Fall has arrived

I love the way God's creation changes colors when summer turns to fall. I took a few pictures from around our yard to share. I also love the apples from our apple trees. They are young trees so there aren't very many but I can't imagine what these trees are going to produce in years to come.

All summer this was just a green "blob" in my flower bed and now there are these beautiful rust colored flowers! I love them!!!

This fence line was green all summer...no flowers just green. Now that fall is here it is absolutely beautiful! I love the "red" leaves that cover the fence. The bummer part is that the leaves are all going to fall off and then we have to look at the yucky chain link fence that belongs to the neighbors all winter and spring. Oh well, it keeps their dogs in their yard. The tree in the back is a gravenstein tree and only had a couple of apples this year. The tree in front is a Sparten and will be ready to pick in about a week. These are good little apples!!

That reminds me that I need to get outside and plant my mum! Do you think I'll get to stay in this house long enough to see it get big and beautiful :-)?
