Hi everyone it’s Walter here. We sure have been enjoying a colorful fall around here.
Don’t forget that you can click on any image to see it bigger (I strongly suggest you start with the first picture…BOL).
First let me show you our Katsura tree that is in the middle of the yard.
Mom and dad say this is the best fall color we have ever seen on this tree in the 25 years they have been living here (boy that must make them older than dirt). Next up are a couple of Japanese maple trees.
Now let’s go in for a closer look at that tree on the left. It almost looks like it is on fire!
In the back of the yard one of the most colorful shrubs is just starting to turn color.
Here is the view from the back of the yard looking towards the house showing the Stewartia, Maple and Hickory trees.
That Stewartia tree is a little one compared to the other two but it sure puts on a great display of color.
Last but not least our dad caught this shot of a beautiful rainbow over our backyard a couple of days ago.
Rainbows always make us think of our angel sisters and friends that are living on the other side of the Bridge.
It’s a good thing we got all those pictures because we had some big winds blow through yesterday that knocked most of the leaves off the trees.
Mom is very busy with more crafting projects (something about a wedding shower gift for her niece) and will be out of town later next week (for the shower). We haven’t been able to comment much but we have been reading all our friends blogs and commenting when we can.
