It's FALL in Victoria, British Columbia....and is it EVER!

Thought for this Thursday, I would give you a glimpse at what FALL looks like at BUTCHART GARDENS in Victoria, BC..........It takes my breath AWAY! How about YOU??
The CHANGE of SEASONS always remind's me of the LORD'S FAITHFULNESS to us as HIS people. In all this worlds convulsions, in all temporary distress and DANGER, We can remain calm, collected and BOLDLY say with CONFIDENCE,"I know GOD is here and ALL this is working for my GOOD!" Therefore, we will NOT FEAR, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried in the midst of the SEA' the the waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling and YES even though the STOCK MARKET plunges!!! Our GOD is ALWAYS FAITHFUL!

My heart just skipped a beat! The colors are beautiful! I can't wait to for the leaves here to start changing. This all the reason why I love fall, spring, summer and winter!! Oh, Oh... this also means I will have bring down the blinds in the family room. LOL... During summer I raise the blinds cuz there are so many trees surrounding us no one can see us!

Hi Mimilee
Your pics of Victoria are beautiful. Victoria is on the top of my getaway list, I can't wait to see it. Regarding the Sarah Palin pic, you can tell it is photoshopped if you study it carefully. The scale on the crab is off and the end of the bear is cut off behind her. Look at the way the bears head rests on the arm of the sofa, it's not right.
Thanks for visiting me. :)

These colors are almost unreal! This is the color scheme I want to shoot for in the current school project I'm working (I have a concept presentation for it up on my blog right now)

I knew I wanted to include purple tones along with the typical oranges and reds that are thought of, so these pictures express my color scheme idea perfectly!
