this week the little red car sped us along the highways and the byways to search for some fall trees...but alas...
autumn has not been as pretty here in the Niagara region...not as nice as last year because the leaves are falling before they have even put their reds and goldens on!..
a dry summer has made them fragile and winds and rain have been stripping the green leaves off and throwing and swirling them all over the place!
there are a few golden flowers...but just look at that half dressed tree!
these are not even THINKING about changing colour!
at least there is one in the crowd here who is dressed in red finery.
god has thrown in many bouquets of purple and yellow flowers.
good thing because as you can see these green trees are just day dreaming and too lazy to put on their fine clothing!
green green leaves and a half dressed tree!
the little red car even tried to see if niagara falls offered us anything...
but except for a few ruby sumac bushes which have been very pretty this year, we found nothing better than what we have in our own front city yard
and so home we returned...
to photograph our beautiful white birch tree...it was absolutely stunning wrapped in its golden cloak.
the little red car wanted a couple of pictures of bernie and me so that there would be a touch of red at least this ruby post tuesday.
and that is when we spotted our neighbours tiny little red maple leaf and so we snapped this picture.
just look at this smarty pants with the splash of golden leaves all over its fire engine red roof and hood!
our lawn has a fine golden carpet and here you can see that our burning bush has finally decided to turn red...it is about two weeks behind!
now at the end of the day here is a really beautiful moon,
it took pity on us and asked the sunset to give us a little smudge of pink for ruby tuesday and so i have put this picture in!
happy ruby tuesday everybody!....god bless you all...love terry
