Fall colors

The colors are at peak here, but it's been raining all day and I think it won't be long till the branches are bare. Here are some pictures I've taken in the last few days to show you what it looks like around here.




Not much color here yet, but I like the look of this country road!

 

I like the different colors on this tree.

 



This tree isn't too colorful, but I thought the way they left it in the middle of the road was so unusual and I had to share it.

 



I always enjoy the bright yellow trees and the way the leaves contrast with the bark.

 

Our wooded area has some pretty trees too.

 

Last - our road!

I love this pictures. We don't get many fall leaves in Phoenix and I miss that! The few leave that do change won't do that until January!

I love when I can see lots of different colors in one view. WE are finally having a bit more color here. I need to try to get a few pics before it's all brown. Sigh….

Pretty!!! We don't get this color like everyone up north unless we drive about 300 miles to the hill country in Texas.

So I really enjoy your shares Mari.

So pretty! Our leaves are FINALLY starting to turn around here but as it normally happens, by the time they turn, the almost immediately fall off the trees. It doesn't leave much time to enjoy the beauty.

Your pictures of the colored leaves is beautiful. I love the one with the tree standing in the middle of the road. How unique is that?

Oh your road is so pretty! And that yellow maple is magnificent. Our colors have been slow but today it rained all day and cooler temps have finally arrived, so I think it won't be long before we are at what passes for "peak" around here. I'm going to East Tennessee on Sunday to spend some time with Audrey. It ought to be fairly perfect color in the mountains and around her place. I'm excited. October being over makes me sad, though. It's my favorite month and it goes so fast.

Hi Mari! It's peak color around here too, and I loved it today. I like looking up through the trees to see the leaf color against the blue sky. Just jaw-dropping.

That tree in the middle of the road is so unusual!
Happy Sunday :)

Having been in AZ for 9 days all I saw was cacti! Not an orange leaf in sight!

Can't say the same about the UK. :D
