The mums across the front porch. Another shade of purple. They are full of bees at this time of year.
Our little Autumn Blaze maple tree. It is putting on a good show. The leaves are starting to come down today. I hate to think of winter.
The American Cranberry with the sun shining on it. This picture was taken last year...it wasn't as vibrant this year. It just goes to show you...the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Our neighborhood has been pretty....not as pretty as past years, but we should be thankful for what we have. Fall color is a gift from God I think. It's a reward for all the hard work we gardeners did all summer long. When the color is over...it will be time to put the garden to rest...and we will rest too.
