Falling...

Now, I can tell you that the minute JP sees the title of this post he will think that I'm reporting one of my many stumbles. I am a klutz and there's no help for it. He always says that he thinks I should be wrapped in bubble wrap when he's away. He's a funny guy.

No, this post is celebrating this season of change in the weather. The temperatures are mild, the trees are changing color and I love it. One of the showiest trees we have as far as fall color is this maple.

The dogwoods are beautiful too.


This is a different kind of dogwood and it has these little red balls. Does anyone know what kind of dogwood this is. It's the one that has flowers after it's put on its leaves in the spring.


Guess what! As I walked around taking these pictures I noticed that there were strawberries still on the plant. Uh, sorry honey, I kind of ate them as I went along. Trust me, they weren't that good...
Our Purple Thai Basil is beautiful now as it goes to seed.


The gang was so interested in the cat and I as we walked around the front yard. Well, most everyone was interested.....


Speedbump started getting sleepy sitting there in the sun and I left her alone for her little nap after I snapped this yawn.


Happy fall blessings to all of you from all of us in the holler.

Mum loves the colours on your maple tree. The seasonal cycle continues on our side of the world, but we are currently doing the opposite to you. On Thurdsday mum got some new strawberry plants to add to her patch and some basil seedlings to plant for summer.

I've been busy watching the cat next door!

Woofs,
Riley

Fall is such a pretty season. Our colors are just starting to appear. Our streets are lined with some gorgeous red maples - so very pretty.

Great catch of the big yawn:)

Hi Mrs. JP
I want to thank you for visiting my blog today and all the other days with your sweet comments. You are much appreciated. Also, I agree with your last comment on my blog. I really would not want to go back in time for other reasons. However, I do miss having little girls around.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

God Bless....Christa

Beautiful tree colors, ours have not started changing as much quite yet. Hope y'all had a great weekend!

The trees and bushes turning are always so lovey to see. You have quite the audience as you walk around. I think I will download that pic of Speed Bump yawning. That way I can bring it up to look at before I go to bed to make me really sleepy:)

I had to chuckle over you snatching up the last of the strawberries... isn't that called *ahem* "quality control"? *LOL*
