Not your normal autumn colors

This is a bush over on the side of the house that is developing all these amazing shades of pinks in the leaves….

Final Home Game

Tonight was Jacob’s final home game. It’s been a long frustrating season, but mom and dad have made it to most of the games. At the ┬áhome games, they greet him after the game down at the bottom of the bleachers. He loves coming over and chatting with them…

Capturing Autumn???

…not so much! LOL!

Okay, we went out to the lilypad park today (where I went the first day of our challenge and took all the photos of the butterflies…which are still there!!) I took 90 photos and I would guess that at least 30 of them are what I would consider good. Unfortunately all the ones that really include any autumn color are in the other 60 not-so-great photos. The 30 are all pretty spring-y looking (again!?!)

I uploaded 9 others onto Facebook besides these 2 so go look at those for today’s really good photos.

This first one is not that fantastic of a photo…pretty, but it does have a bit of autumn color in the background.

BUT the reason that I was taking photos of these flowers is because the bees were working them big time and coming out covered in pollen…so cool! There is another pollen-covered bee in the Facebook album too.

Snack time for the Doves

I made the comment on Dave’s gorgeous photo for today and then looked outside to see all our neighborhood doves gathered across the street for their afternoon snack…

Autumn comes before winter…

…and holly bushes have red berries in the winter. SO since my holly berries have just started to appear, it MUST be Autumn.
