A Walk in My Woods

Now that most of the leaves are down, I can see my daughter's house through the trees. Click on any of the following for a better look.



There is a lot of interesting bark in my woods.


A few that haven't fallen.


Pods abound.


The black locust gazebo will one day return to the earth.


The Weeping Beech is bare.


The millstone has been shut down for winter.


Piles of leaves everywhere.




The Japanese Maples are beautiful without leaves.


A colorful leaf carpet on the patio.


These antique Argentinian cedar doors lead to the vegetable garden.


Small witch weathervane.


Roses continue to bloom.


The potting shed is closed for winter.


All is quiet by the pond.


There is still a bit of color in this room.


Heading back home.

*I am on a road trip tomorrow so my post will be late.

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Wonderful pictures! I love the different barks on the trees.

Unfortunally is the climate around my cottage to hard for many of those trees with interesting bark structures, so I have to settle with interesting colors instead. No roses here any more and most of the "berries" on them are eaten now.
Have a great trip tomorrow!
