Fall Colors at Home

Fall happens to be my favorite time of the year.  The change in weather means sweaters, warm blankets,  delicious soups, and certainly a lot more baking & roasting at my home.  It also means that nature is about to give us one of the most breathtaking transformations during the year.  Nothing beats the colors of Fall and around our house it really is a sight to behold.  During my daily walks I try to bring along my trusted camera to capture, catalog & perhaps share what nature is doing on the property.  This is but a small glimpse of what we've been encountering here the past few days.  I hope you enjoy these pictures.

 

Maple leaves behind the house.

 
The glade on the eastern side of the house is experiencing bright shades of chartreuse and blazing yellows.


The driveway.  Leaves are already beginning to fall.



One of my favorite pictures.  I'm standing in front of the Barn looking toward the driveway & the dense canopy of trees across the way.

 
Just look at the colors.  So many shades.  Absolutely breathtaking!

 
Across the street, my neighbors have some gorgeous trees.

 
Maple trees in various stages of transformation.

 
Looking up toward the field, it too is experiencing fall's beauty.

 
The meadow itself has had its last mowing.


This is the same trio of dogwood trees I've documented before.  The leaves turn a stunning crimson.

 
Look at the holly & dogwood next to each other.  Isn't nature beautiful?

  1. David, your photos are beautiful. Fancy living in such colour, I have to travel to find colours like that! The pops of red are stunning. Thank you for your lovely comment the other day.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed the photos Pru! When I lived in California, we never had the pleasure of experiencing fall like we do now. Have a good day!
