The Fallen Leaves

 Remember when I showed the leaves on my Japanese Maples 2 days ago?  I was thinking that at least a few trees would still look pretty for our big Thanksgiving celebration.



 I as wrong.

 I guess Mother Nature told them they had to drop their leaves before the Full Beaver Moon.

 Icicles on the waterfall.

 At least I have a magical carpet  in my woods.

 Though I have icicles on my creek, I have roses blooming by the potting shed.  Weird weather.

 I even cleaned up my potting shed a bit.

All of my gardening necessities.
The Weeping Beech is always one of the last to give up her leaves but she did it right along with the Acers.  Wouldn't this be a perfect place for grandchildren to play?  Just sayin'!

Everything's looking suitably autumnal for Thanksgiving!

Our backyard was looking mighty nice until it started raining. We desperately need the rain so I can't complain but I had so hoped the weather would be nice for the grandchildren to play outside in our yards.

I just LOOOOVE your potting shed
They do look beautiful on the ground too, lets hope they keep their colors over Thanksgiving.

I have actually a few yellow leafs on a rose bush but I think they are the last ones still hanging on anywhere :-)

Have a great day!
