I'm trying to embrace fall one last time before winter sets in.
Yep, I'm still knee deep in Christmas ornaments but I didn't want to miss
the last of the fall color.
I think this is the last week for it in my area.
The shrubs in my yard are showing nice color now...
...but after last weeks windstorm the trees were
forced to shed a ton of leaves.
I usually don't have to rake these until Thanksgiving week.
And, yes, I still need to put my garden to bed for winter!
With the time change last weekend, I was
able to take some photos of the trees on my way to work.
Last week was probably peak in my town but some pretties linger
south of me near work.
It's a lovely drive down a country road next to a small river.
I pass several old barns along the way including this one.
This tree top looks like it is on fire!
I love this old barn, so welcoming!
This is the main drag of the town I work in.
Those gold leafed trees on the left just lead you to the red tree up ahead.
A partial shot of this maple ignoring the ugly telephone pole just to the right.
It was a topic on conversation last week at work.
We decided it was an Autumn Blaze Maple.
This is just down the street from the maple above.
It's a lovely street with huge old trees and equally huge old houses.
It's a wonderful street to drive on year round but especially this time of year.
Do you have any favorite drives or streets?
Welcome to this weeks
Cottage Style Party!
Did everyone have a spooky Halloween?
It was a chilly and rainy evening in my town on
I gave out handfuls of candy to all
the ghosts and goblins so they
could hopefully fill their bags and
go home quicker.
And so I could go inside and have
a hot apple cider to warm up!
Let's see how your Halloween went....
That bisque jack-o-lantern is so sweet!
And what a clever use of old ice tongs!
