September 22

You couldn’t tell by looking at me, but I am a nature girl. Meaning, I love looking at nature~~sans bugs~~not living out in it, or camping in it, or even nature hiking in it. Why? Because it is dirty!

Aaanyway…I am trying to document how fast the leaves are changing in this area. I love maple trees for 2 reasons…….they are the best shade trees, and they are the most beautiful in the autumn.

Remember this from 9/13?

This was yesterday.

Here is my view from the back deck this morning. Look at the sunrise. Aaahhhh! Sometimes I feel like God created this beauty just for me.

Thank you God for your handiwork.

What is your favorite tree?

  1. I like so many trees, CC, but I’m right there with you about the Maple tree….beautiful & useful, all the time! I love Oak trees. If my husband were a tree, he’d be an Oak…solid, strong, & perseverant. I like Bradford Pears, too…beautiful in the spring and fall, but not real useful….they are weak, so you don’t want them close to your house. I’m also quite fond of Blue Spruce and I love the scraggly kind of Cedar trees in the distance. I love my Crabapple tree in the front yard because it welcomes spring in a beautiful shade of pink.

    Nice pictures. We have no such fall color here, but the trees have faded in their green brilliance (the summer drought wasn’t kind to our trees).

  2. I don’t know that I have a favorite tree. I’ve never really given it much thought.

    Every year I think about taking pictures of the changing leaves around us and every year I forget to take a camera with me places to document the change. Thanks for doing it for me.

  3. I love maple also for their shade and pretty colors, but I do love a weeping willow. We had one in our front yard when we were kids. We had many a picnic under that tree. Remember Willie?

  4. The trees in your neighborhood look about the same degree of color as those in my own. I agree that maples turn such beautiful colors in the fall. There are a lot of oak trees around my home and they are fairly disappointing compared to the maples. Nothing beats those old sumacs for red, though.

  5. Favorite tree? Might as well ask what my favorite song or book is! Too many to choose from!

    Our neighbors have this tree in their front yard that produces BRIGHT yellow flowers once per year. I drive out of my way to go look at it. I have no idea what it is, either.
