autumn flowers and even now bloom best an in abundance during fall.

Nature has a sense of contrast, doesn't it?
Like I had mentioned in my last post I have fallen in love with the amount of colours nature puts on a display during Autumn and it is not just leaves and berries but also flowers! Chrysanthemum, coneflowers, asters and fall crocuses paint wilderness in shades of pink, mauve, red, yellow, orange and so many other colours, it is enthralling.

A friend of mine told me last time she was lost in the pictures so much that after a point she didn't really need the words. So this time I am letting the pictures speak for themselves. 

Do you see what I see? Is it weird I couldn't even find the name of this flower!

Daisies and Asters are literally everywhere!
I have been enjoying nature to the fullest these past couple of weeks, hope some of my pictures today made you feel exactly how I feel almost every day since fall has begun.

A little bit of sun is always welcome right?
