Nature's Bling

Needing to catch up 
on things around here 
this weekend,
I didn't get out much.

So the other evening,
I decided to walk around my yard.
I was thrilled with what I found.







I am always transported 
to a place of total freedom
when viewing the fall colors
against the crisp, blue autumn sky.








I didn't think it could get any better...











but it did...


























and better still.








No one does it better than Mother Nature.

Wow, how gorgeous. I wish we could have some of those Fall colors here in Florida. We do get lots of rain and humidity, but nothing beautiful like that.
