backyard magic

The leaves are starting to turn here in Tennessee. It's funny. You go to bed one night with green leaves on the trees and when you wake up, it appears that someone has gone wild with red, orange, and yellow paint buckets!


It is just magical, Truly magical.


These photos were taken in my own backyard. I mentioned to hubby that we should go for a ride in the country, but there wasn't time. Meanwhile, I walked out the backdoor with my camera and had a field day. Who would have thought!


"Change is a measure of time and,
in the autumn,
time seems speeded up.
What was is not and never again will be;
what is is change."
~Edwin Way Teale

I'm linking to Mary's Mosaic Monday and Susan's Outdoor Wednesday.

I have so much to learn. :)

What a beautiful mosaic. I was just browsing your blog, and your photography is spectacular. I love the one with the leaf floating on top of the lake. Gorgeous. We have had the trees turning colors for a while now in Massachusetts. They are starting to blow away today with gusty winds and rain. I wish I could have this season all year round.
