November Colors

Photobucket

On Saturday I was heading to my office and got sidetracked for some time taking pictures of these leaves. Leaves on trees are fine...but I love newly fallen leaves. And don't even get me started on Japanese maple leaves (the pointy, bright red ones). I was busy crunching the yellow and brown leaves when I realized all the red mixed in. I love the variety of color.

On my walk home a few hours later all these leaves had been raked up. I'm glad I took the pictures when I did.

I love the fall colors too! But man...it's november now, where's the snow? It's turning cold now though... and I am listening to christmas music...are you? C'mon it's after Halloween already!

Oooooooooo...I'm envious. We don't have fall colors. However, there are a lot of Ornamental Pear trees that doesn't produce fruit but the leaves turn a delicious red/purple color in the fall. (Did you know that the reason our leaves don't turn fall colors is because they don't have enough water?? That's what living in the desert gets me!)

I love these pictures Em!! Isn't it so great to just stop and enjoy beauty once in a while. It seems so hard to do sometimes. . .
