Autumn: October's End

Remember this photo from a few weeks ago?

This is what that area looks like now.

The colors, while still beautiful, are not so vibrant now.  They are more russet like, and they will soon be gone.

 I'm so glad I have had this space to sit out and enjoy the beauty of the changing leaves and the cooler weather.

 My Red Sunset Maples in the front yard are beginning to change.  They always provide late season beauty.

 These are the neighbors next to us, and the view beyond them.  Our woods are a part of these woods.

These are the neighbors across the side street from us (we are on a corner).

As we drove to the state park yesterday we could see that while some trees have yet to turn, we would say that our area is past it's peak for changing leaves.  It's amazing the difference a week makes.

How is October looking at your home?

  2. What a lovely area, you live in. How nice to have your own "Storybook Woods"...

    Lots of our leaves have fallen, with days of wind and rain. But it is still beautiful today, with the sun shining. Yes, still beautiful.

    Happy rest of October,

  4. Beautiful color. It looks like many of your trees are in the woods where they won't need raking? Ohterwise you'll be busy>
