Fall color is almost over in Massachusetts

The farmer found this piece of rotted wood which reminded him of a bird. We constructed this prehistoric bird scarecrow from it, sumac, and beech leaves. I love the natural feeling and the colors of the leaves. (Yes, you have to use your imagination a bit...)


My "partner in swine" Mike made these wacky creatures from bread dough and flour sacks. Aren't they great? Julia thinks so.

The Beatles visit Bernardston.

The beech leaves are about the last to turn here. You can see all the green ones left in woods in the distance. By next week, there won't be much left to photograph so enjoy it now. (I know - enough with the leaves!)

A drop dead sunset in our front yard.
Stripes of green, red sumac, and tan goldenrod. Sock, anyone?

You can NEVER show too many pictures of autumn leaves. I grew up in Missouri, where the fall is gorgeous, but now live in New Orleans where there is no fall. No autumn leaves. No gold, no red, no yellow. Just brown and green. So, go on. Show as many pictures as you like.
