Autumn Beauty

A rainy morning brought in some cooler weather this afternoon. I went out for the mail and was captivated by the beauty of the colors of the trees and the yellow leaves laying all over the ground. I pulled out the camera and took a few pictures.

It seems like the last few days the trees have really started to turn. Most of the trees around our property turn yellow in the autumn, except for the Crepe Myrtles by the house that turn a beautiful fiery red around the end of November each year. The pond area is especially beautiful with all of the trees turning and falling down into the pond. The pond is very low right now due to our drought this summer, but the banks of the pond are covered in yellow leaves – a lovely sight!

I love when the leaves start to fall all over the driveway each year. By a few weeks from now there will be a thick blanket of leaves here ~

It was a very nice walk out to the mailbox. The changing seasons are such a wonderful blessing from the Lord! Are the leaves changing where you are?

  1. It looks beautiful there. Glad to see you are OK. I haven’t blogged in ages. We are doing fine here. Aiden is 3 years old…time is flying by.

  2. Thanks for posting beautiful photos. Here in Osaka leaves are changing colors. In a few weeks maple leaves will turn red. Let’s enjoy the colors!
