More pretty Fall color - The Hickory Nut tree that hangs over my courtyard. Picture taken Saturday, and those leaves are now falling - guess what I need to do ?!?!?! :-)

I LOVE looking at the variety of colours of the leaves in Fall. That is a great idea to show comparisons too.
Happy November!
Best wishes, NM.

Oh my that hickory nut tree is so beautiful -- what fabulous color. I do enjoy the wild colors of fall -- only problem is how quickly they turn to winter's bare branches!

Glenda, these are some really nifty shots. The hickory might be trouble, but it's so lovely. I enjoyed seeing the progression of changes. And that horse is fun to see!

Happy OW...

Wow that is a blue sky against the orange leaves. Looks so striking! Hope you have a great week and Happy Outdoor Wednesday : )

Sue said...

Isn't fall just the best season? I really like how you chronicled the leaves both in the spring and in the fall.
We rake and blow the leaves constantly. We back up to a woods, in addition to having a wooded lot. They are everywhere! LOL The township where we lives does leaf collections on a timely basis, so we set the ones from the front yard out in the curb area. The back leaves get raked into the woods.
Thanks for visiting again today. I left a note.

Hi,
What a great idea to post pictures of the tree in Spring and again in the Fall! I'm liking that blue horse also...is there a reason for the special design and coloring or just the artist's choice?

Hello again - thanks for your kind comments. Pomona sent me some info about hyperflexibility which I've found really helpful.Do you find that doctors are well aware of it in the States? She said there was a lot of ignorance in the UK.

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

wonderful photos, sweet friend! Have a great weekend, Glenda!

Bill said...

Hi Glenda,
Beautiful post! I've been to G-PAC a few times, but it was pre-horse. I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in the area.

Do you have to wear a hard hat when you walk under the hickory tree? They're beautiful, but what a mess they make!

Thank you for stopping by today. I always appreciate your nice comments. Have a great rest of the week!

Bill

I love your pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Beautiful photos!!! We don't get a lot of "fall" here in southern California. Not many of our trees, change colors. The ones that do are mostly yellow. And the leaves don't fall off till about Christmas time. So I really enjoy getting to see "fall" from around the states. And thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.
