🍁 🍂 Each year near Thanksgiving our massive Pin Oak tree turns brilliant red and I love it! We are blessed with a sunny day after several days of rain.
I have to leap at the chance to capture it when it turns the perfect red as soon the color will dull to a red-brown and our famous East Wind will scatter these leaves around the grounds.
I set my iPhone to wide angle lens which encompasses the whole tree but it makes it look small and it's huge.
Actually, a lot of the leaves are on the ground so it was fuller 2 weeks ago.
The farm place hasn't been very photogenic of late with grey and rainy days so I snapped a shot in the sunshine.. the chestnut leaves are gold and brown and the ground is covered with bristly nuts. Soon the deciduous trees will be naked.
Wide angle shot.
While I was out on the deck the sun was illuminating the long needle pine I dug up when it was 6 inches tall.. I have got to find just the right place to plant it and get it in the ground. But I can't figure out where!
Dayle dug this one up also and it's his Bonsai tree. Problem is I would get upset when he'd snip all the healthy little shoots off.. I begged him to give it a break and let it grow. It's taken a few years to fill out a bit. I like it better now!
During a dark evening I lit the candles on the table. I so enjoy candlelight. In fact, I have ordered some beeswax sheets in green and red and I will be rolling my own candles as soon as they arrive. :-) Check this space next week for a post about how to make your own candles. I plan to gift them to friends and family for Christmas.
I had to share this photo I saw on Facebook. Isn't it pretty?
I have ordered a narrower Christmas tree which hopefully will arrive next week and as soon as it's delivered I want to put it straight up and decorate it. It's a thing! A lot of people are over 2020 and need some JOY and are putting their tree up early. I'm on board with that - how about you?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
