Autumn Fire

Like I mentioned before, autumn is not my favorite season. But I have to admit that I love the fall foliage since orange, gold and yellow are probably my favorite colors. Red is not a favorite color but I have to share these photos of the Burning Bushes that are currently ablaze in my front yard. The above photo was taken one week ago. The color wasn't as intense as it is now.

Here's a photo of one of the bushes next to the porch. I took this one yesterday.

And here's a photo of the three BB's growing next to the sidewalk. I planted these shrubs about 15 years ago. I don't recall them ever being this beautiful.

This is my dog, Bijou. She wanted to pose next to the pretty fall leaves. If you bigify the photo, you can just make out my other dog, Banjo, looking out the window.

Summer Is Over

I hate that the warm weather and long days have come to an end. I am not a cold weather person and the older I get, the less I like winter. I mean I really HATE winter. The cold I can kinda deal with, but I detest the short days and long dreary nights. And the snow and ice, just makes it all more unbearable!

A mob of butterflies, bees and wasps have been visiting this goldenrod for the past month, working to store up food for the winter. I have been expecting the dogs to get stung any day now.
