One Last Look

With windy conditions the past few days, leaves are falling faster than they turn. Record low temperatures, down into the 20s, are predicted to arrive next week. So here is one last look at the autumn foliage in my garden, as it is going, going, though not quite gone:

Coming soon, for those who are bored with autumn:

Now where did I put my mittens?

Your photos are a joy. How could anyone be bored with fall???Certainly not me. I spent many happy hours horseback riding in the state park and the sounds of the horses feet through the leaves and the wonderful earthy smells will never be forgotten. Your photos are a wonderful reminder of those times.

Is it really going to be that cold so suddenly? Our temperatures haven't changed very much, still pleasantly warm, thought it may well rain tomorrow so it will feel cooler. Your wood is still so beautiful, enjoy it while you can.

You still have wonderful colours to enjoy, hope they last a bit longer for you. We need cold temperatures at night time to make our colours brighter, we are having our first cold nights tonight and tomorrow, so hope for some really good colours in the next few days.

We are at the same place in the season. The ground is covered with leaves, much more yellow than red. I thought of doing some raking today but first I think I'll let some more leaves come down.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I've heard buttermilk will grow more moss. Winter is probably not the time, tho.

The seasons seem to pass so quickly! I hope that you enjoy what's left of autumn in your area and that winter treats you gently.

Fall color is fleeting. You captured the best, at just the right time. I am not ready for temps in the 20s.

Love all that rich autumn colour in your garden Debs! Most leaves are not quite gone but whiles there the colours are fab!

How could anyone be bored with fall? I just love how the trees turn colors, even though I don't have the variety of color that you do. And I love to see leaves falling and dancing on the wind. But lows in the 20's sounds like winter will be arriving in your garden! I hope you enjoy the crunch of the leaves under your feet for these last few days.

Your Japanese maples provide such brilliant color in the fall garden! We're in the same boat as you are, many of the leaves blew off of the trees here too.

Your mittens are in the cupboard along with your winter hat.
Your flip flops.

Leaves on, or off your garden is beautiful.

The sweetgum trees have such a brilliant red color! I just love fall - it's my favorite season! Sadly, it's about over...

Each season has its beauty, these photos are divine and I look forward to your winter garden shots too.

I love your stream and benches , bird housed and animal art, I need to take more pictures of the fall leaves, to look at during the winter when it's too cold to stay outside. I still have some flowers blooming, knockout roses and mums and coxcombs.

You are so talented at using layers and textures in your garden. Marvelous! Isn't it sad when fall fades away? All of our trees are bare except for the ornamental pears lining our block. After they are finished, it will be bland till spring. Phooey.
