Looking Back to The Fall Colors

As we step into November, let's take a look back at some fall scenes.
I love all the colors of fall, the cooler temperatures, and the feeling that we are slowing down and getting ready for the winter. Have I mentioned that I actually like winter?

Somehow this old tree trunk caught my attention. It is perhaps still useful as a home for some birds.I imagine the woodpeckers would like it.


Every leaf is vying  for the honor of being the best and the most colourful.


On one of our frost mornings,I came home to find these leaves of the deck railing.They made a perfect photo opportunity.


But, you know me, just one shot would never do.

Almost the same as the one above, but slightly different. Such a simple scene, yet it brought me joy as I was capturing these images.


To Think About:

What would you have today, if you only had those things you were thankful for yesterday?

  3. All your pictures are great! Let's see....what would I have today if I only had what I was thankful for yesterday, That would be Jesus and what He did for us on the cross, his mercy & forgiveness and for sending us His Holy Spirit. Also I'm always thankful for Jeep, his family, my family, our home and material blessings, our church and too many more things to mention here!

  7. Hi Ruth, While I was looking through this post I smiled because our outlook on nature is so similar. The caption for your second picture … “Every leaf is vying for the honor of being the best and the most colourful.” You said that so perfectly! Yesterday I was out for a walk and had the camera with. Along the sidewalk were all the colorful leaves that seemed to be calling for me to stop and snap a picture. The power of nature is so awesome. It really makes me happy to see nature’s power celebrated with beautiful photos like the ones you share here. Thank you, as always, for sharing. And one more thing … Your November header is excellent!

  9. Thank you for sharing your fall colors with us. Autumn colors came late to Tennessee, and today high winds are tearing leaves from the trees. Hopefully there will still be some color left on the trees after this front passes!
