Beautiful Autumn Day

Last night, I went out to make sure the little calves had water and saw this. I thought it was beautiful, so I ran back in to get the camera. All of the pictures can be clicked on and made larger.

Michael was getting ready to milk Buttercup tonight. I thought I would get a picture of her. She is at least 12 years old. She has been the best most gentle cow.

Sharri and her children saw 2 praying mantis's on their fall decorations. They actually got picture of them laying their eggs in the egg sac. I had seen a praying mantis on my screen, so I went out to try and find it. It had already layed its eggs and here is the sac. I never did see the insect.

My dear sweet Michael took me to town to do errands today. We took the scenic route so that I could see some of the fall colors. I thought I would let you enjoy some of what I saw.

These last two pictures are on our road on the way home. The color is really starting to come out. I am always thrilled to see it.

Wow! Lovely autumn scenerey there in OH! There are very few trees showing color here in DE. Most of them are dropping their leaves--I think it is due to the drought. :0(
Also, it is still almost 80 here in the daytime--it hasn't cooled down!
Thanks for letting me see some fall scenery! :0)

Beautiful fall colors. I was driving today and having a hard time keeping my eyes on the road, the trees were so pretty right now. I much prefer having someone drive me around.

Beautiful photos. I especially like the last one. There's nothing like driving along a country road where the trees form an arbor overhead.

I'm linking to your blog from mine. I hope this is okay.
