Come See Autumn!

Happy Monday!

I have finally finished taking photos of the trees in my yard and around my neighborhood and wanted to share them with everyone today, especially Dwita. I told her I would do a post with our beautiful Fall leaves because she doesn't get the season of Autumn in her country. So Dwita, this one is especially for you! :)

We had some of the most beautiful weather last week. Not only were the temperatures nice and warm, the sky was so blue, with not a single cloud in sight for days and days! I can't tell you how much I love that! The colors of the leaves alone are beautiful, but when you look at them up against that bright blue sky, they're even more stunning! I took these pictures over the last several days.

These first two photos are of my "Autumn Blaze Maple" in my back yard. Love this tree!







This next one is of my "Burning Bush." It sits on the side of our garage. I should have taken this picture a few days earlier when it looked even better!





Here is my Sedum. I swear the color gets more pink every year!





These next two photos were taken on my way home from work, while driving in the car. Now don't get mad at me. . .I was really careful, I promise! This tree is very close to where I work and there are several of them, lining the entire road for about a mile.





Here's a group of trees on the side of the highway that I drive home on everyday. I love the mix of colors and plants. . . . .and just look at that sky!





The rest of the pictures are of trees in and around my neighborhood.













That's it for today! Hope you enjoyed the colors of Fall! Be sure to stop by tomorrow when I'll be sharing some photos of the cute little floral department where I work. It's all spruced up for the season and I think you'll enjoy seeing the fun items and colors!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! :)

I love your pics Barb! I'm laughing because the other day on the way home from work, I was taking pics of the trees too with my iPhone. :) We have some real beauties just like yours. The turning leaves are my favorite thing about fall! Can't wait to see your pics of the floral dept!

Beautiful! We are seeing the same colors in our area too! Love to see the pictures of your neighborhood. Can't wait to see your daily inspiration at the floral department. :)

Oh these are wonderful photos, Barb! I love seeing all the amazing colours on the trees and boy what beautiful blue skies! Looking forward to seeing your place in work too!

Dwita said...

Oh Barb... you're so thoughtful. Yes, I was still waiting for the pics until you told me in the Flickr mail. Now, I am in your blog, going from one place to another place, enjoying the life you have, with those beautiful colors produced on these days.
That Autumn Blaze Maple, sooo lovely with the red on top. I've never seen any maple trees and this is now so close to me.
The Burning Bush, wow... I love it.
I've never seen Sedum before. What lovely pink plants they are.
And, the mix of colors on the group of trees with the beautiful sky really take my breath away.
If I were there, in your neighborhood, I'm pretty sure that I won't miss any single moment of those changing colors.
Thank you so much, Barb, for sharing those lovely pics especially to me. I'm so flattered. I'm sure they are the ones that make you happy, too.
Indeed, you have the loveliest weather right now.Thanks so much.
Biiig hugs,
Dwita (in Indonesia, where trees never turn red..lol..)

Thanks for sharing these gorgeous trees and plants in their Autumn splendor...I just don't get that beauty here in the desert region that is So Cal. Our trees turn from green to shriveled brown just before the Santa Ana winds come to blown them into the neighbor's yard, lol!
bless you, sweet Barb!

AnitaRex said...

WOW what lovely photos! I love seeing the big trees full of all sorts of different colored leaves! Gorgeous! Such great inspiration! Can't wait to see your floral dept!

CinnamonSally said...

Anne said...

Thanks for sharing your great photo's Barb- love the fall here! Looking forward to seeing where you work- I bet you've got it all decorated so nicely!

Hello Barb
We here in N.Z.have the colours of Autumn, I have a Chinese Maple in my Garden, the colours are stunning, but oh what a mess when the leaves fall!
We all have days where the creative juices dry up Barb, you are not alone there. Nature has a way of cheering us up when we feel a little tired, your weather sounds wonderful.
Although it is sunny here today it continues to be cool, everyone is hanging out for Summer, we have had an awful 3 months weather-wise, including an earthquake in Christ-church.

Simone said...

Barb these are soo stunning! Love those beautiful oranges! :)

Vanessa said...

WOW! Beautiful photos, Barb!! I wish our trees would turn this colorful - we have some American Oaks in our garden, but their leaves only turn brown. Don't bother about mixing up names while commenting - I am so happy to read every little comment, and you are always leaving so many sweet comments although I am not able to visit that often!! You can call me any name you want to :) Hugs, Vanessa x

Joy said...

I love how you have shared these beautiful photos with us, love them! Hugs!

Dawn said...

Missed this yesterday Barb, I wish I lived where we got the wonderful autumn colours... we seem to go from green to bare - not this wonderful amazing colour changes. Beautiful photos.

Deirdre said...

Beautiful photos, TFS Barb.

Tiffany said...

I have never really seen such wondrous colors on trees during this time of the year, no really! The trees over here shed their leaves but it is still a very DULL brown and almost rustic color...not that defining bold orange/citrus color that you are showing here, fabulous!

ivy said...

i won't see anything remotely close to this here in SoCal!! thank you for showing me what autumn looks like!
