Our 5 maple trees are just about spent. There are a few stragglers left hanging on today. It's such a briefly beautiful season isn't it?
There was a branch in our maple tree (below) that snagged the telephone line into the house so Murray stood on top of the step ladder while I braced it (!!) and cut it off. He almost fell. Almost!
Our pretty maple ~ one of 5 in our yard ~ taken a week ago.
I didn't let the beautiful orange coloured leaves go to mulch just yet and stuck them in my rusty old milk can on the front porch.
This was one of my notecards yesterday.
Yesterday the leaves on these branches had dried up and more had fallen.
I was at the hair salon this morning and, being early, waited in the car for a few minutes. I noticed the beautiful fall colours of the trees along the walking trail behind me so got out and took a few pictures with my phone.
Isn't the colour gorgeous?
How is the fall colour in your area?
Thanks for all your visits and comments on my 'notecards' yesterday. It's such a fun meme and I enjoy visiting the other participants.
Friday I'm off to Moncton with my best girlfriend for our annual reunion of friends from Bible school. It's been 42 years since we all met for the first time at Bible school and we have been enjoying these little reunions for a few years now. There are usually about a dozen of us that gather in a host home for supper, a sleep (?) over, and breakfast the next morning. This year we are going to have a tour of the school that is now Crandall University and has been on a new campus for about 15 years now. Lots of changes to see.
I'll be back with a post on our drive from last Sunday before I leave though.
