It won't be long now before all of the lovely leaves are gone. Leaves fall in the fall. Then there is just the raking up to do.
While they last I have been soaking in the beauty of the colors in our yard.
Dogwood and maples
This dogwood is glowing outside our home office window right now, as the sky darkens, bringing the expected rain.
The flowers on the kitchen table are from the grocery store now.
Picking them is easier, but maybe less fun.
