After a long, hot summer that managed to stretch well into October, temperatures in Helen are starting to reach that wonderful fall crispness. Can the changing colors be far behind? Probably not, judging by this picture, snapped in Unicoi State Park – one of our neighbors, just down the road. At the Georgia State Parks website, “Leaf Watch 2018” is in full swing! On the site you can see pictures showing you how far into leaf season we’ve made it this year, learn about all the scenic places to witness nature’s change of color palette, and even find a link to weather.com’s fall foliage map.
You may be thinking “Wait. Isn’t this a site about antiques? Why am I reading about fall colors and crisp temperatures?” Well, sorry – I can’t help myself. Fall is such a splendid time of year – a season that evokes the most nostalgic feelings. There is something about the change of nature from summer to autumn, with its amazing warm colors, the smell of pumpkin spice everywhere, and the anticipation of the upcoming holidays that makes me even more antiques-crazy than I am. Where better than this bucolic setting to browse through rows and rows of some of the most beautiful things we have found from days gone by?
So, whether you are planning your trip to the beautiful North Georgia mountains, or are lucky enough to live here, we hope you will take some time to visit Hidden Treasures (now Wonderland Antiques and Curiosities) to see what “new” old things we have in store.
