The thing that I like least about blogging is the writing part. Sometimes I just do not have anything particularly interesting to say.
The thing that I love about blogging is the pictures. I love to take pictures. I love to see other people’s pictures. And I love to share my pictures.
So, that’s exactly what I am going to do in this post – just share a few of my pictures. As I looked at the latest collection of my shots, I noticed a lot featuring various shades of red. Below are just a few.
Our prairie-fire crabapple tree outside the kitchen window is full of red fruit and reddish leaves.
A closer-up view of the fruit. And notice the red granary is in the background.
My Autumn Joy Sedum plants have turned a very dark pinkish-red. Even after several hard frosts, they are still looking good.
Some leaves from one of our many Autumn Blaze Maple trees around here. While many other trees have shed their leaves, these are hanging on to theirs for now.
While walking through the woods behind the house to mark small maple trees for transplanting next spring, I came across this red fence post. It is a remnant from the previous owners who once had cattle in the woods around the house.
Our singular Amur Maple tree is showing off some nice shades of red.
And one of my favorite sites around here…our red barn.
A view of two of the brilliant-colored Autumn Blaze Maples.
And last, but not least, here come the guys across the field on our Razor – Jesse on the left and our youngest behind the wheel. Ok, this picture does not really fit into my “red” theme, but I like it anyhow. And there are some red trees in the background. 🙂
We have spent today starting our preparations for winter. Jesse started his first round of the leaf battle and I stayed inside to remove screens and wash the windows. I want to make sure I have clear and unobstructed views when the snow starts to fall. 😦
