Fall peaked in Atlanta this past weekend and it was truly spectacular! Everywhere we drove the trees were in full color! Reds, yellows and greens bursting in all their glory. It has been a few years since I have seen such abundance of colors. Perhaps it was the extra rainy summer we had, or maybe Mother Nature just decided to give us a show. For whatever reason, I couldn’t resist stepping out into our backyard and snapping a few photos of the bicycle and birdbaths before the leaves were blown away.
As you can probably tell by the last photo, we have a couple more weeks of leaves falling so I’m hoping to snap a few more photos before they all disappear. How are the Fall colors in your part of the world? I’d love to see your colors!
The Fall colors finally popped this week in Atlanta, but I’m afraid they will be short lived with more wind and rain on the way, tonight. The bird baths are full of both leaves and rain water and the garden (still needing some TLC) is totally covered as well. But, as the leaves have turned and dropped, Mother Nature has given me plenty of photo ops!
I haven’t used my Macro lens in a while so I thought today would be a good day to get outside and take some practice shots. So, I slid my feet into my warm, fuzzy slippers and headed outdoors.
Ugh, this bird bath is a total mess. But, don’t the leaves, water and the color of the birdbath compliment each other?
This little bird bath sits on the ground atop a few bricks…….we like to make sure the “critters” have water, too! And, because it’s on the ground I had to get a little creative to take these pictures…..thank goodness for the display view button!
The Fall colors also gave me a good backdrop for my (still) blooming knock-out roses.
Here’s a snapshot of my garden floor……like I said, it is totally covered with leaves!
Fingers crossed we’ll have a few more days of the Fall colors……..I don’t think I’m quite ready for the snow!
