Very Belated Fall Pictures

Sitting at my desk this morning and working, I realized that it's that time of year, where not only do I really miss the summer time colours, but I really miss the fall colours too. All I see are shades of brown, little bits of green, but mostly browns.  Leaves have long since fallen, grass has greened up just a bit, but that's because of the rain that we've had lately, it won't last long and then it will be brown too. I was thinking back to the beautiful September day when Jeff and I had a rare weekday afternoon together, and enjoyed it by going for a walk. 

I took my camera with because the colours were just spectacular. Here's a few of my favorites.
Standing on my driveway looking at our trees.

Looking down our street.

Sun through the leaves.

Beautiful red tree.

A row of trees by our Church.

Burgundy leaves.

Ornamental crab-apples.

The pond behind the cemetery.

Shades of red.
Here's a few of my fall visitors.
Mr. Blue Jay

A chubby squirrel.
I think it's time to fill the feeder again, doesn't take the greedy little sparrows long to empty it. I think the last time I filled it, it took them less than 24 hours to empty it. 
I'm glad I have these pictures to look back on as the colder weather moves in, and I will loose the little bits of green that are left to the white of winter's snow. 


  1. Great pictures!! But, your squirrel isn't chubby!!! You should see mine. LOL

  2. Wow, those trees are gorgeous! Here in Texas we get green or brown, no in between :)

  3. hi there! just popping over to answer you about the chairs i did- you should be able to achieve a very similar look if you make your own chalk paint with latex paint (there are several ways to do this if you google It). i would do that and just do maybe one coat, and heavily distress.
