Nestled in the Appalachians, we lucky folk in Asheville get treated to a brilliant show in the fall. But this year’s foliage pageantry is over-the-top—the maple, poplar, and sumacs have outdone themselves. The leaf peepers are out in full-force and will get an eyeful pretty much anywhere in the area from the mountains surrounding downtown to the meandering Blue Ridge Parkway. After the green lushness of summer I was taken by surprise when seemingly overnight the leaves in the mountains surrounding my house exploded into riots of autumnal beauty.
This inspired me to see what the talented artists at Etsy were doing to herald in the season. I was not disappointed.
