Autumn Country Drive...

Just a few random scenes from last weekend. .....and my "texture tuesday" submission (my first!) which used a lovely texture made by Kim...





Most of these were taken on the way to Putnam, Connecticut from RI. Putnam had a lovely little downtown festival going on last weekend. It's a great little place to find antiques, too.




I discovered this new coffee place in Plainfield, Baker's Dozen, that I am obsessed with. Above was their tempting Pumpkinchino ad, but I opted for the Iced Chai, which was the BEST iced chai I've ever had. Sweet, with skim milk and just the right amount of spices. YUM! I should have taken a pic of it.

Above, top, this deer was staring at me when I  was stopped at a traffic light. It was a rather long time, so I got out my camera and snapped a pic. Isn't he cute??  Center and bottom: maple leaves and cozy brown house; colorful lakeside leaves.

That's the great thing about New England..I am always finding new places to discover. RI is so small that "taking a drive" means you end up out of state at least twice a week. And the changes in nature, wildlife, foliage, and even people from just a few minutes of traveling in any direction makes it fun to explore.

We're having a snowstorm right now, (unheard of in October) so this may be the last time I had to take fall pics....(sniffle!)  :)  ~Mary

Yes that freaky snowstorm hit us here in NYC as well. But I have to say, New England has the awesomest Fall colors ever! I've been wanting to drive up there during Fall for years. :-)
