why I love Minnesota



Last weekend I celebrated my birthday on the back of the motorcycle, again. But this time it was to avoid the cake blindness caused by so, so many lit candles. The birch trees were magical. Riding in the early evening when the sun was shining on them, their leaves were suspended and the wind made them seem to glitter like sequins. Every so often a bright red maple would jump out at us. Autumn beauty plus amazing desserts made this birthday memorable. Life is good.

More good times can be seen @ Mary's meme, Ruby Tuesday.

Happy Birthday - I tend to redefine the term 'Old' on an annual basis in April...the best of my birthdays actually began with the first dreaded one, the big 3-0. Decades later, the birthdays get better as I age, year by year...

A few decades ago, I visited MN in the summer and found it to be stunningly beautiful why not autumn? The leaf change is starting much earlier than us near Long Island Sound. The colors are alive, the foliage captured at its peak. Nice!

Happy Birthday - the leaves were giving you a gift! (Desserts are always a good idea!) My friends love to motorcycle - they've ridden all over the place.

DARLING, SCARLET LADYBUG

Darling, scarlet ladybug,
On the prowl for bugs and such,
If I met you on the rug,
I would not be frightened (much).

Your birthday must be my birthday! Mine is October 1! And I celebrate Spring! But I must admit the colours of Autumn always totally enchant me! Gorgeous photos!

Happy Belated Birthday Noni!

Glad you had an enjoyable day on a motorcycle. It's amazing to see that all the trees have started to change colors.

Gee, that's the first time I ever heard of the term, "Cake Blindness", LOL.
