    I had to stop while heading for home yesterday and take these pictures of the beautiful fall colors :D :D the sun popped out for a few minutes and the colors of the trees and bushes were so awesome!!! 8) 8) It has finally been cold enough to make the leaves change colors and start dropping.

    We took a Date Weekend and drove up the Cedar City mountains to Duck & Brain Head, so pretty all the
    fall colors.

    That is a beautiful picture craftilady!!! It reminds me of the eastern part or Oregon :D :D :D

    I am not sure why we are getting so many vibrant red and oranges this year...hopefully it quits raining and the sun will come out so I can take some more pictures

    I saw some color in norhter Minnesota a couple weeks ago, but we haven't had much color here in St. Louis. The trees are dropping leaves, but it is pretty dull so far.

    Beautiful!!! Autumn is my second favourite season. Spring is my first!!! Sadly, Spring is almost over here... it starts officially Sept but the gardens are blooming in August. Media commentators this year joked we should call August Sprinter. And now you can already feel Summer rolling in! The gardens are starting to show signs of stress from the hot sun!
