Have you ever heard the song from Camelot that went something like "If ever I should leave you, it would never be in 'fill in the season'"??

Well, fall is never a time to consider leaving Keene Ranch Subdivision! The colors in the fall are spectacular!

As I drive through Keene Ranch Subdivision, I find myself always wondering if anyone else ever notices, or if I'm just weird? So this weekend I drove through and snapped a few pictures to upload and see if they look as good on the computer as they do in person.

(Okay, those of you from the east might not agree as I know you have incredible reds and oranges... my husband if from NY and tells me that all the time!

So just to prove my point with the colors we have here, I want to be sure and drop in a picture boasting of the reds that we have as well! By the way, notice the beautiful blue sky in the background. Now that's something you don't always see in NY!  :)

Agreed, reds and oranges are breathtaking, but I happen to really like our golds and oranges.

There is about a two to three week time frame that our native ornamental grasses just glow with an orange cast. And the best time is  when some have changed and some have not.

Now that Keene Ranch Subdivision is getting more and more developed, we are seeing less of the beautiful native ornamental grasses. What isn't being replaced is being cut down, which saddens me.

But, hey... we'll always have the incredible views to remind us why it's worth the drive from Denver or the Springs!

(Castle Rock Colorado is located about half way between Denver and Colorado Springs on I-25. Whether heading north to Denver or south to the Springs, it's about a 30 minute scenic drive either way.)

If you would like to be prequalified to purchase a home in Keene Ranch Subdivision or surrounding areas, please give me a call!

Ruth, thanks for all your help with the blogging.  I love all the colors in your pictures and I enjoy your thoughts on Keene Ranch.  You are right, we are really lucky to live in Colorful Colorado.  Thanks

Hi Ruth - I have lived in New York and Colorado, and I have to say that both have their beauties!  I will never get over my love of quaking aspen - no matter what color the leaves happen to be!  Thanks for the great photos!

Beckie, And with this great weather we've had lately... can it get any better?

Chris, Ahhh, yes, the Aspen. A slight breeze at the right time in fall, leaves one thinking gold can fall from the skies!

Ruth, great photos!  I can see why you wouldn't want to leave during the Fall!

You're not weird, you're wonderful to notice... I notice too the beauty of the land, the sky up above, the trees and their colors, buds or no buds, and all the places I've been, I notice.

Like you I wonder if others notice. There's a nice book called "The Noticer," by Andy Andrews. There's a quote from the book that goes like this, "Your time on this earth is a gift to be used wisely, don't squander your words or your thoughts."

Thanks for sharing the gifts of the earth that you captured through your photographs. It is very much appreciated.

Ruth, great pictures.  I love the spectacular colors in the fall.  It's one of my favorite times of the year.

Tony and C-Team, Wait till I post the winter pics! Couldn't leave then, either!

Patricia, I love Andy Andrews, but haven't heard of that book. I've got to get a copy! (Glad to know I'm not alone!)

Nancy, Colorado is a great place in the fall, isn't it?

Carol, Yes it is... probably my favorite, actually.

Vickie, Ditto. And the drive to Boulder is incredible this time of year!
