Late Autumn Morning

My Red Sunset Maple in the front yard! So beautiful!

I'm headed out to get groceries and to buy the hot dogs and buns for our Fall Fest on Sunday.  We'll be roasting them over a campfire, and having all kinds of fun - hay rides, an outdoor viewing of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, a candy toss.

I'm wanting to string lights in these trees and have some tables and chairs set under them.  It's going to be a good time!  If I don't post on the weekend you'll know why, but I promise photos and a full report on Monday!

Have a great weekend!  Sunday is November 1st already!

  3. That tree would look amazing with lights. Have fun!

  4. Sounds like an awesome weekend! Have a great time

  5. That is one beautiful tree! Do you have some glycerin? Available in the pharmacy section. Run out there and grab a sprig or two or a small branch and put in a vase or container with some glycerin in water...some people say half a cup...I say a tablespoon...change the water and glycerin weekly and you can preserve it through Thanksgiving. I'm eyeing my neighbor's red oak leaves and yellow maple leaves, but I think I'd be rotten to do it.
