Holding on

Our autumn has been a little wonky. The leaves got a head start and it looked as if it would be a stunning year, but then It stayed very hot and dry. The leaves struggled not to fall and turn into a brown crunchy carpet.

When the rain came, it brought wind with it and many of the leaves were blown off before they had a chance to show out.

We drove to the store to pick up some groceries this morning, and the sky was stunning. We noticed several crimson maples and Bradford pear trees.

Then on our walk after lunch today, I came up several small oak trees that had lingered and decided to put on their own show. I was glad they held on.


  1. Yeah, it makes you sorta proud of them. I know folks like that. YOu say a lot in a few words, I keep trying. Always a pleasant visit here at life !0!. ;-)

  2. That photograph really captures the season. Take care and happy weekend.

  3. Those leaves that managed to stay on in spite of the wind did put on quite a beautiful display. I noticed the sky was awesome today, too. Isn't it wonderful to marvel in the "little" things....when in fact they are the "big" things. God's majesty is everywhere.
    Lovely blog always.

  4. That picture is one to hang on to. I miss the colors here. Bare trees all around.

  5. Great shot of those tenacious beautiful leaves.
    Like my little granddaughter used to say; Our trees are bare naked.
    Have a great day.

  7. That is one of the things I like most about this time of year. You come upon these little surprises and feel good the rest of the day.

  8. I have no complaints about Fall this year. It was beautiful and pleasant temps were nice too! I miss the pretty leaves so thanks for the lovely pic!

  9. I love the oak leaves in November. I took a walk today at our local nature preserve and noticed that the oak leaves are about all that's left.
    Very nice color in the leaves of the oak you photographed.
