    I love fall and love taking pictures. Here are a couple of leaves in the woods behind my house. I am traveling across the PA turnpike on Sun to Lancaster so I hope to get to take many more pictures.

    This is the probably the only reason why I wish I lived up north. I miss watching the leaves turn into those beautiful colors. Florida doesn't change. Everything is always green. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

    I think you should use the first picture as a pattern for a new quilt. Love the colors.

    Here in eastern Tennessee we normally have a beautiful showing of Autumn but we don't hold out much hope for pretty colors this year. We've had little to no rain in months. But a few trees are turning now so we may have a little color. I love all the pictures above. Beautiful!

    I really envy all of you who have these vivid autumn colours on your doorstep. Several years ago my DH and I went to Ontario and New Brunswick in October and the leaves were spectacular.
    We have a lot of ugly Norwegian maples around our city and all the leaves do is turn brown and dry out. Wish we had sugar maples, birch, etc.. :cry:

    It really was stunning, so vibrant and I am sure the photo my husband took on his (much more expensive and full of bells and whistles) camera will be even more stunning. We just could not stop looking at the tree and I am sure the owners though we were stalkers! lol

    that's so nice, i miss the changing colors too, but not the bad weather that comes after the changing, the memories are the best . thank-you for putting them on here.

    Here in Bakersfield, CA we only have a very few trees that change. I'll take a picture later and put it up..we have a good view down our street of several of the trees that have started to change. Liquid Amber, Maple, and another one with tiny leaves that I don't know the name of, but goes to gold. Real pretty. It's still warm here...80 deg last week.
