Hello there! How is your Autumn going? We are having one of the most colorful Autumn seasons for many years. To be honest I've been stunned by the beautiful colors of the leaves this year. So.. I've been snapping some photos to share with you. This tree was in the LA Fitness parking lot! A maple.
There are these trees in their lot too and they're rather uncommon in Oregon.. do you know what it is?
The leaves are long and thin.
I went swimming on Friday and it was a gorgeous day - sunny and brisk and breezy. When I pulled into our circular driveway I opened the sun roof of my car and snapped some photos up through the weeping Birch with yellow leaves and the red of the Pin Oak tree. The Walnut tree leaves are still green and half yellow.
Little round yellow birch leaves and some of the red Pin Oak leaves.
The Pin Oak is gloriously red with some green and the winds are blowing them off slowly.. sitting on the deck they float down around you.
A close up of the leaves.. they are very mottled when the sun is shining through them.
Kristi is a very good chicken keeper. She cleaned the chicken coop yesterday and spread fresh grass hay in their run/yard. I thought it would be a good day to take some photos of the girls. She opens the gate each day a ways and stands there while they nibble on the green grass.
I love the feathers on the Silver Laced Wyandotte.
There are two Silver Laced Wyandottes, a Buff Orpington, 2 Ameracaunas, a Banty, a Welsummer and a Red Sexlink. Do you see the photo bomber? Meeka, our son Shawn's German Shepherd.
The weather was fine enough for the boys to be enjoying their trampoline.
The inside of the coop with fresh pine shavings.
Yesterday was another glorious day, we sat out on the deck and enjoyed the warm sun and the red leaves twirling their way down from the tree in the breeze.
I must say I'm not looking forward to the trees being naked.
The boys got the railings back up and we plan to paint them white at some point. They also got the lamp post back up, but one bolt broke so they have to get some new lag bolts to get it secured to the new deck. I'm thinking we should paint the deck step backs red. We still have to add the new step boards. All in good time. :-)
I've been having fun with the life-size skeleton Dayle brought home for me. I've been posing his arms and after I took this photo I posed his legs like he is dancing.. lol!
The boys carved some pumpkins for Halloween.
My Japanese Maple is turning a brilliant red.
Aren't these leaves breathtakingly red?
And lo and behold there was a 4th of July rose in bloom!
And a last Double Delight rose was in bloom and now it's in a vase on the table beside my easy chair. :-)
A Chrysanthemum from last year is in bloom. :-)
I finished a hat for my nephew who is currently battling a dread disease and is losing his hair. I will send this to him tomorrow. I used the Premiere Puzzle yarn, colorway is Cryptic.
