Welcome Autumn!

Fall is in the air here!  I know that some of you have already had snow, but here in Oklahoma, the trees have just started to turn. 

I am very much an Autumn person.  I thrive in the cooler less humid air and the beauty of the season.

It’s time to close the door on Summer and indeed Welcome Autumn!

The Mums bloom in abundance, combining with the colors of summer to produce a new kind of beauty.

006

The ornamental grasses take on a completely different look.

009

Each plant is different in their color and beauty.

I can’t resist the beauty of the beautiful oranges, reds, and yellows.  I could cut armfuls and arrange them in vases in the house.  Throw in some tall bare branches and twigs and, to me at least, your bouquet is every bit as beautiful as summer’s cutting garden.

Fall leaves reflect beautifully in the recent rain waters.

Looks like I may need to clean the bird bath!

Too chilly for wading though.  Even if it was 76 degrees here today!

My grandfather’s wheel barrow.  I think it looks like a piece of art, nestled among the fall foliage as it is.

The trees in the park behind our house are just beginning to find their first blush of fall colors.

The birds have either flown or are preparing for the winter ahead.

Miss Willow is busy stalking anything that moves!  Silly girl.  I could NOT get her to look up to have her picture taken for anything!  She absolutely was not interested!

Thanks to each and every one of you who visited my blog during Vanessa’s Halloween party Saturday.  I appreciate every comment so much.  I am still trying to catch up with my visiting.  I have certainly seen some beautiful decorations and read some fascinating stories during my visits.  I will (hopefully) be able to visit everyone by the end of the week!

Have a lovely week and Happy Autumn!  I know that it OFFICIALLY arrived awhile back, but I always need those gorgeous colors to put me in the mood, as it were!
