When folks heard about our trip to the east, nearly everyone had some comment about
"the colors" and how lovely it is back there this time of year.....
Well, it was pretty, not spectacular by any means.
They did have a droughty summer and it didn't appear that "the colors" were going to shape up and be outstanding this year.
But look at what we came home to!
The scarlet oak, the virginia creeper, the mountain maple, and since we haven't had a killing frost
even yet (miraculous!) there are still squash blossoms and sunflowers!
I picked bouquets for the house this weekend!
