Okay, this is the best I could do without a zoom and a tripod on a quick drive-by through Mansfield, Indiana, and nearby countryside just to guage how the fall colors will present themselves by Oct. 10. The Parke County Covered Bridge Festival runs through Oct. 19.

Putto in Fall


The explosion of fall color was fashionably late in my corner of the world. Unfortunately the season peaked in late October – after the annual Parke County Covered Bridge Festival (more posts on fall and festival later).

Fall Putto

This Putto is the same garden statue featured in my Putto in Spring post and my (winter) Under His Wing photo.

Here is the Summer Putto to complete my four seasons collection.

Summer Putto

May the angels watch over you and keep you warm as the summer sun.

“May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.

May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace.”

Many more blessings in the coming year!
