Fall Beauty, Central Indiana

Monday, Jim posted a beautiful portfolio of fall images. I had planned an excursion around the neighborhood here in Hometown. It is such a gorgeous day that I roamed around a bit. My photography can't match Jim's, but I'm posting these anyway. If nothing else, perhaps it will encourage you to get out and look at the beauties God has given you in your surroundings.
A couple old maples.

Bradford pears.

Japanese maple, backed by a still-very-green maple, with blue spruce in foreground.

Euonymous, or however you spell 'firebush.'

Looking north, 400 block N. Conde St.

Dogwood. Again, huge maple in background.

And this is a maple.

The little ash in our backyard, austree on the left.

Yay! Glad you got out with your camera.

I wonder why the firebushes that line the north side of my driveway haven't started to turn red yet.

Around here, we call it "burning bush." The one outside my office window is a brilliant red. Rains and strong winds are limiting opportunities for good shots of fall foliage here in western Michigan.

I have enjoyed your pictures. Blessings, andrea

Thanks, Jim. It was fun. What a glorious time of year!

Chuck, yeah, around here, too. "Burning bush" is more biblical, isn't it?

Thank you, Andrea.
