Fall in the holler...

Last week, before we had a really windy storm I got out and took a few pictures of our fall colors.  The morning that the rains came I ran out and gathered what I thought to be "the perfect" specimens that I could find.  I had fun standing under our big Sycamore tree while the rain misted.  Then, with my treasures, I put my head down and made my way up the hill to the house (hairdo trashed for the day, haha, but who cares)

The day before the storm.

My beautiful leaves spread out over the backside of two placemats.

  Isn't amazing how they differ in in size and color?  Our Creator didn't leave a boring place for us to live but beauty for us to enjoy and friends to share it with.  

You know, after all that, those trees didn't lose all their leaves.  Some trees did, sure. But the ones that are left are all the more beautiful for hanging on; at least, I think so!  Blessings to you all from the holler...

The colors of your leaves are lovely. It is spring here, so I mostly see shades of green!

The leaves on the place mats looks like artwork. Did you preserve any leaves after taking that photo (e.g. dried between the pages of a good book, or ironed between wax paper)?

Hi, What beautiful shapes and colors you have. One thing I miss about Ca. is the diverse trees and foliage.
Thanks for sharing!
Hugs, Noreen

Love that little pumpkin you got! Did I see those at Hobby Lobby? I was in there the other day and almost bought one that looked like it. Your leaves are beautiful - I'm partial to those red maple ones!

Good for you to make your own liquid soap! I've not done that but I should - liquid soap is so expensive and I'm all for saving money. Have a great week Mrs JP!
