A little bit of Autumn

A quick post for today with a few autumn pictures. Nothing spectacular since I didn't travel any further than my back yard to get them.

And I found this silk flower arrangement right in my dining room

There's no reason for you to go anywhere since you have everything right there. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. My very best to Duke. :)

We love the silk flower arrangement. It is amazing what we can find in our own homes and yards. But that is a gorgeous arrangement. Take care.

Audrey said...

LOVE the flowers!! I can't grow flowers, would probably even kill silk ones :)

BeadedTail said...

I just took pictures of leaves too! Great minds think alike!

Catherine said...

Sometimes the prettiest pictures are in our own back yard... or dining room. :)

Hope you had a happy Monday Ann!

Very nice arrangement!

Grace said...

Fall colors are so vibrant and alive...best season ever!

Beautiful Autumn pictures ... did you know that quite by chance I found out last year that it is sugars in the trees that cause the leaves to turn that wonderful orange and red. (Nice to know that it isn't just people tht have a sweet tooth, isn't it?)

Jean said...

Your Fall colors beats mine here in the south. Dang...we can't complete with y'all in the north.:)

Those are some nice Fall pictures! The leaves around here are just now starting to change. Hopefully, within a few days, we will start getting some nice color.

Meow!
Lovely fall colours!
Thank you for visiting Anna's extra 'hammer-post' for Saturday Centus and also the extra white dog on her 'D is for Dog'-post for Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.
I though Duke would appreciate meeting this beautiful and friendly white dog.

Purrs,
Sara Cat

The silk flowers are great! That's another picture that would make a wonderful background for a card!

The high yesterday (Monday, the 18th) was 79, and they are calling for the high for today to be no more than 60--with some areas not even reaching the 50's. I am feeling a little jerked around here.

Duni said...

Beautiful. I wish we had blue skies like that...

Jen said...

Oooooooh - fabulous! I love the arrangement (it's beautimous ;o)

Russ said...

I don't have much luck with flowers. I bet I could manage the silk one's.

Donna said...

These are so Pretty!
Hope you're having a Great Fall Day!!

Hi Duke, just wanted to tell you that doggies can do Tummy's Tuesday. We would all love it if you did. We know Duke would like to show off his belly. Just saying.

Ann, there is no reason for you travel when you are surrounded by all of that beauty, silk flowers and all.
