Oh, CAROL, what gorgeous descriptions! Can I borrow a few for my works in progress???!!!

Sigh. Am going on a deep blogging hiatus. The writers cave calls. I cannot emerge to blog hop until two deadlines are met.

Would covet your prayers and occasional hi, are you still alive visits at my place.
Will be back to the hut WHENEVER my Muse allows.

Pretzels with honey mustard - sounds good to me!

Great color descriptions, and I love them all. Fall makes me smile. It's my favorite time of year.
Joanne said…
Fall is the best time ... Would you send me a piece of that eggplant parmigiana, one of my fave dishes!

Fall does have beautiful colors. It seems warm and inviting.

Thoughts in Progress
Carol Kilgore said…
Patti - You got it. Now get busy.

Alex - Me, too!

VR - I love fall, too.

Joanne - Sure...I'll email it right to you :)

Mason - I love the deep bright tones.
Laura Eno said…
Great list and it brings back fond memories. I don't see fall colors now in Florida.
Clarissa Draper said…
Great descriptions... how sad that I've not heard of half the colors.

Carol Kilgore said…
Laura - We don't see them this early in San Antonio, but it is officially autumn.

Clarissa - How sad I spend half my life looking at paint chips. The marketing department gets quite creative.
Carol, Can I add glitter as a color? The glitter of spider webs hanging from the trees and in my face as I mow my yard. (Shiver)

Hi Carol,
Autumn sure is beautiful. The trees across the street are already turning yellow :) The foliage is gorgeous.
I noticed that your list doesn't include "pink" like Japanese Maple and Dogwood.
Have a great weekend!
Carol Kilgore said…
Teresa - Absolutely! I hate when I smack into one of those. I'm totally afraid of spiders, even the beautiful garden ones.

Claudia - Wow. I've never seen pink fall foliage. Trees don't turn here until November, sometimes late October. We're way south.

Okay, now I'm hungry and really wishing I had bought that canned pumpkin earlier today. I think I'm in love with fall and all its colors. :)
Carol Kilgore said…
No fall colors here yet, but it is a little cooler.
I love fall colors there just so, so seasonal. My favorite combo is pumpkin and chocolate brown.
LR said…
Love these fall colors! :)

Holly - I have a chocolate brown wall, but no pumpkin. Back to the paint store to check it out.

LR - Thanks. Me, too.
