These trees are probably bare now as I took this photo over a week ago on Thanksgiving weekend at the orchard.
The spirea bush is beautiful with it's leaves turned to red.
I have a very small burning bush that is also red.
maple leaves barely hanging on
I took this photo on Monday in the sunshine. There weren't many leaves left on this tree by our driveway and there are less today.
Bare trees in our yard on a rainy Tuesday.
Murray has been diligent about raking up the leaves this fall. No mess on the lawn. We bagged some for roadside pickup and some went on the garden.
The hosta leaves have turned brown and yellow but some still look rather pretty and others have kind of melted down to the ground in a messy pile of soggy leaves.
I can't believe these two planters by the front porch are still going strong. Look at that Lobelia! It has bloomed all summer long.
I planted these containers the first week in June.
The plants looked pretty small back then and have filled out a lot.
I have the feeling that our weather is going to change soon though and we'll be getting that killing frost that eventually destroys any summer plants. It's going down to +2 C tonight and on the weekend it's going to go below freezing at night. I'm not going to try to save these now. I have never kept my plants going this long before as I usually dump them out on Thanksgiving weekend. This year I will dump them on the garden plot to be tilled in.
I have enjoyed the colour for over 5 months now. That's pretty good don't you think?
This is one colourful bird we'll be seeing around here all winter. It was filling it's crop one day and comes by a lot along with it's friends. (my bird feeder was red but has faded to pink!)
Thank you all for you visits and for leaving your kind comments.
I appreciate each one of you.
I wish you a beautiful day.
The sun is shining here and it's +3 at 9:30 am. Chilly!!
