You Capture - Autumn

Autumn to me is looking out my front window and seeing this beautiful maple tree in my neighbor's front yard. I took these photos Monday afternoon. Now most of this tree's leaves are on the ground.
Leaves of all sizes...


The flowers on my hydrangea bush are changing colors (seems like yesterday they were blooming)...

And watching the ghosts dance on my tree in the front yard.


My HUGE maple tree in my backyard has not changed colors yet. It does within the first couple weeks of November. Then there are TONS of leaves.


Photobucket
Go on over to I Should Be Folding Laundry to see other You Capture's for this week.

We missed the peak down here. I got some great photos of the kids the other day. Get ready for the yucky snow! Love the photos you took.

What a beautiful sight out your front window. :) It's amazing how quickly the leaves change and then fall isn't it?

Love the composition in photo #2.

Lovely!

Our huge oak in our backyard hasn't changed yet, and now I'm wondering if I'll just have a ton of leaves to rake - and no color! Great, great photos. I love the ghosts. :)

I think the last one captures the feeling of fall really, Really well. It's lovely - it makes me really happy too. :)

That is beautiful. My sister in law and I were just talking about the season last weekend. We wish we lived somewhere we can actually see the seasons change. Your pictures are beautiful!

Beautiful hydrangea! One of the best flowers of fall, I think. =)

Sadly for us we only had beautiful trees for a couple days then woosh gone with the wind...! These are beautiful wish I could have that again... at least for awhile longer!

Lovely fall photos! You are lucky to have such a beautiful view out your window. Since I live on the 10th floor I have to look down to see the tops of the trees. I guess I shouldn't complain since I'm lucky to any trees at all living in NYC. ha

Oh what a beautiful blog you have. I so enjoyed your sharing of the Fall leaves and the little whisps of ghosts blowing in your tree. Absolutely beautiful.

I live in Phoenix so we really don't see much sign of Fall. Today is a little cooler, I guess we are getting some of the cool air from the Colorado snow. I miss the Fall season. The leaves you shared are beautiful, and lovingly touched by God's hands. Thank you so much for sharing with me today.

I have signed up to follow your blog. It is so beautiful and happy here. I will be back. Thanks again for sharing. Please stop by and say hi. I would love for you to sign up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs, Sherry

We are still waiting for fall down here. But we saw some beautiful colors in NY and Canada when we were there last weekend. Of course, the camera was packed in the trunk. Bah! :)
