I had to find 'new' areas of town to get Fall photos this year. (Except for the usual 'bank' photos)
In both Spring and Fall I take the south road as I exit the bank drive thru to cruise the neighborhood. The Badford Pear trees are simply gorgeous. This year the colors ranged from yellow, orange, to red and sometimes purple.
But most of my usual areas were hard hit by an early freeze.My friend Kathy, wanted to drive through her old neighborhood which she claimed was gorgeous in the fall. She didn't need to twist my arm!
We have very few Silver Maples here. It's the pale one with the white branches.
An incredibly gorgeous Chinese Pistache took my breath away. I haven't figured out why mine doesn't look like this one.
I wish I knew what this small orange bush was. I should have just taken a stroll down the path.
A few more spots around town.
The alley behind the bank. Yes I stopped way back at the stop light. (Shot from the car) Fortunately no one was coming behind me. I'll bet you money no one else in town took this photo! And why in the world is there a pedestrian crossing sign there?
My last stop of the day was to take my friend home. Her yard is lovely!
She loves to photograph humming birds and she has the perfect plants to attract them.
Even the Autumn Joy was photo worthy.
Yes, I'm still having a hard time giving up Fall. I think maybe one more post of my Instagram pics will suffice but who knows.
I hope you are staying bundled up with this northern that's about to blow through!
