Ahh Santa Fe in Autumn is one of my favorite destinations. Cool crisp air, the golden aspens quaking in the breeze, the smell of chilies roasting in the air, and the blue sky and gentle sunshine...what's not to love! One of my favorite shops is Jackalopes, they have everything. It is fun just to wander around and see things from all over the world.
The adobes are everywhere in Santa Fe. This adobe was at Rancho de las Golondrinas or ranch of the swallows, a living history museum. We went to a Renaissance Fair which was entertaining. There were dragons, knights, kings, queens, fairies, fair maidens,ect... just like stepping back in time.
There were also jousters...aren't they hilarous! They were quite the hams and very entertaining. So many memories to spark my creative imagination.
No trip to Santa Fe would be complete without going to Ghost Ranch...where the famed Georgia O'Keef spent lots of time painting. The scenery was stunning! I know now why she moved there. If you get a chance go to Santa Fe...spring or autumn it's wonderful.

Autumn is all about the harvest...a time to slow down...to reflect...a time of changes. I love Autumn! The cool crisp air in the mornings, the leaves turning vibrant oranges, yellows, and reds. Pumpkins and gourds appear at the local market, and if you are very fortunate you live close to where they have apple orchards and pumpkin patches and can go there and enjoy the fruits of the harvest. My mom always had pears in the autumn and we were blessed to get her pear preserves that she made. I still love pears, I especially like to paint them!
This is for Inspiration Avenues weekly challenge, Autumn.

I can't beleive it has been ten years since the devestation in New York City and the United States. Let us never forget to thank God for our freedom and our service men and women, who have given so much. Some have given everything. Freedom is NOT FREE...there is always a price...let us never take it lightly or for granted. Where were you September 11, 2001?
