There is an allée of Sweet Gum trees bordering the property of Mt. Hood Community College on Troutdale Road and each year I admire them greatly. So on the way home from swimming on Monday I pulled over on the side of the road and snapped away.
Each tree has it's own personality.. they turn at different times and different colors.. it quite literally amazes me.
A shot down the allée showing how they are all in different stages of leaf change.
Kristi brought down the 2 bins of Halloween decorations so I've put up a few.. more to come.. :-)
I even have a creepy 17 inch skeleton lady with a cute little purple satin and black lace dress hanging from the light fixture.
My trio of handblown glass pumpkins.
My funny cat sculpture holding up his/her hat.. do you think this is a girl or boy? There is a black cape blowing in the breeze behind.
I found this set up front at a pumpkin patch gift shop.. it's all porcelain.. the fence and the three cute little trick-or-treaters in front of it. My porcelain scarecrow candleholder and the cute little witch figurine.. and my grey velvet pumpkin.
Kristi brought this decoration for me.. hey.. wait a minute! :-)
Kristi also brought home this fun little decoration.
The rain is here. It's much harder to pack up a swim bag and head to the pool when it's 46 deg. F and raining. But I'm going to. I really am. :-) What are you up to this fine day? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
