Golds and purples




Remember my spooky tree?
  (this link takes you to the beginning of the tale of how this tree became named the "spooky tree" for more posts see the left side bar under categories/tags spooky tree)

  It is still upright and has a new crop of vines growing on it this year, all changing colors and getting ready to come falling down (more of a pictorial story later).

Enjoying the last few days ( I sadly fear) of Indian summer I was able to catch this shot standing beneath old spooky....


click to enlarge,
please ask for written permission for a copy, thanks

Many of the leaves of gold, red, purple and all of autumns hues are all but fallen in the winds of fall. Raked and blown into piles, crushed and burned by handy hubby, who then comes inside smelling of smoked sausage after a hard day of yard work.

Are there any of the beautiful colors of golds,
  reds and purples in your area?
Tell me what part of the world your season is changing into,
  autumn or spring eye candy.





  Until next time ...

  4. Beautiful golds go so well with the purple. It's begun raining here but the temperature is balmy and so of the nicest weather we have had in months as the entire summer was cold and foggy.

  5. I'm in Bombay, India which doesn't have much greenery .. and the weather is SO HOT right now (we've just finished with the monsoons - 3 months of mad rain!)

    I do have some huge trees in my building compound - but they are just green .. no fun colours for me :(

  12. I love fall. The leaves are just starting to turn here in Ohio, but today it is raining, and that's always bad news for the colorful leaves.

  14. We don't get much of an autumn in the central valley of California, but autumn it is. Lovely colors in your neck of the woods.

    Have a terrific WW. :)

  16. It looks like a giant tree man with arms!

  17. That tree looks as if it's ready to run away!

    All the leaves still haven't changed here yet. After about 5 days of great weather, we're into rain now for the next few days, so a lot of the leaves may end up off the trees.

  25. It's amazing the way all those vines have grown up there the way they have.

  26. Wow I like your Spooky Tree Faythe :) The colours are so rich too, which only adds to the wonderful imagery.

    Here in the UK it is summer and rather nice for a change, yesterday I was busy staining my hut and fences in a rich dark oak ready for the end of the warm weather, Autumn comes around rather quickly here and the neighbours over-hanging trees litter my back garden with leaves :( Grrrr

    This is a lovely posting Faythe and I have many to browse through as I venture through your world of blogging :) I am enjoying it here though so I will be back often :)

    Best pop the kettle on, and so I can make us a nice cup of tea :)
