The Trees are Finally Turning

Well it seems like it took a while, but the trees are finally getting really colorful here.  I went out on Saturday and took some photos around the yard.  Unfortunately several of them didn't turn out very good once I uploaded them to the computer.  I'll have to try again when the weather clears.  It's really cloudy and rainy here today, but the weather on Saturday was gorgeous.  Just look at this sky!

This is our cottonwood tree.  There aren't many leaves left now after the rain.  The maples in the fence row are changing, too.  I took this picture earlier last week.

The color doesn't show up very well in the photo, but it's really a pretty gold color.  Our neighbors have a couple that are a fabulous bright orange.  Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to go down in the woods and get some good photos.

Some years ago my mom found a Solomon's Seal plant down in our woods.  She transplanted it to the yard and now it has formed a colony.  They turn a lovely golden yellow in the fall and have fruits that kind of look like blueberries hanging along the stem.

While I was out in the yard looking around I spied this little cedar tree struggling to find room under one of the maple trees.  I'll have to dig it up and move it to its own area so it will have plenty of room.

I just have one more photo to show.  I have another Mori outfit to share.  I'll make another post later this week to tell you about my Mori haul.

I'll see you all later!  Have a great week!
