Change is here...

It's been windy and rainy here this weekend, we even had snow on Friday!  That means a lot of the leaves have blown off the trees, and the beautiful Fall colors we've been enjoying are nearly done.
Some trees still have their leaves and there's still some beauty to be found in the yard.  Here's a few photos of what I found while walking in the yard.

 Our pile of pumpkins still looks good and give a nice splash of color.


I love the feathery fronds of the grasses this time of year.


The flowers on the hydrangea tree have changed from the pure white of summer, to an antique rose color.


A different type of ornamental grass shines in the setting Autumn sun.


 The globe thistles start to spread their seeds.


 This chair looks pretty sitting in the falling leaves.


Even the fungus on this tree trunk sports a pretty design under the last few leaves that fall.

I'm enjoying the last bits of Fall.  It won't be long till everything looks white.

You have such a pretty yard, Mari, during any season! I love you pile of pumpkins. I'm thinking I need to copy, since we are sprucing up for the Thanksgiving holiday! Great post!

And it won't be long before Mari can't stay warm. Cuddling that new little baby should help. xoxo

I loved the walk through your yard, Mari! It looks like such a beautiful place! I especially like the color of the blossoms from your hydrangea tree! Reminds me of one of the wallpaper patterns I liked when looking through designs for my room!

Such great pictures, even as fall winds down. Those old mushrooms are amazingly beautiful, aren't they?

Pretty!!! I especially like the wrought iron chair and the few leaves clinging to the seat amongst the blanket of leaves on the ground. Oh, and love the reference to 'antique rose' for a color of the blossom!!

I really love the last bit of fall left in your area. The leaves are pretty much gone from the trees here and they look so pretty on the ground.

Fall is so interesting for shape and color. Great Photo's.

Good morning, Mari! Your pictures are very pretty and it was a treat looking at them.

We had a light dusting of snow last night and the leaves are all gone on our trees yet there is still beauty to be found - it's all in the eye of the beholder :)

Happy Tuesday to you!

I love these photo's, Mari. We have very little color here, but the leaves are bountiful. I worked out there yesterday, and can hardly walk today. :)

Jennifer said...

Such beautiful fall scenery there. I really like these photos. Any baby news yet?

You have some nice fall pictures. Something strange happened when we got snow this past weekend. We got leaves and everyone else got snow. I still can't figure that out.
