Beautiful Autumn colours,
they are so warm and welcoming.

Hope that you are enjoying your weekend

Damp and dreary here in Ireland
so all the leaves look a bit like mush today!!!

Have enjoyed yours.

Lovely colours. My grandparents had a liquid amber trees in the middle of their backyard, it was such a novelty to have fallen leaves to rake while visiting as there were no deciduous trees near our home.

Pretty leaves love the colors.

So gorgeous. Love the colors.

Yep...It is wonderful to finally be back online. It was awful. You do not realize how cut off from friends you are until something like this happens. The lines had to be totally redone. Love your autumn shot with the beautiful blue sky in the background. We went hiking all day yesterday and that is were I found the OLD hand pump. The water definitely left a lot to be desired. genie

Gorgeous colors and nice composition. The colors around here are few and not very bright, but we saw a lot of bright reds, yellows, and orange in PA and NY. The best part of our vacation.

Splendid Little Stars said...

lovely photo! Sweetgum trees are so pretty in the Fall.

cheryl said...

I'm always fascinated by the spiky spheres I gather in the neighborhood. I didn't realized they're from the maple tree... I grew up w/maple trees and ours didn't have those... we had the airplane-shaped seed pots that twirled through the air, landing in the soil... sprouting new growth.

blessings on your journey...
