Late Autumn Flowers

Now that it’s November these should be the last of the outdoor flowers. It’s much colder and the leaves are turning beautiful colors. Here’s a picture of some mums I saw on a walk a couple of weeks ago. I hope it won’t be too long before the flowers are back again!

This is for the FOTD challenge.

Pumpkins and Pine Cones

It’s starting to look and feel like autumn. The mornings are cooler and the breeze is chillier. Yesterday I went on a walk and saw lots of pumpkins. Under the bright sunshine you could even see their shadows.

As I continued my walk I saw pine cones on the ground and in trees.

Then I noticed these cute carved pumpkins that weren’t scary at all.

My favorite was this owl.

Going on a pumpkin (and pine cone) walk was lots of fun!

More Souvenir Postcards

I’m hoping to travel soon and for inspiration I’ve been looking at postcards from places I’ve been over the past few years. Here are some from my collection. It will be wonderful to see them again!

And here’s one from my hometown – Lexington, Massachusetts.

Many adventures await…

Lake Michigan in September

A visit to Lake Michigan on a sunny and windy afternoon was perfect for late September. Lots of people walked on the beach and the pier to the lighthouse. The spray from the waves got people (including me) a little wet!

This seagull disregards the sign.

It was a lovely day to spend at the beach while it is still warm…

Farmers Market

I live near a farmers market and now that autumn is approaching there are lots of seasonal things for sale like pumpkins, mums, apple cider and bouquets of flowers. It was sunny and warm yesterday when I went to the market and I saw these cheerful displays.

It will be difficult deciding which pumpkin(s) to take home!

A Second Year of Meggie’s Adventures Begins

It’s the first anniversary of Meggie’s Adventures! Last September I started this blog to write about all my favorite things: travel, ice cream (and gelato), flowers, going to the beach, and collecting postcards. Many of the stories take place when I was young, which is why the blog is called Meggie’s Adventures. But as I like to point out, I still love ice cream, flowers and travel so that hasn’t changed!

My first post was A Family Day at the Beach when we used to go to the beach in Maine. It’s been wonderful having this blog and I’m looking forward to a second year of fun adventures.
