Glorious Color! A Walk in the Park

We have had a beautiful stretch of upper 60's and low 70's with lots of sunshine and fall color. Just when I think we aren't going to see the reds, oranges and yellows of fall, they magically appear. I spent a few hours wandering around the park taking pictures and gathering leaves. I couldn't believe how many squirrels were tromping through the leaves! There was a constant rustle on the ground and in the trees from their fall foraging.

I hope you enjoy the view!






Can you see the three squirrels on the large Oak below?

Beautiful! Michigan is such a beautiful state, my husband and I took a motorcycle trip through the upper half this past summer and loved all the trees.

Thanks for sharing such a beautiful stroll.... Did you notice how your first pic and the one I posted at "In the Garden" are so similar? Blogging has me looking up all the time now. Yep, those squirrels are busy busy and getting ready for winter now…

Michelle...I have not been here in ages. That is some field of sunflowers in your banner photo. Congratulations for winning the contest with your cherry shot...it was a beauty.

Yellow leaves are my favorite. They add a very mellow light...especially in the woods.

Thanks for visiting!

So, so pretty! We just had a wind storm and that took the last of the leaves off the trees. The bleak landscape has arrived in my neck of the woods!

Beautiful autumn images. Our foliage is done here, so it's nice to see it on your blog. I wonder if those busy, busy squirrels mean we have a cold, snowy winter ahead of us?
