I don't have to travel far for bucolic, autumn scenes. In fact my favorite place to take in the season is in my very own village.
Stepping out, to explore the village
Amherst Village seems to primp and preen itself every autumn until it is the very vision of a New England Fall Village postcard. Each historic house invites a gathering of pumpkins or mums on its porch. Wreaths in vibrant, fall hues or spooky Halloween colors adorn each old door. The trees then take their cue and begin their bursting of firework color on each limb.
I'm in love with this home's spider theme
I always enjoy a walk through the village, but the fleeting, brilliant moment of autumn, will always remain my favorite.
Join me on another autumn tour of my village next time, as I explore the old burying grounds.
