Autumn Brilliance

We're beginning to feel a little nip in the air and the leaves are just now beginning to fall. While the maples are still pretty green, we are having a few glorious red leaves falling off. I found this one on the stoop this morning and had to bring it in.

Is this not the prettiest shade of red ever? I tucked it into my indoor wreath where I can enjoy it each time I walk by.

I've been bringing in some plants as it gets chillier in the evenings. I moved the orchard above my computer and hope it will bloom for me this year. Don't know if I like it here or not. We're supposed to get a little rain which is well needed. I'm hoping it will help the leaves change colors rather than just falling off altogether without a show. I love the rain and I'm loving this sweater weather. Finally, it's beginning to feel like autumn!

The leaves are getting prettier now. Hope all this wet rain to make them all fall off today.

That is one beautiful Maple leaf. Such a gorgeous color of red. We see very little change in the trees here in the fall. In fact I will soon be posting the ONE tree I could find that looked like fall within a mile radius of my house!!

I love finding red leaves in the fall too. They are sto striking.
