Autumn Splendor


As the Autumn color show begins ........

One can't help but wonder what will be the 'winning' photo of the season.  So many rich colors to choose from in the collection of photos this time of year.  I wish I could post them all.


















I love how the red leaves dance above the bird bath garden as the Willow watches in the background.


It took the day of Autumn for me to reconized the true meaning of the 'Endless Summer' Hydrangea.  This garden treasure just keeps on giving brilliant colored blooms. 


It just won't be our blog if we didn't share a kitten or two!
 

This Autumn Wish Image above goes to my friends over at Fertilize Friday.  It is always a pleasure to view others splendid blooms at the end of the week so please stop over and see what they have shared.   Until next entry please get out and enjoy the Autumn Splendor!

So pretty! I'm 'starting' to accept that autumn is really here! I've been hesitant to get my feet wet, so to speak--preferring to keep myself in the summer frame of mind! Your photos show the beauty of autumn, and help me get focused on the here & now! I love the birdbath scene with the red leaves above it & the willow in the background! Your personification of the willow--as if he were watching the whole thing taking place--is a neat thought;-)

Like you, I have been so much enjoying the start of the fall color season. We just returned from vacation, so it's all like a great surprise to come home to! Arizona was gorgeous, but I sure missed the greens of Ohio.
