Fall continues

I love fall so much!  Now it's in the 40s in the morning, and it is just crisp and clear and wonderful out. The trees everywhere are all turning colors now.  There are some streets of all yellow, and some streets of all red.  And there are these one kind of trees that are a bizarre purple/yellow that is just plain weird.  I have to get a picture of one of those. (EDIT:  took some pics of those last night, they're at the bottom.) Even the grass at the park has begun to turn orange.

(My sister took this picture, she really liked the leaves.)
(Okay, these are the weird purple/yellow trees, but my phone camera isn't capturing it very well)

Pictures not at an exhibition

Autumn is my favorite season.  I love when the angle of the sunlight changes.  Everything is sharper and clearer.  The weather is crisp and cool.  It is just lovely outside.  I tend to go on longer and longer walks with my dog because it's so pretty out I don't want to go back inside.

The trees here are turning colors.  There are two young maples I pass by that went fully red last week. I didn't have a chance to take a picture until last night, and they're now already past their prime, but still lovely.  Here is one of them.  Love the red leaves against the white bark against the blue sky.

This tree is not even half-yellow yet, but I just liked the way the late afternoon sun was shining through it.

The neighbor's trees going red...

Two perfect leaves...

And because one doesn't live in Idaho with seeing lots of meese, here is a young male we saw while driving around the other day.
