What a Difference Just a Few Days Makes!
It has been an unusual autumn, to say the least, but we’ll spare you from lamenting about our weather in this post! It was less than a week ago that Luke and I were on our walk, and I thought it was odd that so many trees still had some green leaves:
Even more odd was the color of the forest carpet, with so many greens in there.
Now less than a week later, here is what it looks like on that same trail!
It’s amazing how much it changed in such a short time. While we’re entering our more drab part of the season, waiting for snow to fall, we still searched for some color that Mother Nature might share with us, and found this pretty scene:
I did finally get Samantha out to get some photos of her on our autumn decorated front step.
That was from a couple weeks ago; that poor Mum plant is not looking quite so healthy now, and our little pumpkins never did turn completely orange. We may be getting some of that white stuff soon, but we’re not really in any rush, even though the first snow is always the prettiest.
We’re happy to have this new Nature Friday blog hop (replacing the Flower Friday hop for the winter) to share some of the beauty around us even when the flowers are not in bloom!
What is Mother Nature up to in your neck of the woods?
Thank you to our friends at Living, Laughing & Barking in Our Backyard for hosting the new hop! Please visit other blogs through the links below to enjoy more of nature’s beauty.
