Glorious fall color - but it's all gone this week!
Take a look at how beautiful my backyard arbor was just one week ago. Those rich, golden colors were so perfect.
I did some family photos out there last Sunday, and I'm glad we jumped on the opportunity to do them that day, because within a few days the wind kicked up and all the leaves were gone. Even on the low currant bushes in the background -- it just blew them all off.
Just when the glorious fall colors were starting to ease the pain of losing summer, old man winter has started to gain his icy grip. I won't feel better until I go snowboarding. :-)
