Photo of the Day: Bright Fall Leaves

It feels more like winter than fall in the Midwest, and just about all of the leaves have fallen from the trees. My husband and I are braving the frigid weather to rake our leaves before snowfall, in an attempt to help our new grass grow. Here are some brilliant red leaves from before they all fell.

Photo of the Day: Yellow and Orange

You will probably see quite a few fall photos on this blog over the next couple of months. It’s my favorite time of year, and I have a house now, which means room to decorate! I’m even making a few of my own pieces this year. (Just call me Martha.) This was one of the centerpieces at my bridal shower 4 years ago. I love that I’ve been able to re-use it! (We definitely picked a good season to get married.)

Days 278-279: Autumn at its Best

I’ve spent a lot of time admiring the changing leaves and beautiful fall colors lately. And since the trees are almost to their peak already, you may see even more of these photos from me in the next few days.

Bright orange trees are my favorite; this one is right across the street from where I live.
These gorgeous trees are changing rapidly at Riss Lake in Parkville, Mo.
