I can't believe our autumn colors are already starting to fade; the leaves are falling and those that remain will soon be turning shades of brown. I love this time of year and hate to see it slowly slip away. But, I love winter and it will be upon us before we know it.
I intended to take some autumn photos sooner but other things have come first so this morning when I heard rain and wind blowing, before I climbed out of bed, I was afraid I had waited too long, certain that our beautiful colors would be all over the ground. I should have waited and looked out the window before I worked myself up into a self induced panic, there were plenty of leaves on the trees, LOL!
This view is from our deck right off the family room.
Brrrr...this makes me think of winter and, oooohhh, the warm fire these logs will create. I love the leaves wind swept up next to these logs. We had to cut down 5 trees this past spring.
The view out our family room window. The platform in the tree is the zip line launch.
This is down the driveway. I love how the leaves are swept into a swirl of color when we drive down our lane, it's simply a sight a photo could not do justice to.
Of course SadieMae was on hand for the autumn photo tour. It's always surprising that she will sit to have her picture taken. I must admit, though, she was more patient this time; like a child that gives in because they have no other choice but to behave. It's almost an impossibility to snap her mug while she is looking at the camera. She is usually looking left and right for anything that might be moving and I can detect the twitches of a near launch when she sees something move. She's such a pretty girl.
Still not looking....! Ahhhh...so cute!
Till Next Time
