Fall Colors!





Focus on the pine needle branch with muted bright colors. 



Connie and I took a short afternoon drive yesterday afternoon.  Some color starting, but still not in full color yet.  If the rain and wind doesn't ruin things, next week should be better.
Wonder what makes a branch grow so crooked?
Still a few patches of wild flowers - Wild Asters.   I love all the colors God has made.  Will have more pictures next week.  We're getting drizzle today - so no sun to filter through the leaves.
 In southern MN the rain has been coming down for a couple of days, and in the area where one of our daughters lives, they got over 4-5 inches yesterday!
I'm off to an auction today.  Won't stay long if everything is wet and soggy. 
Have a great day everyone!

We've not had a frost yet, unusual for us, and our trees haven't begun to change. Your photos are lovely and a wonderful reminder of God's goodness to us...in all seasons. Thanks!

How nice that you and Connie got out for a drive - that sounds nice and the pictures are pretty. I love your new profile photo too with your granddaughter. Let us know how the auction is and I look forward to more Autumn leaves too.

Your header is wonderful and so are your photos. The colors here are changing at different rates, some are fully changed , some are half changed and some havent even started and are loosing their leaves , its strange how that works. Have a great day !
