It IS a lovely one but it will take your time!!
And trust me!
I am really glad that Felisol from the far side of the sea asked me to check it out!
For you see! I have come to love it and the people that I have met because of it!
Some old friends like Felisol, Mr. Jim, Sue Sioux, and Donna and Amrita, and Mrs. Mac.
And some new friends like The Teach, herself, Greyscale,Gattina, Raven, Askew, Gayle, Dianne, and "Just Me"!
On our way back to the little red car, we met the mommy of the little black dog with the white slippers.
This bright Monday morning, Bernie and I decided to go to another local store, NOT to shop but to take some pictures.
It just seems that the prettiest autumn trees are hanging around the shopping centres!
Every Fall we visit one special tree that never fails to bring us delight
I think it is the reddest tree that we have ever seen!
On our way from the little red car, we stopped to talk to a lad who has been our paper boy for at least seven years.
He was dog-sitting for lady who had to to into the store.
I noticed the bright red trim on his grey jacket and told him, "Stand right there Paper Boy, and you too Mr. Shirkie!
And then I snapped this first picture for the Teach and her Ruby Tuesday
The little black doggie with his white slippers made a nice touch to the photo.
"Well there she is Bernie! Our friend for years, the red tree.
Too bad we don't know what her name is, eh?"
I took the first picture from a little distance.
Bernie said that it would be nice to photograph the tree as we got closer and closer to its beauty.
So this first picture had a nice green trim around it.
A few steps further and the little leaves were like miniature hand waves rippling on a sunny day,
Beckoning us to come closer,
And yet closer,
Right into its heart where among the crimson branches we saw the reddish orange berries!
Food fit for the royalist of the birds!
Here I stand feeling very privileged beside the gorgeous tree! And here stands Bernie, dressed in blue, making a nice contrast.
I think that the lack of a smile on Bernardo's face is because of the fact that he knows that in two short hours, he must leave this pretty sight and the sunshiny day and go into work!
She told us that her doggie's name is Nikki!
We took this last picture because not only were they a cute couple, but I just adore red brick wherever it be: on a building, on a fireplace or on a floor!
