Hi everyone! Sorry we’ve been absent. There is no real excuse other than I, Cindy, have been working hard on a few crochet projects and have not had much blogging time because of it. You can’t hook and use the computer at the same time (at least I can’t). I need to find an eye control system so I can do both.
We have been enjoying some nice fall weather and our trees and shrubs are starting to put on a bit of a show. I thought I would share some views of our back yard that Charlie took earlier this week on a rainy day. (Be sure to click on the images to get a larger view)
The stewartia tree, right outside our back door, puts on a beautiful show every year and the hickory tree is a great backdrop for it.
Here is another view of those trees with some of the neighboring shrubs. I love the contrast of the dark burgundy leaves of the shrubs with the hickory tree.
The katsura tree really stands out this year. We don’t always get such beautiful color from it so this year is special.
Looking to the east a lot of trees and shrubs are changing color.
This Japanese maple is putting on a spectacular show and is complimented by the hydrangea and barberry.
Last but not least is another view of the katsura tree (my favorite thing in our yard) with the triflorum maple in the background to the left displaying its beautiful fall color.
I hope you enjoyed this view of our fall foliage. If we have some more nice color I will be sure to share with all of you.
