Looking Back on November

Here we are at the very end of November and there are so many pictures I haven't shown you! Well, it's Willy Nilly Friday so I'm doing a post of random shots, only this time they are in pairs by location.

1. Dickey Ridge, Shenandoah National Park. I drive up there often because it's only 5 miles from the grocery store in Front Royal that has a salad bar. I get my lunch and take it up to the park to eat while drinking in the view.
Sharing with Skywatch Friday and 
2. When we visited Orkney Springs, I found flowers scattered about, apparently from some sort of celebration.

Floral Friday.

3. It's been 30 days since we visited Capon Springs and I didn't get around to showing the pictures. It really deserves it's own post but just in case I don't get to it, here is a shot of the pond in autumn. Charming place, and it is just across the mountain in West Virginia! 

Weekend Reflection, Orange You Glad, and Signs, Signs.

4. I took so many photos of the ginkgo grove at Blandy that I didn't have time to pick out the best and post them. The leaves turn yellow every autumn but then fall, covering the ground in a golden carpet.

Frank took the picture of me. I was feeling pretty good then but now I'm down with a bad cold. I hope I'm better on Sunday because the weather is supposed to warm up and I want to get outside.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Hello, it is nice you live close enough to take your lunch and enjoy the views of Shenandoah. The Carpon Spring are pretty, I love the pretty yellow trees and leaves. Great shot of you! Happy weekend!

  2. ...I think that I drove through your neck of the woods yesterday. I saw signs for Front Royal on my way to Williamsburg. Pretty countryside! Thanks Linda for stopping by, enjoy your week.

  3. Nice Fall foliage, especially when reflected in calm waters.

  4. Love your black and white - such beautiful light!

  5. Beautiful shot of the pond and the fall colors. Hope you are feeling better!!

  6. Loved all of your photographs here.
    That last picture of you is great.

    Happy December Wishes.

    All the best Jan

  7. Interesting skies, and I love the photo at Capon Springs! The Ginkgo trees are beautiful!
    Hope your cold is better so you can get outside.

  8. Such lovely pictures. I hope you are feeling better by now.
