Autumn in the Neighborhood

"Come said the wind
to the leaves one day,
come o'er the meadows
and we will play.
Put on your dresses of
scarlet and gold,
for summer is gone and the days grow cold."
A Child's Song from the 1880s

Fall color seemed to be long in coming here.  When it finally arrived, there was an explosion of color that lasted for an all too short time.  Of course, I suppose that is what makes it so special

Taken from our hallway looking out of the front door.  This was five days ago.  Today, almost all of those leaves are on the ground.

A neighborhood beauty.  I love the way it seems to be sheltering the small evergreens beneath it's branches.

Happy Fall!

  2. I love the little short poem and that tree is just magnificent. My favorite shot is the awesome green farms in front of that blazing tree. I love trees I loveferns

  3. So beautiful Bonnie !
    I love fall is my favorite season.
    Yesterday was so hot like summer !!
    And is spring !!
    Enjoy your Fall :)

  4. Hi Bonnie! So good to see you today! Your first picture is simply stunning! This is one of my favorite poems, and I had forgotten completely about it! I will copy it now.

  5. Very pretty! I'd say our best weekend of color was a week ago. As you say, enjoy it while it's here:@)

  6. I do so love your poem and your gorgeous tree! Happy fall! :)

  7. Such brilliant color! I love trees -- and those that you've shot are just majestic.

  8. That first photo is about as spectacular as it can get! How enjoyable to have that view out the front door. I think our leaves are behaving similarly. Maybe because it's been a weird weather year!

  9. Gorgeous red color on the tree outside your window! Every year, the colors seem different here. This year it was almost all golden yellow. Most are down now too.

  10. Lovely, Bonnie. I do miss those fall leaves in Florida!

  11. So pretty.

    I think Fall is winding down here. We will cool down
    over this weekend.

  12. Autumn was beautiful here in Colorado this year, and unusually warm. We had our first snow fall yesterday, so soon we will be on to winter! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. Your quote was our week here in eastern Kansas.
    As the week went by the more windy it got and the temps started dropping.

    Hopefully Thanksgiving will be warm.

    Enjoy your Sunday!!

  14. Bonnie, that bit of verse is completely new to me, and I love it! As beautiful as the autumn leaves are, bare trees are beautiful as well (though my husband does not agree!).

  15. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at


I always enjoy hearing from you, my blogging friends.
