Autumns Blazing color




   Autumn is still officially here, 
but yesterday we saw our first snowfall of the season... Booo!
Since I was so depressed over the pretty falling flakes that stuck to the ground,
 I sure did not feel like snapping any photos.
I decided to share some earlier blazing glory (and subsequent messes) of autumn.


 some of the first of falls colors (maple trees)
please feel free to click on any photos to enlarge
but please ask if you would like to share or have a better copy, thank you


one of the many ugly dark stormy skies we have had this autumn
it does make the colorful leaves stand out, though


my infamous 'spooky tree' ( to read the story behind the spooky tree just click on the words) covered an many colors of wild grapevine (red), hops (just turning from green to yellow and brown, clematis (almost dried up) 
and still very green trumpet vine,
 all in front of large golden maples



the nasty brown mess of the many trees, mostly maple leaves, littering the ground behind (in the heavy trees where we tend to blow them if the wind doesn't do the job for us) some very hungry gold finches now in their drab winter colors



the start of yucky brown leaves and pine needles covering our steep driveway waiting for someone to clean them up. any takers??
  


This concludes this weeks autumn blaze and fall to a dying dried mess before being covered in snow, thus making clean up even messier, sighhhh.


  Have you had any snow flakes or fallen
stuck to a mess yet this season?

  1. I don't live in snow country and I don't want to either. It's beautiful for about five minutes and then it's tons of work. I do love the colors of fall though. Too bad the snow shows up so rapidly.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. ♥♥♥

  6. We had snowflakes here today, too, but it was mostly rain. I fear the wind is knocking down quite a few of the pretty leaves. Your autumn captures are awesome.

  10. Such pretty colors! We got hit hard with leaves last week. I've been busy trying to turn them all into mulch for my bushes and trees.

  11. The first shot of the maples is very beautiful. We had very few red leaves this year. And no snow yet, though a bit north of here they did get some.

  12. Sorry to hear of your harsh realities. Sending cheers your way :) My memories of snow are all mostly magical. The autumn trees are arrayed in beautiful colors. Their fallen leaves probably provide much needed mulch and natural nutrition for the coming spring foliage. Thank you mother nature.

  13. Hope you get well soon!
    Love your autumn captures, more because it is always monochrome here in Bangalore.

    About the statue and its reflection in my post, the pool was shallow, you can see some coins in the pool. The statue was placed on the floor of the pool I guess.
