Happily Sitting at a Traffic Light:

You cannot beat a sugar maple in October.
Such a feast for the eyes...
did you know
The average person spends two weeks of its life waiting for a traffic light to change.

Gorgeous! We don't have anything that beautiful here. We don't have any traffic lights either though unless we head to the BIG CITY.

But just think of all those lovely thoughts you have in those 2 weeks! Unless you are like me and you are thinking "Why do the lights always turn red when appear? I'm going to be late AGAIN!"

Trisha said...

Oh! I am soooo jealous! Our trees are still green and going strong. When it does reach the one week of Fall, the leaves will quickly turn brown and fall to the ground. I miss bright trees!

Linda said...

We have 4 lights in our town, and invariably we hit at least 2 of them red.

While there are so many beautiful trees in the fall, the sugar maple is by far the most stunning. I love that photo.

Oh, thanks for letting me know that we spend two weeks at traffic lights. I bet it was much longer before "right turn on red" took effect. What a waste of time.

Okay, that is just gorgeous.

I actually don't mind red lights. It gives me the opportunity to remember where I'm going.

That sugar maple is one gorgeous tree! Feels like we should thank them for sharing with us non-trees their sheer beauty.

No sitting at traffic lights for me - we don't have many of those out here in the middle of no-where. We gots lots of trees though they don't look that pretty anymore. Beautiful!
