My photography skills are seriously lacking - I know this.
But this fall our yard has been so pretty,
I had to at least try and capture a few of my views.
These pictures don't come close to capturing what my eyes see, but it's the best I could do.
when summer turned into fall, I was really quite bummed.
I wasn't ready for summer to be over yet;
I still had things I'd wanted to do....
fall means winter is next.
And I'm really not ready for that!
We went out to Natural Dam a few weeks ago,
and the color had already peaked,
and many of the trees had already lost all of their leaves.
I was so sad - all the ugly is just right around the corner. pooh!
In addition to this fall being especially pretty, though,
it seems to be hanging on....
I guess that's why I've been especially grateful for the color that remains ~ it all feels like a glorious bonus to me.
(and the beautiful weather that has accompanied it at times has been a lovely bonus, too)
At least there will be a bit of color in the chicken coop this winter :-)
