There are quite a few things that I complain about when it comes to life in Ohio. Just ask Dane…he’s a saint for listening. But, one of the perks of living in a region that gets all four of the year’s seasons is the beauty of autumn leaves. Photographs don’t seem to capture the complexity of all the colors, but I still love to take them. All of these photos were taken in my very own backyard.
I’m not sure if this plant is a tree or a bush. Hey, I never said I was a botanist! Either way, I love it. I noticed it last year when it turned this vibrant red color and even during the winter it has some awesome red berries. It’s actually planted in our neighbors’ yard and hangs over our fence. For once, I’m not complaining. 😉
This is another of our neighbors’ trees and I loved how the light was shining through the branches.
But, I loved all the colors while they lasted! I’m hoping we can hold on to the warmer temperatures for a little while longer.
Do you still have fall colors where you live? Or do you live in lovely southern Californ-I-A where you are forced to look at palm trees all year round? 😉
