Fall meets Christmas Dawn at the circle park at Front and Washington Streets in Natchitoches.  We seasonally decorate the city, and here’s a transition.  Christmas lights are up with the fall flowers.  Behind is the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame & Northwest Louisiana History Museum, and The Pioneer Pub with draft beer and pub food in a historic bank building.

Friday Flowers

Each year at the Autumn Equinox, Natchitoches gets thousands of visitors, Spider Lilies.   The glorious red-heads seem to pop up all over. My favorite location is the Wells-Tauzin House.  Carol Wells keeps the front yard in a natural state with as little manicuring as possible, as befits a home built in the 1740’s.  Over the years it served as a trading post, a warehouse, and finally in the 1960’s the Wells family restored it using historically correct materials and techniques as their home.  I passed the house on a foggy dawn this week and snapped this image.
