|So many different colors here (10/27/15)|
I'll also show you some FLOWER surprises in addition to the pretty Fall Leaves/Colors.. We have had a warm Fall, with only one/two nights with temperatures in the 30's ---so our Roses and Daylilies and Irises have really enjoyed blooming this month and during September. I love having RE-BLOOMING flowers ---and it's so special to see them bloom during these couple of months... Of course, our fantastic ROSES will bloom until frost ---so they just continue putting on a show for us also.
We took a trip to West Virginia the week of October 19 ---so we missed the 'actual' BEST week for colors here in our area (the colors here were actually prettier than what we saw most of the time in West VA). BUT---we still saw beauty in so many places off and on all month... Hope you enjoy today's COLORS. Be sure to click on them for enlargements.
|BURNING BUSH near our home--10/24/15; We have LOTS of these in our area and the reds are so pretty this time of year.|

|In trying to capture the colors on our trees, I also managed to get the flag AND an ABOUT FACE ROSE in full bloom. (10/26/15)|
|Beautiful Fall Colors near our home (10/28/15)|
|WALTZ ACROSS TEXAS IRIS (10/26/15) ---I love this yellow and white color in this one. The purple and yellow ones behind this one are Blatant Irises.|

Have a fabulous week/month... Thanksgiving is always one of my favorite seasons --and I like to enjoy it before even thinking about Christmas... But --I love Christmas also, so we have a couple of wonderful months ahead of us... ENJOY LIFE to its fullest.
