So I received an email today from a "friend" with a bunch of beautiful trees from all over the world. I looked at the pics and told him there were so many beautiful trees here it was almost crazy. We are fortunate to live in an area of the world where things are so lovely. Winter can be Challenging but even that can be lovely. We are so lucky to have this most awesome season before the onset of Winter.
Looking UP at the gorgeous leaves. I wish I had a nice camera ...
More of the neighbors (I can see this from my kitchen window. That field on the left is full of sweet corn in the summer!! Yummy stuff.

Trying to be artsy fartsy about some leaf pictures. Trust me ...this doesn't do justice to the amazing color.

My toes covered in leaves!! The orange polish (called "A Good Mandarin  is hard to find') almost matches.

I just had to show off the amazing mum I picked up at the farmers market last weekend.

More awesome color from the road side.

If I had a nice camera you would see how Absolutely Amazing this is ....doesn't do it justice ...I promise!

More crappy roadside pics of the Beauty.

We live just a very few miles from the Iowa/Minnesota border AND Jesse James road. Named  because there is a small cave where Jesse James and his crew of nasties stayed when they were on their way to Northfield to rob a bank.

Sumac and some bossies and in the background.

The Hesper Friends church with the amazing trees.

More of the Friends Church with the blue recycling container in the background.

Looking UP at the color.

A cool stepping stone at the Blue Owl
The Blue Owl (aka Blue Bird -it's really your choice).

This is our neighbors house. Evidently it used to be a hotel in which Jesse James and his nasties stayed after they got tired of the cave.

This is the street right out in front of our house.

Even the garden looks like fall! We still haven't dug the potatoes and some beets are still out there along with some kale.
This is the neighbors backyard. Lovely huh?
So NOW you've really seen some lovely trees. I really do wish I had the talent of a real photographer but I did what I could with what I have.
In the meantime, I'm out finding myself ...
