The Splendor of Autumn in the Midwest

red and glorious
maple leaves ~


another maple - different variety
plus our crabapple ~


a few red berries on the crabapple


mums at the neighbor's home


glorious!


it was outside this summer
brought in recently & full of blooms
it's an angelwing jasmine
it smells heavenly


cute decor at the neighbor's


wish i knew what type of maple this is
if i did, i'd have one in my yard too


cute pumpkin plates
perfect for this time of year


i'm a friendly ghost!


cup of tea?
it's 60 degrees outside; shall we go out there and have a cuppa and a snack, and enjoy the splendor of autumn?


this has been one of the most colorful autumns i've ever seen
hope you enjoyed the show
Autumn in Iowa

Fondly,
Beth

Hi Beth,

I think this autumn is more colorful and it seems like the leaves are on the trees longer. It is November and I still have roses blooming! Jasmine is something I haven't grown yet maybe next year.

Hi Beth,
Those really are incredible colours. It's amazing how some people miss them simply because they are distracted...our world is truly exquisite. If only we'd all stop for a second and look around us. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Beth
Fall in Iowa is as colourful as it is in Ontario, just beautiful!
We had a total of 11 kids last night, luckier than our daughter that had over 200.
Hope your night was fun.
