Maybe it is just because I have always lived in our country's mid-Atlantic region, but I think fall is the most beautiful time of the year. As I try to do each year, today I am sharing with you some of the seasonal beauty which surrounds us here in central New Jersey.
Despite the fact that two major metropolitan areas are in just an hour's time, those being New York City and Philadelphia, Hunterdon County pretty much lies in the heart of horse and farm county.
Hunterdon County was established on March 11, 1714 with it's county seat being that of Flemington, the site of the Lindbergh kidnapping trial.
Hunterdon County is also the home of Elisabeth Gilbert, noted author of the 2006 best seller Eat, Pray, Love.
The last week in October is usually our peak week for autumn foliage to really pop, and the countryside is ablaze with amazing color.
We may have had to deal with some fairly cold winters over the past few years along with nor' easters like Superstorm Sandy. But to be able to bask in the warmth of mid-autumn's sun and have my world wrapped in the golden yellows, fire reds, and cool greens of each fall, makes living here in the mid-Atlantic a true blessing!
