Fall is Definitely Here

This is my favorite fall color tree on our lot. It's a Red Oak and this was taken las week just as it was starting to change colors.

This is the same tree this week ...taken from a different angle and definitely much more colorful. Hopefully it will continue to turn and become deep red. Some years it does and some years it doesn't. 

The rest of the Oaks on our lot just turn brown and fall :( and there are a lot of them so we have tons of leaves that need to be raked and put into the compost bin. I've raked once.... a week ago and this is what it looks like today.

Lots and lots of leafs everywhere! 
I still haven't managed to get the garlic planted :( Have been down with some kind of virus all week. Hopefully next week will be better! 

Tomorrow I have to take the kitties to the vet to be neutered....hope they don't hate me for it :(
They are getting so big and so cuddlely. Spell check says that not a word but it fits for these two. They want to be held all the time.... when they are not terrorizing the dog or attaching a house plant. They are great company. Nothing like a warm and fuzzy purring kitty cuddled up to you when you don't feel so good yourself :)

Have a Great day everyone!!!


  1. Hi Carol. Just saw your comment. Feel free to try any pic. I'm honored you would want to. Would love to see the finished product.

  2. carol, thank you for your kind comment!

    i love your trees...oaks are my favorites and here in california we have them losing leaves ALL the time. :)

  3. Carol sorry you were feeling crummy. We have some kind of virus running around in CH's family. We are just trying to dodge it. We have mainly all Oaks that just turn brown and hold their leaves till Spring. We have tons of leaves though on the ground. CH sucks them up with the super sucker. The kitties won't hate you for getting them fixed :)
