Colorful Mid-October

The Good: Autumn has reached the mountain! Yesterday we drove to Cacapon Resort State Park in West Virginia and saw plenty of colorful foliage. 
Mosaic Monday
The Random: I saw this painting on a building. I didn't want to trespass so I had to photograph it from an angle.

Monday Murals
The Fun: Speaking of chickens, there is something fun about a giant chicken! The pumpkins at this market hold the promise of jack-o-lanterns and spicy-sweet pie! 


  1. Lovely seasonal feel to your post this week, the fall colours on the mountain are gorgeous. Happy to see you for Mosaic Monday again this week, Maggie

  2. This is such a pretty time of year, and you captured it wonderfully. The giant chickens made me smile.

  3. I do love the fall colors. THe rooster is nice too!

  4. What a stunning post, dearest Linda, the mosaic you begin it with is simply gorgeous, thank you for sharing such a charm !

    May the remainder of your week be as beautiful as you

  5. The giant chicken is quite whimsical!

  6. The colors on the trees are so gorgeous. I wish we had that here. It looks so picturesque and inviting.

    Glad you got a pic of the artwork. That was really cute. I envy anyone that can draw and paint.


  7. That foliage is beautiful. And the chickens are fun in their colors.

  8. We're hoping to find some autumn color in the mountains of Tennessee over the next couple of days. It's been so dry this year that the color are likely to be on the dull side.

  9. Someone had a sense of humor when they painted the rooster. Fund find on such a lovely autumn day. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  10. WOW!!
