glorious sunshine

After almost two weeks of rain and clouds, the sun has finally made an appearance. Leaves blanket everything. The big oak behind the house is beautiful. This ginkgo tree was a Mother’s Day gift 10 or 12 years ago. In the woods, the elm leaves are bright yellow with spots of chocolate brown. The red […]

corn maze

While we were out east visiting our family, we took everyone to a corn maze one afternoon. It was a beautiful autumn day. Sunny, but coolish. The twins had a ball, running around, picking up walnuts, looking at pumpkins, and riding the toy tractor. Checking out the maze map. Heading into the maze. Walking a […]

autumn evening

A few pictures from our garden this evening…

looks more like fall all the time

While I mowed the yard today, I was struck by how “fall” everything felt. The low temps, the smell in the air, the crisping leaves, the autumn flowers… Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ The cabbage white butterflies were hard to get a picture of. They can’t sit still for long. The Buckeye butterflies seem to prefer the […]
