The bottom is supposed to drop out, temperature-wise, this weekend, so I decided I’d get some late autumn photos before nothing is left but sticks!
This sugar maple is decked out in reds and yellows
What says “Autumn” more than a yellow Chrysanthemum?
This Dogwood has all sorts of pretty colors, from shades of gold to crimson and bronze
I don’t remember my Crepe Myrtle turning this pretty last year!
Ooh, looks like somebody’s going to have to do some raking!
This miniature Japanese Maple is a profusion of brilliant red leaves
Even sidewalks get into the act — some feature leaves so deep you can really swoosh through them!
Here’s another yard just begging for a rake
In a sea of reds and yellows, this purple mum truly stands out — I like to think it knows how special it is!
Has Autumn been spectacular in your neck of the woods, too?
Note: So far, nobody has correctly guessed my Darling Doggie’s name! But you still have until 6 p.m. CDT on Sunday the 28th to guess. If nobody comes up with a correct answer by then, we’ll just have to toss all the names into a hat and draw one out — I’ll announce the winner on Monday the 29th (and make arrangements for shipping the earrings to them). Thanks to everybody who played along!
