Beauty is where you find it

Our local deciduous fall colors smear from pale green>sickly yellow>mushy brown. Fortunately we have emerald walls of evergreens to distract us from this less than exciting color palette.

When I see fall pictures from other parts of the country I want to take a road trip. Even if it is just to a jam-packed Costco parking lot in nearby Everett.

Beauty is where you find it and sometimes you have to overlook other distracting elements to see it but it is really all around you. And sometimes it is there because someone else took the time, effort and expense to put it there.
