Weekend Snapshot: Number 9
I went outside this weekend to take photographs of the autumn colors but was sidetracked by the surprise shots. I did take some of the trees too but the first surprise I'm going to include is my Halloween/Autumn display, on my front porch, which was discovered by the wildlife. For last week's WS I posted the planned display. Below is the Indian corn after the squirrels or maybe birds had a feast. I kind of liked the way the food was eaten by those in need.The next shot was a planned one. I love this time of year when some of the leaves have changed and some haven't yet, providing a nice mix of colors.
The other surprise was when I was in my garden checking on my lettuce and I caught some color out of the corner of my eye. I thought it might be a volunteer maple sapling which was changing colors as I've had quite a few of those but no, my roses are having a last hurray before winter.
I don't live in a rose covered cottage but part of the year I have a rose covered storage building, a fact I'm sure I've mentioned a time or two or 50 on my blog. It's not covered at the moment but there are quite a few roses blooming that I almost missed noticing. Imagine that.
Back to the trees, some of them are in full color. The oaks have only barely started to change here but the dogwoods and maple trees almost knock me out with their vibrant shades of color.
One last weekend snapshot and this one is my gerber daisies which have managed one last moment of bloom before winter. I have several more small buds which may not be fast enough but I was glad I spotted this one in my garden.This has turned into a half dozen weekend snapshots but too much going on outside for me to narrow it down.
Monday is the official weekend snapshot day but as usual I'm posting mine a day early. Weekend Snapshot
