Busy Days

Hi everyone! We were out of town for a few days. It was really a gorgeous weekend and beginning to the week. The colors in the trees are really starting to 'pop' in certain areas. It was strange, though~we'd drive for a while and see only green, then all of a sudden it was beautiful multi-colors again. The Sweetgums were especially pretty.

The pictures were taken at a cemetery in the Ozarks that we visit every year about this time. It is planted mostly in Maples and is usually gorgeous. I think we missed it's 'peak' by a few days, as some of the trees were starting to lose their leaves. It is always hard to time our visit just right.

Hope you've had a good beginning to your week. It was cold here--50s all day today. We'll probably warm up again in a day or two.



  1. Mary, what gorgeous pics! Love the colors.... Why is it that all the Sweet Gum trees produce such beautiful colors, except for the ones we have in our yard? This is the 3rd place we've lived at & all 3 places had the Sweet Gums that did NOT turn pretty? boo hoo Not fair! And don't you wish the fall colors would last a bit longer? At least for 2 weeks I'd say. :)

  2. Your photos are so beautiful dear Rosemary. I so love the Fall and each week brings more trees into color.

    Have a sweet Wednesday.

  3. Wasn't last weekend just perfect! Back to being cold but only for a few days, another warm weekend ordered! Our color is at it's peak too, so pretty, it always leaves me amazed each year! Lovely photos, love those maples!

  4. It's nice to have you back. Those trees are beautiful "peek" or no...

    Have a great day!

  5. Rose Mary, there is a cemetery in my old hometown (Lebanon), that has lots of Maple trees. Always beautiful during autumn.

    Gorgeous photos, the one of the cemetery reminds me of the one in Lebanon!


  6. Thanks for the absolutely beautiful pictures. We don't have those colors here and I miss them!

  7. Poppin' in to say hello! Blessings to you and yours!

  8. WOW! That is so beautiful. We just don't get the changing of the seasons like that here in CA. Enjoy all the beautiful fall colors.

  9. Miss you, have a good time. The trees are really very beautiful. Have a great week. connie from Texas
