I'm Dreaming of New England Pink Saturday

While it's still Saturday I'm happy to join the fun blogging group at Pink Saturday. Every week I look for pink things in my travels around the city and generally I am successful. But this week I found nothing. There's very little pink around and nothing I wanted to write a post about. I decided to go with the theme for this week, which is "Celebrating the Season." I hoped to do a post that included pictures of bright fall foliage, but my search yielded very little.

 
The best that I could find were leaves beginning to turn yellow. No bright red or orange for our city trees. Of course we've had very few really cold nights and that's a prerequisite for good foliage. I am celebrating the clear, brilliant sky we did have today. We still may have some nice foliage, but my dreams tonight will be of New England. I may have had to rake millions of leaves -- literally -- but I loved the beautiful foliage of my childhood and college years.

I hope you had a bright and beautiful autumn day. My day was lovely. I did errands, took a walk -- I'm up to ten blocks -- and had dinner with friends.  Tomorrow I hope to launch my kale adventure.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care of yourself.

Our leaves are just beginning to turn and I am sure you will see some beautiful foliage this week in places like Central Park.

It was a windy chilly Saturday here but today is supposed to be a little warmer and nicer day. Some of our trees are bare already and others just changing. It's nice with the variety of trees in the neighborhood we get a variety of colors and times they change color too.Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Your sky looks crisp and cool on this beautiful autumn day. I agree that you should see more color in a few more days. Have a super Sunday.

Have a lovely autumn and keep looking for some pink. As the Good Book says "seek and ye shall find."
You always find neat NYC vignettes to share here.

In the middle of the city, it's nice to see some trees. Looks like it was a beautiful autumn day to be out and about.
