Beautiful Autumn

Sharing a little fall I've been enjoying lately before
I begin decorating for the holidays. I can hardly believe 
that Thanksgiving is next week and the family will all be here
enjoying each other's company and over-indulging on pies😆 

 gathered-garden gifts

rose hips,oak leaves, and crabapples

I love the red leaf roses and I have them everywhere.
I enjoy them most when Fall comes to the garden.
Their hips turn from an auburn color to a bright red when the weather 
turns cooler and then turn more orange as their 
leaves turn from red to green to yellow, and then to orange.

The Limelight hydrangeas as they blush with pink in the cooler weather

Brandywine crabapple

Below is the Golden Raindrops crabapple fruit still hanging on the tree.
It's little apples are usually the first eaten by the birds that come in flocks
in late October, but for some reason, when they flew into the garden
they devoured the snowdrift crabapple fruit that grows right next to it instead and
left it for another flock of birds sure to come later. 

Snowdrift crabapples turn from green to orange in the fall
before it's foliage turns a pretty autumn gold

I have shared a little more Fall color on the garden blog too.

I wish everyone a lovely Thanksgiving holiday!!!
sending hugs to you all!
