Guess What's Coming!!

Leaves turn colour at a different pace in the state of Minnesota, beginning first up north along Lake Superior, and then slowly moving south. When in full colour the roads bordering the Mississippi, both on the St. Paul and Minneapolis side are spectacular in various shades of fading green, ruby reds, brilliant yellows, and vibrant oranges. The breathtaking beauty fades quickly, followed by blasts of cold air, ice and snow. Brrr!!

  2. Wish we had the wonderful change of colors here. There are some Liquid Amber and Maples that burst forth but nothing compared to your area.

  4. I've always said Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the colors and the rustle of leaves underfoot, the winds that sweep and scatter those same leaves, the blue skies and crisp air.

    And then Spring comes with her soft palette of color and I say "Spring is my favorite season".

    But, right now, Fall is my favorite season.

    I love your picture of the blazing tree.

  5. Pretty! Here a few trees are starting to get patches of yellow leaves, but nothing dramatic yet.

  8. Fall is a wonderful time of year. The weather is great and the color is enjoyable. As in Minnesota, fall comes in stages here in South Carolina. This is good from a Daily Photo standpoint because it offers many photo opportunities. I look forward to your fall photos.

  12. Yup, it's that time. Soon, all the leaves will be on the ground, leaving seeminly dead trees naked for a long winter.

    I'm gonna take some pictures too, I've decided. No promises as to when though.

  13. When I went up to Sandia Peak the other day I was hoping to see some pretty trees such as this. No such luck ... at least not yet! Thanks for posting this!
