Our weather is perfect for the season.. chilly, a bit rainy off and on. I just took the Lumix out to capture the Vine Maple in our woods. It felt good to come back in the warm house and sit by the fire and download the images I'd captured. :-)
See it back there.. the hydrangea has turned colors and so is the Japanese red maple. It's leaves have turned a brilliant magenta!
It's nice to have a tree that turns colors against the evergreen Douglas Firs and Cedars.. and some of the trees leaves fall off while still green, such as the Alder.
This house is over 100 years old and I am sure the trees growing in our woods were harvested by the early inhabitants to cut up and use for firewood.. for the wood cookstove and the fireplace.
The red maple leaves are falling into the creek and pond now.. kind of pretty.
As I headed inside I snapped a photo of my life-size skeleton Dayle surprised me with a few years ago.
Back in the warmth..
When I was decorating the dining table for the Halloween time I took all the little pumpkins and put them on the tv cabinet. Some of them are candle holders and I light tea light candles in them for the evening.
My orchid bloomed again.. it really amazes me that it blooms like it does.
Mocha is enjoying her little furry cuddle bed. I'm so happy she took to it. I thought it might be too small for her but it looks to me to be just right. Oh.. the cast iron doorstop that I thought was a West Highland White Terrier but my blog reader LacyKnitsDaily told me it's a white Scottie. Neat! Click on her name to visit her Etsy shop where she sells her really cute stitch markers!
I'm feeling a bit funky today so no swimming. But I have plenty to do to get ready for our trip next week. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.. any fun plans?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
